The Jets are set to sign Johnson to a deal worth approximately $15 million annually, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported, via a source informed of the situation.
"This is a marriage that was always going to happen," Rapoport explained on NFL Total Access. "It was just a matter of settling on the right number."
A big, physical cornerback at 6-foot-1 and over 200 pounds, Johnson figures to replace free agent Morris Claiborne as the No. 1 cover man in Todd Bowles' defense.
