Jenkins signed a contract with the Cardinals on Tuesday. Jenkins, an eight-year veteran cornerback, heads to Arizona after spending the past two seasons in Tampa Bay. Last year with the Buccaneers, Jenkins totaled 14 tackles and five passes defended as he started in five games. The Cardinals have made it clear they are open to competition for the starting cornerback position alongside Patrick Peterson. While many expect Justin Bethel to be the starter in Week 1, Jenkins, along with rookies Brandon Williams and Harlan Miller, could make a run for the spot.
Buccaneers cornerback Mike Jenkins logged 51 snaps in place of the injured Johnthan Banks in Week 5, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Jenkins only produced a tackle and pass defensed over those 51 plays, but figures to continue to start after the bye week if Banks is not ready for a return. The veteran corner is receiving his first meaningful playing time since his stint with the Raiders in 2013.
Buccaneers cornerback Mike Jenkins (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints. Jenkins missed the Bucs' ugly Week 1 loss to the Titans, but his presence likely wouldn't have made any difference, as he only appears to be the fourth or fifth cornerback.
Buccaneers cornerback Mike Jenkins (hamstring) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Joe Kania of the team's official website reports. Jenkins was inactive in the opener with the injury, and has still only stepped on the field for one game in just over a season with the team. Despite the fact that a pectoral injury caused him to miss 15 games in his first season with the Bucs, the team sufficiently valued his experience and depth to re-sign him to a 1-year deal in the offseason. The eighth-year pro played in all four of the Bucs' preseason contests, totaling six tackles, one pass defensed and one forced fumble. Jenkins is currently slotted as the third-string right cornerback behind Tim Jennings and starter Johnthan Banks.
The Buccaneers announced Thursday they re-signed cornerback Mike Jenkins and extended qualifying offers to exclusive rights free agents Danny Lansanah and Bradley McDougald. By extending qualifying offers to Lansanah and McDougald, the team ensures the two will be back in 2015. When they sign their offers, they will essentially be signing one-year deals. Jenkins signed a one-year contract.
