The New York Football Jets have come to an agreement with former Los Angeles Rams CB Trumaine Johnson — $15 million per year, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Congratulations on being filthy rich, Tru.

Sammy Watkins will sign with Kansas City Chiefs | ESPN

A 48 million dollar deal that’s worth 3 years and 30 of that is guaranteed. OK. I’m saying that we dodged a bullet. But history will probably prove that I’m lousy at knowing stuff. Sammy is 24 and could very well become a legend in Kansas City. I’m more conflicted about this move than I expected.

SPOILER: this is how the article ends, “Josh Reynolds, a fourth-round pick last year, could replace Watkins. Reynolds caught 11 passes for 104 yards and a touchdown last season.” I feel like Gary Klein just threw some shade at Young Josh. Guys, let’s start a Gary Klein-Josh Reynolds beef. I’m bored.

Cool? Do we really think that Ndamukong Suh is going to sign with the Rams? He’ll want more than 10 million a year. Is that what we’re doing with our resources? I mean, I’m not saying I’m against it, I would just be very surprised, that’s all. But I feel like there’s a lot of chatter about this idea.
