Offer in hand from Jaguars, Jenkins to keep making visits

Jenkins AP

The slow market for most free agents has resulted an extended period of time within which guys will be signing.

Nearly three weeks into the process, for example, cornerback Mike Jenkins is focused on finding a new team.

The 2008 first-round pick of the Cowboys has visited the Jaguars — and received an offer.  He’ll now be shopping that offer during trips to Oakland and Buffalo.

Jenkins was presumed to be the odd man out last year, after the Cowboys signed Brandon Carr and drafted Morris Claiborne.  Jenkins’ freedom instead has come at a time when fewer teams than ever are paying significant money for veteran players.

    Is this guy any good? Looked promising coming out of USF

    I’ve seen every game he’s played in and if he’s healthy Jacksonville could have an exceptional corner on the cheap.

    waste of talent. the guy has talent, no doubt.

    Anybody else notice how much shorter and less rich pretty much all of the FA contracts have been this year? Smells of a little bit more collusion

    “Jenkins’ freedom instead has come at a time when fewer teams than ever are paying significant money for veteran players.”

    Here I thought the new CBA was supposed to provide more money for Veteran Free Agents and not unproven Rookies? Maybe its only providing more money for Tony Romo?

    Mike Jenkins is a frail, tentative corner who shies away from contact. Don’t ever count on him to play bump and run. He gets beat often and quits when up against a dominating receiver. He gets injured when he actually does try to tackle and is more concerned about his appearance than learning the nuances of the game.

    if he was that good, why would he still be a FA still this late,and only team to give him a offer is the lowly jags, i would keep looking too mike lol

    Jenkins is a decent cover cornerback with speed and the ability to make big plays. He can be overly aggressive, so he’s caught out of position from time to time.

    The biggest question about him is whether he’s tough. He’s shied away from big hits (see Giants and Packers). He’s also been injured, which may be why he doesn’t make big hits.

    Overall, he’s a solid corner that is an upgrade for many teams.

    I think he would be a perfect upgrade. They need to try to make this happy he would work much better in Bradley’s D.

    Jenkins thnks he is an all pro in his little world but reality is his productivity has been dropping for years. He better be glad he got that Jags offer.
