Gregg Williams “can’t wait” to have Trumaine Johnson in games again

Cornerback Trumaine Johnson did not live up to expectations in his first season with the Jets and said in April that he was happy to have a “clean slate” with the team’s new coaching staff as he heads into his second year with the team.

Turning the page from last year makes sense, although Johnson may reach further back into his past as he tries to put together a better 2019 season. The Jets’ new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams had the same job with the Rams for four of Johnson’s six seasons with the team and said that he hopes to spark the same kind of success that Johnson had in those seasons.

“His best years were when we were together,” Williams said, via the New York Daily News. “He’s really motivated. He understands me. I understand him. It’s my job to try to help him be the best he can be. He’s excited. I’ve been excited about the work that he has put in here. . . . There’s a good familiarity there. I can’t wait to get back in games together, because he and I have had some really good moments together.”

The Jets have some things to sort out at cornerback beyond Johnson and that makes it all the more important that he play up to his past level this time around.

    I feel like Gregg Williams has been the defensive coordinator for at least 22 of the 32 teams in the NFL.

    You’d be correct. It’s because he is a blowhoard and wildly overrated.

    BB also hates Gregg Williams so don’t be shocked to see NE try to make him look foolish with his mouthbreathing, low IQ defense.

  2. Gregg Williams correctly read Johnson´s talents when they were together with the Rams.

    Johnson is slow: 4.61 / 40; but he is long, with great jumping ability and ball skills.
    Thus, Johnson is excellent in zone coverage, but subpar in man-to-man.

    “All of a sudden” Johnson is going to be an excellent CB in GW´s D.

    And Brady shreds zone. The Pats rookie will abuse Johnson.

  4. Gregggg is overblown, The Browns defense led the league in missed tackles last year and most of it was playing his out dated aggressive style defense and limiting his players. Myles said he was only allowed to use two moves, Peppers was lined up 40 yards away from the ball at all times. Gregggggg has no idea how to develop or use young players.

  5. Trumaine Johnson was slow and looked bad last year.
    I don’t see him playing anywhere near his 11MM contract.
    He will be cut after the season, with the team eating his accelerated cap hit.

    Exactly. For some reason, he runs his mouth and people buy into him being good. It’s hilarious. He’s the Todd Haley of DCs.
