    OXNARD, CALIF. — For the entire offseason, Mike Jenkins remained silent, leaving others to assume that the cornerback was unhappy with his situation. On Monday, at the Cowboys’ first training camp involving the full team, he finally confirmed as much.

    “It was very frustrating at first,” he said.

    After undergoing major surgery on his right shoulder in January, Jenkins watched the Cowboys acquire two high-profile players who played the same position he did. They signed Brandon Carr to a $50.1 million contract in March and then traded up to draft Morris Claiborne with the sixth overall pick.

    “I knew what it was,” Jenkins said. “They let me know. They called me. Actually, they called me after the fact. Like I said. It’s a business. I understand that. It’s not for me to get mad.”...

    Of course he's going to say that now to cover his butt. He knows he doesn't have any leverage and this softens feelings towards him.... somewhat. Whether he said it or not, he let the situation run rampant after his "agent" said it. He's still guilty.:mad:

    Or... Maybe.... Youre just a fan with ZERO inside information and you never know exactly what goes on behind the scenes. All you do is make uneducated guesses into your mediocre responses...
