The Rams are reportedly looking to deal the corner they just franchise tagged.

Ready for another twist in NFL free agency? Apparently the Rams are looking for a trade partner to take Trumaine Johnson off their hands just days after handing him the franchise tag for the second straight year. I can only assume this means that long term contract negotiations didn’t exactly get off to a great start.

Johnson could be another target back on the board for the Titans as they look to improve their cornerback room over the next few days. I can't imagine them giving up much for a guy that they will have to negotiate a brand new and expensive free agent deal with, but it's a good fall back option if they strike out on the Bouye/Gilmore/Ryan/Kirkpatrick sweepstakes. He would give the Titans a big, long playmaking corner if he ended up here.
