Buzz builds of Janoris Jenkins staying with the Rams


Janoris Jenkins wasn’t happy with the offer he got from the Rams prior to the deadline for using the franchise tag. He could soon be getting a lot happier with whatever the Rams are offering.

There’s a building buzz in league circles that Jenkins will ultimately remain with the Rams, keeping him in place for at least another year with fellow cornerback Trumaine Johnson, who has received (and accepted) the franchise tag.

Jenkins parted ways with his agent not long before the deadline for using the tag, and he has since hired Neil Schwartz and Jonathan Feinsod. Their primary job has been to see what else is out there, in order to compare it to whatever the Rams will offer.

Despite Jenkins’ performance in four years with the Rams, he arrived in 2012 with plenty of red flags. Those red flags, while fading, could make other teams concerned about the prospect of breaking the bank for a guy they don’t know. The Rams know him, and they clearly trust him.

The real question is whether he’ll continue to earn that trust after swapping his original four-year, $5 million deal for something that pays out a lot more.

    Hell be dumb to leave the Rams and Fisher after they were the only team having faith in him drafting and offering a respectable contract

    Rams will still suck. It will just come at a higher cost.

    He’s too short to be a dominant corner…

    Lions on line 1

    Team is better off with him.

    Of the Rams who have been arrested or suspended the last four years, he is not one of them. Deserves credit for keeping his nose clean and improving as a player.

    This would be huge but EJ Gaines would have been a more than adequate replacement. Let’s hope Jenkins can duplicate last season where for the first time he really cutback on gambling for the big play and getting burned.

    He’s got a chance to come to LA and be a star. Be wise.

    thats ok, if we cant get him , we can go after Sean Smith. Personally I prefer to rob from the AFC west. With that said if Eric Weddle does not sign with the Raiders, I would like to get McLeod .

    He’s a talented player, but don’t be surprised if he falls off a cliff after getting a big contract.

    Jenkins would be a great playmaking corner to go with Amerson, TJ Carrie, Weddle…

    Raiders will have lots of pass rush and Janoris capitalizes off of that kind of situation

    Jenkins is a stud and one of the most dangerous defensive players (to score) in the NFL. There is a reason why teams continually threw at Trumaine Johnson instead of Jenkins last year even though he had 7 picks. A gambler by nature his game has been refined and improved every year and is still trending upward.

    He is signing with NYG
