Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Rams CB Trumaine Johnson has virtually no chance to sign a long-term deal with the Rams, according to's Jason La Canfora. The two sides spoke once on the subject and weren't close enough to have a follow-up.

  Jets | Jamaal Adams 'the real deal'    Sun Jun 18, 11:17 AM

New York Jets first-round S Jamal Adams had the most impressive spring of any Jets' rookie since Sheldon Richardson in 2013, according to the New York Post's Brian Costello, who added the No. 6 overall pick will be a Day 1 starter and should have an immediate impact on the defense.

Footballguys view: The Jets don't do everything right (see quarterback, etc) but man alive do they have an exciting young secondary building with Adams as a key cornerstone. Adams will team up with fellow rookie FS Marcus Maye (second round, Florida) to provide the Jets with a physical, athletic and aggressive safety duo. The rest of the team needs plenty of work, but Adams and Maye are a great combination for the Jets to build from.

  Colts | Clayton Geathers likely to miss start of camp    Sat Jun 17, 03:59 PM

Indianapolis Colts S Clayton Geathers (neck) likely will not be ready for the start of training camp because he is recovering from offseason neck surgery and may even miss the start of the regular season.

Footballguys view: Neck injuries are nothing nice, and they are tricky to come back from. Geathers was a playmaker for the Colts against the run last year, and his presence will be missed if he sits for a time during the regular season. T.J. Green and Malik Hooker might open the season as the Colts starting safeties.

  NFL | Tramon Williams looking for contender    Sat Jun 17, 02:43 PM

Free-agent CB Tramon Williams (Browns) said he looking to sign with a contending team and is willing to play cornerback or safety.

Footballguys view: At 34-years old, Williams is not the player he once was during his heyday with the Packers. Williams started five games at cornerback for the Browns last season and two games at safety. If someone picks him up, it's likely going to come with the expectation that the veteran will play safety.

  Jets | Marcus Maye impressive at workouts    Sun Jun 11, 07:30 PM

New York Jets S Marcus Maye has impressed the organization with his ability to pick up the defensive scheme and limit the mental mistakes during offseason workouts.

Footballguys view: The Jets reshaped the back end of their defense with the selection of Maye in round two and SS Jamal Adams in round one of the 2017 NFL draft. These two will be the vanguard for the Jets as they work towards rebuilding their franchise. Maye is a player who can roam as he's incredibly instinctive.
