Trumaine Johnson Won't Sign Long-Term Deal With Rams By Deadline

Jun 27, 2017 12:00 PM

Trumaine Johnson will not reach agreement with the Los Angeles Rams on a long-term contract by the July 17 deadline.

Johnson will play under the franchise tender for the second straight season.

Johnson signed his franchise tender with the Rams on March 6, guaranteeing himself a 2017 salary of $16.742 million that will make him the NFL's highest-paid cornerback.

Johnson, a third-round pick out of Montana in 2012, is the first cornerback to be tagged in back-to-back years since Charles Woodson in 2004 and '05. Johnson made $13.952 million when he was tagged in 2016.

Derek Carr, Raiders Agree Upon Five-Year, $125M Extension

Jun 22, 2017 11:38 AM

Derek Carr and the Oakland Raiders have finalized a five-year, $125 million extension.

Carr, 26, is now under contract through 2022. His extension's average salary of $25 million will make him the NFL's highest-paid player in terms of new money average.

Carr's deal could potentially be backloaded until the Raiders move to Las Vegas; there is no state tax in Nevada, whereas California's tax rate is 13.3 percent. Carr could save hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not millions.

Carr passed for 3,937 yards and 28 touchdowns with just six interceptions last season.
