When the Los Angeles Rams do get to training camp, corner Trumaine Johnson will not have a long-term deal.

He will play the season under the franchise tag, as both sides failed to reach agreement on a long-term deal by last week’s deadline, according to ESPN

Johnson tied for third in the NFL with seven interceptions, and he led the team with 12 pass breakups last season. In his four seasons, Johnson had 15 interceptions.  

The Rams elected to retain Johnson with the franchise tag, instead of re-signing last season’s other starter Janoris Jenkins. Jenkins was also a free agent, but he signed a five year, $62.5 million contract with the New York Giants.

Added, the Rams training camp is approaching in less than two weeks. The team announced a three-year deal to host training at the University of California Irvine.

Open practices to the public will also be free. Autographs will also be signed after each practice. The first open practice will be July 30.

The Rams open training camp for rookies on July 26. The rest of the team will report on July 29.
