Report: Janoris Jenkins to sign 5-year, $62M deal with big-spending Giants
Janoris Jenkins wasn't given the franchise tag but he should be happy about it because he just got paid in free agency.
Janoris Jenkins wasn't given the franchise tag but he should be happy about it because one of the top-10 players on Pete Prisco's Free Agency Rankings just got paid in free agency.
That's $12.5 million per year and $5.8 million guaranteed per year on the contract, which would make him the second-highest paid in terms of guarantee per year (not counting former teammate Trumaine Johnson on a one-year, franchise-tag deal), behind only Darrelle Revis, who shares the same agents, Schwartz and Feinsod. (Might want to give them a call, cornerbacks.)
The average per year is also a top-10 deal.
Jenkins is not Darrelle Revis in his prime, but he's an immensely talented corner with serious play-making skills. He is, ahem, sometimes susceptible to giving up big plays.
Janoris Jenkins' career cover stats:— Ben Stockwell (@PFF_Ben) March 9, 2016
Yds allowed: 2,989 (3rd most since '12 by CB)
TD allowed: 22 (3rd)
INT: 10 (t-12th)
PDs: 34 (t-7th)
Those yardage and touchdown numbers are mildly terrifying.
But we're talking about a very talented corner in the first year of his contract who should help solidify a Giants defense which is having some money pumped it into this offseason.
