Cowboys are shopping Mike Jenkins

As soon as the Cowboys traded their first and second round picks to move up and select Morris Claiborne, it became immediately obvious that the they were likely to try to trade Mike Jenkins.  Jenkins is in the final year of his rookie contract, and had publicly expressed interest in getting a long term deal done.  The Cowboys responded by basically outright saying that a contract extension for Jenkins wasn’t in their plans.  A quick breakdown of Jenkins:

  • Up and down career. Very down in 2010. One of the worst CB’s in the NFL that season, and became somewhat of a target after basically letting James Jones walk into the end zone without attempting a tackle in a blowout against the Packers.  It was the second time he had done something of that nature.
  • Rebounded a bit in 2011. Played much better than he had in 2010, and showed a little more toughness by playing through a shoulder injury.
  • 27 years old.
  • As mentioned already, he’ll be an unrestricted free agent in 2013. Only making $1.052 million in 2012.
  • Not a play maker.  5 picks in 2009, 1 in each of his other 3 seasons as a pro. (8 in 4 years). 1 FF for his career, no FR, no sacks.
  • Has only missed 6 games in his career, but has a history of being dinged up.

Some team out there might see potential, and take a flier on him.  I think a 6 is realistic, and the Cowboys would be thrilled with a 5.

    If the Vikings don’t find someone tomorrow, I think they’ll be interested for a low round pick.

    Well if Asante is only worth a seventh …

    I know, different situations, money and age, but still.

    It kind of makes me chuckle. I’ve been a life-long Eagles fan, but it just proves how crazy Eagles fans get in the immediate rather than waiting for things to pan out.

    I remember how upset Eagles fans were that the Cowboys drafted Spencer and Jenkins and Jones in successive years and how much Eagles fans wanted those guys. Turns out the Eagles were wiser than a lot of fans. Now you can certainly rail them for the picks they did make, but give them a little praise for passing on these guys when the fanbase wanted them.

    Probowl season*… blame my phone

  38. DerfDiggy says:

    Lol I love your site… But Jimmy your hate for all things Cowboys bleeds through your writing? Jenkins is better than you’re making him sound. You didn’t even mention his profile bowl season at all… But immediately pointed to his down season.

    Wish that said… I’d be happy with a 5th.

    1. He was a “Pro Bowler” in the same way Ken Hamlin was a “Pro Bowler.”

      1. DerfDiggy says:

        Define it how you want.. The point is was making is thatyou didn’t even highlight that year… Which was a great season.

        He’s been up and down…admittedly… But if you were to look at his career, the bad year is the exception, not the normal.

      2. Nah, that’s too much. Jenkins in 09 was better than Hamlin ever was.
