Report: Patriots will sign Michael Jenkins


Sometimes, it seems like Bill Belichick does unusual things just to prove that he’s smarter than other people.

According to Jason LaCanfora of, the Patriots are signing former Vikings wideout Michael Jenkins.

The 30-year-old Jenkins can’t really run, and caught 40 passes last season for the Vikings, who weren’t exactly overburdened with depth at his position. He has size and good hands, but lacks the ability to get open.

It’s doubtful Jenkins got much beyond the minimum to sign, which makes it a free look at a moderately productive veteran.
