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.

The former Rams cornerback will reportedly land with the Giants once free agency begins at 4 p.m. ET and he's landing in a pile of cash.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN the deal will be worth $62.5 million over five years while Mike Garafolo reports the deal will contain a whopping $29 million guaranteed.

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.

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.

New York also re-signed defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, salvaging a relationship with a player they badly need to play at top form to help their pass rush.
