Report: Raiders Top Free Agent Target Will Be Rams CB Trumaine Johnson
Everyone is wondering where the Raiders will make their biggest splash in free agency this offseason.
According to Tony Pauline, the position will be cornerback and the player will be Trumaine Johnson – or at least that’s the position and player the Raiders hope it will be.
This is Pauline’s report via DraftAnalyst.com:
“I’m told Trumaine Johnson is the No. 1 target for the Oakland Raiders in free agency and that the team will make a pointed effort to sign the cornerback. Johnson is expected to have numerous suitors once free agency opens, and Oakland views Johnson as a great pairing with Gareon Conley.”
Johnson turned 28 in January and played for the Rams under the franchise tag in 2017. He has 18 interceptions over six NFL seasons.
For what it’s worth, he was born and raised in Stockton, California.
