Former first-round pick of the Dallas Cowboys Mike Jenkins has not generated much interest this offseason, but is all changing with two teams starting to surface as potential suitors for the free agent cornerback. The Oakland Raiders and Jacksonville Jaguars are the two teams who have been mentioned as interested in Jenkins and the latter of the two teams will be bringing in Jenkins for a visit.
Pro Football Talk was the first with the report.
Jenkins became expendable when the Cowboys signed cornerback Brandon Carr in free agency and traded up in the 2012 NFL Draft for Morris Claiborne. The two players bumped Jenkins from the starting line up and landed him on the trading block just a season ago.
The 28-year-old could benefit from a change of scenery and a chance to revive his career.
Jenkins has talent, but he was never able to come in to his own. It is a low-risk, high-reward move by any team that would be willing to sign the former first-rounder in free agency. The Jaguars could be making a very wise gamble.
