Jenkins had just 29 tackles and one pass defensed with the Dolphins in 2016 while also missing seven games due to a knee injury. When healthy, he's a starting caliber linebacker, and he's expected to compete with Tyrell Adams for the Raiders starting weakside linebacker position in 2017.
Jenkins is expected to visit the Raiders this week, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.
A 2013 fourth-round selection, Jenkins started 34 of his 53 regular-season games in four years with the Dolphins, highlighted by a 110-tackle, 3.5-sack campaign in 2014.

Jenkins should be healthy this offseason, as he returned for Miami's lone playoff game after making just one appearance in December.
