If nobody raises their hand to make serious offers, then that should show he and his agent that the market for him is here in Dallas and maybe you work a 3 year deal with an option in year 3. That gives him the chance to show he can play, on the field and, while not ideal, would still give him an opportunity to sign a 3 or 4 year deal for big money if he shows something.
Since he's an unrestricted FA. we don't have the 'tender' option. All we can do is offer him a contract an see if he accepts or franchise him. There's no way we franchise him and I'm sure that there are other teams out there that know his story and will pay him. My guess is that he gets a pretty big contract this offseason. Below Carr $$ but above Scandrick $$.
There have been whispers for years that Jenkins could not wait to get out of Dallas and go back home to Florida. Guess we'll see if those whispers were correct.
