Cowboys’ Jenkins wants a contract extension

AP

The Cowboys just paid top dollar to sign cornerback Brandon Carr in free agency, and now Dallas’ other starting corner may be feeling a bit slighted.

Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com reports that the agent for Mike Jenkins, Drew Rosenhaus, has approached the Cowboys about a contract extension for his client. No financial details have been exchanged, but “there is hope” that a long-term deal can be reached.

Jenkins, 27, has shown a willingness to play through injury as a Cowboy, although recurring shoulder problems have oftentimes rendered him ineffective. Jenkins is a highly skilled corner with playmaking ability when healthy, however.

Still, a deal may be tough to consummate from the Cowboys’ perspective if Jenkins wants a deal like Carr’s.

Jenkins is due a $1.052 million base salary entering the final season of his rookie deal.

  1. Just sit tight, Mike.
    Once we throw egg on Mara’s face in front of the arbitrator and make him apologize and give us our cap money back, we’ll be right with you.

  2. Well Mike… why don’t the Boys see if you can actually cover people on a more consistant basis. Just because Newman got released doesn’t mean they were particularly happy with your inconsistant play.

  3. Well Mike, you have to play for 60 minutes of football regardless of the score. Like when you started playing hurt early in the 2nd half when your team was getting thumped by the Eagles…in both games.

    Then once you shake the magical fairy dust from your outdated and crusty cowboys pleather jackets you all love to wear and the fluffy, dream clouds dissapate from over your head and you wake up from that same damp dream that Eagles’ fans enjoy slumbering to, you will come to reality and know that King Mara and the Giants will never apologize for anything especially to your wrinkly, gas-bag owner.

    For what?

    He was okay his rookie year.

    He had a pretty good year in 2010.

    He was often injuried and had a bad year in 2011.

    How ’bout he stays healthy, plays the full year, and then he can get a contract based on his performance???

    Imagine that, huh?

    What Mara did was a bitch move and if you don’t know it you are in denial.
    Pleather Jackets? I see a Giant fan a day at least wearing one. (Midtown Manhattan”

    Get your “Wide right” “Lucky Helmet Catch” “Welker drop” head up out your butt.

  7. Mike Jenkins gets smoked more than Nate Newtons crack pipe. I would say that it’s comical that this mediocre no talent ass clown wants a raise, but it’s no surprise. He’s lucky he got paid the first round money he did otherwise he’d be signing the veterans minimum with the Bengals tomorrow.

  8. Nicks and Cruz are gonna burn him all night come week 1. He stinks. Then djax and MacLin will toast him too.

  9. Title should read: “Gasbag Rosenhaus Wants to hold Teams Hostage for Mediocre Talent”

    but then again, that would not be news.

  10. raise,do you not know what kind of economy were in right now,1 million must be hard to live on especially when you don’t show up and actually cover receivers

  11. Didn’t he willingly sign the current one?? If so why should the organization give him the time of day??

    ———————————————————-then u woke up and relized that mara is goodells b8888.dallas is a great franchise do me a favor stay off the cowboys blogg ,oh thats right ur were cheering for them in the 90’s get of the wagon

  14. This is why the cowgirls are going to be terrible for years. Jerrah picked Jenkins WAY TOO HIGH. I think Jerrah has a copy of Kiper’s draft board and drafts the “best available” player. Until he hands the reins of the girls over to a competent GM the girls will stink for years.

  15. This is the least of the boys issues, Tuck, OSI and Pierre-Paul off the edge in week one is a more pressing problem.

    All In. Romo might not make it past week one.

  16. Never fails, I cannot watch a single Cowboys national broadcast without hearing the commentator utter, ‘Cowboys player down after the play, looks like 21, Mike Jenkins. Update after the break’

  17. Jenkins needs to play better he has to do better coverage than what he is doing and well also become better in run support you remember Brandon Jacobs right that just sticks in my head at least pinch him come on extension please!!!

  18. Jerry should take a chance and make Jenkins play out this contract. Lets see what he can do. if he produces then pay him. if not let him go at the end of the season.

  20. Cowboys fan here. Jenkins sucks and the sooner he is done stealing money from the team I root for, the better. The loser is hot garbage.

  21. Giant fans come on our blog because they know where the best reside and they have to write “knocks” on America’s team. Cowboys were a dynasty Giants never were nor will they ever be. We still have more superbowls then you. Tell your dirt bag owner to kick the bucket like his pops the world will be a better place. Congratulations on hitting the lottery last year. That’s fine now September 5th we get to embarrass you in your own house. Be ready. 5x World Champs and don’t forget it.
