NFL Rumors: Arizona Cardinals one of five teams interested in Mike Jenkins


Free agent cornerback Mike Jenkins has five teams interested in him according to Vic Tafur and a return to the Oakland Raiders where he played after signing a one-year deal in 2013 could be remote at this point with free agency set to begin in two hours.

Of the five teams who have shown interest in the former first round pick by the Dallas Cowboys out of South Florida, the Arizona Cardinals may be the team to beat.

In 15 games last season, Jenkins had 65 tackles, two interceptions, a forced fumble and a recovery. Cornerbacks are expected to be one of the big three positions in free agency this year along with defensive end and offensive tackle, so Jenkins could be a bargain for teams who strike out on the higher-profile options like Darrelle Revis, Aqib Talib or Charles Tillman.
