Cardinals bringing Mike Jenkins in for a visit

The Cardinals haven’t heard back from Antonio Cromartie, so they’re making backup plans.

According to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, cornerback Mike Jenkins is visiting the Cardinals today after his trip to Tampa Bay yesterday.

Jenkins is obviously a different caliber of player than Cromartie, which will be reflected in his price.

But if the Cardinals can’t get Cromartie, they’re going to need some depth there, which is where Jenkins fits in.

He might have fallen short of the expectations the Cowboys had when they drafted him in the first round, but he’s a serviceable player who could help a good team.

Even if he’s not their first choice.

    Maybe Cromartie has been hit by a player high on Adderall before.

    Keim is trying to undo the evils of the last regime. Mainly by not getting into bad, lengthy contracts.

    Jenkins did OK last year. He was surprisingly physical. Hit hard and played tough, which I didn’t expect.

    With the Honey Badger still out for training camp and the first of the season, the Cards really need someone who can and is willing to produce press coverage.

    Don’t look for real press coverage from PP as he hates press coverage and prefers playing off the line. Besides, he no longer has that blazing closing speed he had in his first two years that allowed him to make up for his mistakes. That lost of his burst of speed is also why his returns have looked unremarkable for the past few years.
