The New York Giants are expected to shell out big money for cornerback Janoris Jenkins once the free agent window opens Wednesday afternoon.
While there is still suspense about where some of the top free agents in the NFL will go once the free agency window opens up Wednesday afternoon, one thing is a certainty: many stars are going to be getting PAID to move from one team to another.
Such is the case with cornerback Janoris Jenkins, who reportedly will be leaving the (now) Los Angeles Rams for greener pastures (literally) just outside the Big Apple:
When the ink is signed on the contract, it has been reported that Jenkins (considered to be the top cornerback on the open market this year) will get in the ballpark of $12 million a season by the New York Giants:
That price tag was reportedly too expensive for the Rams, who had expressed a desire to keep Jenkins with the franchise as they move back to the West Coast. The four-year veteran saw his role increase each season, becoming a starter in 2014.
Last season, Jenkins had three interceptions to bring his career total to 10, and was consistently rated as one of the top cornerbacks in the league. He will join a New York Giants defense looking to rebuild after finishing dead last in the league during the 2015 season.
