When the Jets signed cornerback Trumaine Johnson to a five-year Jamal Adams Jersey , $72 million contract this offseason, the thought was he should come in and immediately improve the Jets’ defense. In a sense, he did, as he intercepted a pass in Week One. But since then, the results have not been pretty.Johnson has been profoundly disappointing to people inside the organization, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, who quotes one source as saying, 鈥淭hought he鈥檇 be better.鈥滻n fact, since that solid performance in Week One, the Jets’ defense has actually played better during the five games Johnson missed when he was injured. Many league observers believe Darryl Roberts, the minimum-salary backup who was starting while Johnson was hurt http://www.jetsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-lac-edwards-jersey , has actually played better than Johnson this season. That’s despite the fact that Johnson will pocket $26 million in salary and bonuses in his first year with the Jets, while Roberts makes less than $1 million.Johnson returned to the lineup on Sunday, moving Roberts to the bench, and the Jets promptly turned in their worst defensive performance of the season.The 28-year-old Johnson looks like he’s not as good a fit in coach Todd Bowles’ defense as he was with what the Rams were asking him to do. That’s always a risk with a free-agent signing, that a player earns a big contract because he plays well in one situation, but doesn’t play well in the next situation.Bowles is likely to be fired after this season, which means it’s going to be some other coach trying to get the most out of Johnson next year. Whoever that coach is, they’d better get the most out of Johnson. He’s set to cost $12 million against the Jets’ salary cap in 2019 and $15 million in 2020, and the way his contract is structured makes it virtually impossible for the Jets to move on from him until then. He still has time to get things turned around, but through his first half season with the Jets, he’s looking like an expensive mistake. The New York Jets have filled two open spots on the practice squad by signing wide receiver J.J. Jones and center Jon Toth.J.J. Jones is a 25 year old (turns 26 in December) 5’ 10” Color Rush Brandon Copeland Jersey , 175 pound wide receiver. He went undrafted in the 2018 NFL draft and was signed by the Los Angeles Chargers as an undrafted free agent. In three games with the Chargers Jones managed the unlikely feat of having zero receptions, one rushing attempt, and two fumbles. He returned five punts for 24 yards and a 4.8 yard average, as well as three kicks for 69 yards and a 23 yard average.It’s a bit difficult to understand what NFL teams see in Jones. He was never a dominant or even a mildly productive receiver at West Georgia. His best year he had 24 receptions for 278 yards. He had some success as a returner, but was by no means dominant. Jones has some straight line speed and some lateral quickness, so perhaps he can make something of himself as a returner and backup slot receiver. You can check out his college highlights, such as they are, in this Youtube video:Jon Toth is a 24 year old, 6’ 5”, 307 pound center out of the University of Kentucky. Toth is a powerful blocker but a middling athlete with heavy feet and little lateral quickness who struggles in space. He went undrafted in the 2017 NFL draft and was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles to the practice squad in December 2017. Toth spent the 2018 preseason with the Eagles before being cut on final cutdown day. The Eagles re-signed Toth to their 2018 practice squad before releasing him in late September.
