The Trumaine Johnson situation is one that many New York Jets fans are really disappointed about. The team had big expectations from him after they got him last year, but his inability to produce so far has been a source of frustration.

The team has decided to bench him during their Week 2 loss to the Cleveland Browns, something that they didn’t expect to see out of a player they signed big money to get.

Jets head coach Adam Gase answered questions about his decision to bench the defender that they signed for five years and $72.5 million. He explained that things don’t happen the way they were drawn up to be all the time.

“I was, I was. It just hasn’t worked out as well as we need it to. The good thing is we have a long ways to go,” Gase said, per Pro Football Talk’s Michael David Smith.

If you look at Johnson’s career with the Rams organization, it’s understandable why they gave him the big money he wanted. He notched 327 tackles, nine TFLs, 18 interceptions for 294 yards, and three fumble recoveries in his six years with the team.

While his production dipped when he moved tot he Jets, he managed a decent 40 tackles, four interceptions, and a fumble recovery. However, his production as of late forced the team to bench him.

He was asked about his reaction to his benching, but he took the benching in stride and put all of the attention to his teammates.

“I was going with the ones, back and forth, all week during practice,” Johnson said. “… I didn’t play. I was just there to support my teammates today.”

No one will be surprised if the Jets put him on the trading block. The question is whether a team is interested enough to make a move for him.
