It isn't news that the Jets have cut veteran CB Trumaine Johnson, but it hasn't been official. Until now.
At end of day on June 1, New York parting ways with Johnson will be set in stone as a post-June 1 cut. In doing so, GM Joe Douglas makes a smart move to save a lot in cap room.
Johnson's $15 million in 2020 salary was still on the team's books. But as of tomorrow, he will only count for $4 million toward the cap. In turn, the Jets will have $11 million put back on their cap.
