The Dallas Cowboys surprised everyone by trading up from No. 14 to the sixth overall pick and selecting cornerback Morris Claiborne. Somewhat less surprising is that, with the arrival of Brandon Carr via free agency and Claiborne via the draft, starting cornerback Mike Jenkins is now regarded as expendable.
A league source tells PFT that the Cowboys are shopping Jenkins, and that the Cowboys are willing to move him during the 2012 draft.
Jenkins has been a full-time starter since 2009. The first-round pick in 2008 is entering the final year of his rookie deal, at a base salary of slightly more than $1 million.
A shoulder injury is expected to keep Jenkins from participating in offseason workouts.
