    IRVING, Texas -- The Cowboys have 16 unrestricted free agents and one of them is a former first-round pick, cornerback Mike Jenkins.

    It seems the Cowboys were never quite happy with Jenkins the entire offseason. He didn't rehab his surgically repaired shoulder in Dallas, instead doing it in Florida. Jenkins didn't attend the voluntary workouts, although he was there for the mandatory sessions.

    It appears Jenkins will not return in 2013, leaving the Cowboys looking for a fourth corner in free agency or the draft.

    "Do I want to come back?" Jenkins asked. "I've grown attached, I've been here for five years, I've grown attached to everybody here. It's hard to just get up and leave and not want to come back. At the same time ,you want to go somewhere and have a fair opportunity and I guess go on from there."

    How was he a poor draft pick? He started from day one, with only one year of truly bad play.

    I know he was coming off an injury, but he did have his chances to make a mark on this season, and he didn't. At all.

    He played reasonably well considering his shoulder problem. That's a huge issue I doubt many here really understand well. I wish him well and I hope he considers staying at the right price. I think he will get an offer he can't refuse so I hope we can replace him.

    Don't know about that, but Nnamdi would be a decent bet to come here if he's released. He'll be a lot cheaper at this point, a good fit for our scheme, and he's got familiarity with the DC and something to prove in the NFCE.

    Good ponts. What's unclear to me is the status of his shoulder at this point. I'm hoping he stays, but as noted, at the right price.

    Exactly, if he didn't take a monumental slide after making it to the pro bowl he might have gotten the big money that would've prevented us from signing Carr. But of course, as in the case of most me first athletes, it is the teams fault.

    Two first round picks. Five years later, nothing to show for it.

    Meanwhile, we had the opportunity to draft Brandon Flowers instead of Jenkins. And Chris Johnson, Ray Rice, and Matt Forte over Felix Jones.

    I think teams expect first round draft picks to be core players and not one contract guys.

    When that doesn't happen, I think it's looked at as a disappointment.

    If Jenkins was everything the Cowboys had envisioned he would be, they would not have paid $50 million to Brandon Carr nor traded up to draft Claiborne.

    Between he and Felix Jones, the Cowboys will have nothing to show for two 1st round draft picks.

    Calvin Watkins :banghead:

    Mike Jenkins could be done with Cowboys.

    Did anybody think that he would return? He is a Free Agent that has made it clear that he thinks that he should be a starter.
