Jenkins will sign a contract with the Giants when free agency begins Wednesday at 4:00 ET, the New York Daily News reports. After spending his first four seasons with the Rams, Jenkins will head to New York on a multi-year deal that will average over $12 million per season. He will likely take the starting cornerback spot opposite Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie from Prince Amukamara, who was allowed to become a free agent and is now even more unlikely to return to the Giants.
With the Rams using the franchise tag on Trumaine Johnson on Tuesday, teams will soon be free to contact Jenkins for his services, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports. Jenkins recently fired his agent and voiced his displeasure with contract negotiations via Twitter, so things are not going well for the Rams if they hope to keep Jenkins. They do have a lot of cap space, but had to spend quite a bit to keep Johnson, so Jenkins may be headed elsewhere, especially if he feels like he's not getting his due in Los Angeles.
Jenkins (concussion) is active for Thursday's game against the Buccaneers, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official website reports. With Jenkins and Trumaine Johnson both healthy for the first time since Week 11, Bucs wideout Mike Evans draws a tough individual matchup. One of the league's better corners this season, Jenkins has 52 tackles, three interceptions, 14 passes defensed and a forced fumble in 12 appearances.
Jenkins has received clearance from the concussion protocol and is listed as probable for Thursday's contest against the Buccaneers, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. After his second stint in the protocol for head injuries this season, Jenkins is proving susceptible to one of the murkiest potential ailments. In any case, he should return to his starting role at cornerback opposite Trumaine Johnson.
Jenkins (concussion) is inactive Sunday against the Lions, Nick Wagoner of ESPN reports. Jenkins missed practice all week, and his absence from the lineup is no surprise. He's arguably the Rams best cornerback, and Marcus Robertson is likely to handle reps at the right corner this week. This is potentially a big boost for the Lions passing attack.
