what have we seen out of Jenkins this year to warrant re-signing him? has his value gone up or down?
He will be a starter on another team.
Jenkins would not resign here unless we made him the highest paid CB in the league.
Last I heard he wanted between 10-15 million a year. :lmao:
I'm sure we'd love to re-sign him but he's going to seek a big contract and we will move on.
No chance he stays. Soft player with an attitude problem. Buh bye....one more wasted first round draft pick.....you guys see a trend here?!?
does he warrant a big contract? is more the question, not saying we have to give it to him.
Who knows? I am sure he will get one bigger than we would offer.
no! we need to draft another young cb in middle rounds to replace him. claiborne and carr make to much money to invest in a slot corner.
I imagine the Cowboys will offer to match any reasonable offer he receives. And Jenkins will decide to go elsewhere for the same amount of money. Just like with TE Bennett.
I really don't think Jenkins wants to be in Dallas at all. I'm guessing he will be visiting Miami, Jax and TB as soon as FA begins. He will play decent but be nothing special.
It would be hard to make a case for resigning him with the type of contract he thinks he's deserving of. He's also made of glass, just can't stay on the field too many injuries.
Seems Dallas has done everything in their power to drop his stock. Good business but some team will overpay and he doesn't strike me as the kinda player that is gonna give it his all once he gets his deal.
We have a lot of money invested in our CBs, but I like the our line up better without Jenkins in there. Mo, Carr and OScan is a great group of dudes. I'm really so happy to watch these guys. I can't remember any time cept for the 90s when we had a better group of guys than this.
In my opinion, no. He does not warrant the kind of contract he wants. I think he warrants a nice contract only because of the fact that he can cover when healthy and he does play a premium position in the NFL. For that he will get a nice contract but not a premium one IMO. He doesn't tackle well and he doesn't stay healthy. He has not shown the ability to be a guy who works hard to improve in the off season and he has also not shown that he is a team guy.
I think the Cowboys will let him test the market and see what he brings. If the price is too steep, I think they will just let him walk. However, it really depends on a couple of things IMO. What do they think of Spencer and how badly do we want to keep him. What will Romo sign for and lastly, how much do we really like Jenkins? We could think about using a "none-exclusive" franchise tag on Jenkins which, as I understand it, consists of an average of the top 5 salaries at the players position over the last 5 years or 120% of the players current salary, which ever is greater. If a team then offers more, the Cowboys could elect to either match and keep or refuse to match, in which case, we would be entitled to two 1st Rd picks as compensation. Would depend on what the number of the top 5 salaries over the past 5 years works out to be and the other issues mentioned earlier.
I've seen him make 1 play all season.
so hell no don't resign him. We need play makers, and currently sean lee is the only game changing playmaker
No..why keep pumping money into this roster?
Hatcher found no takers when he hit the market so who knows. He might come back for one more year if nobody out there bites. I doubt he gets too much money since he's hardly played and hasnt shut too many guys in the few chances he's gotten so far. If I was Jerry and this happened where he could return rather cheaply I'd move Carr to FS and let Jenkins start at CB. Now if we can find an adequate solution at FS in the offseason then it's bye bye Jenkins.
Sometimes that's an indication that a corner is doing his job.
Jenkins is a very good pure cover corner. But if a guy is already making 'business decisions' at this stage his career, doubt he's gonna give you much after you make him a very rich man.
great post... spot on
