Jenkins will re-sign with the Redskins on Tuesday, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.
Jenkins was released by the Redskins just two weeks ago, but due to Washington's abysmal performance on the defensive line Monday, the team will now rely on him to help turn things around. The 13-year vet has more experience than any current member of the Washington front seven. Last season, Jenkins tallied three sacks and 26 combined tackles in 16 games for the Giants.
Jenkins was released by the Redskins on Saturday.
After working out with the team Monday the Redskins opted to sign the veteran defensive tackle. However, Jenkins was unable to make it through the final roster cuts. He was competing with Jerrell Powe and Matthew Ioannidis for a backup role.
Jenkins signed a one-year deal with Washington on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Jenkins worked out with the team on Monday morning and impressed enough to land a spot on the roster with just two weeks until the season begins.

Jenkins recorded 15 tackles and three sacks last season with the Giants.
