After the Dallas Cowboys traded up to land LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne, Mike Jenkins’ future with the team is a mite murky--and writers around town are already kicking around the possibility that Jenkins might be dealt.
ESPN Dallas for one, reports today that the team is actively trying to trade Jenkins, per an unnamed league source.
Jenkins is coming off shoulder surgery and entering the final year of his contract. Even before drafting Claiborne on Thursday, Dallas signed CB Brandon Carr to a five-year deal worth around $50 million. The team locked up Orlando Scandrick last offseason with a five-year deal.
All this combined with the fact that Jenkins has spent the past year struggling injuries would seem to indicate that the USF product’s position within the organization is somewhat precarious, even though Jenkins has shown flashes of promise in the past, even earning a Pro Bowl nod in 2009.
