CB Mike Jenkins Seeking An Extension

Coming off shoulder surgery, Jenkins is entering the final year of his contract



    Entering the final season of his contract, cornerback Mike Jenkins and his agent Drew Rosenhaus have approached the Dallas Cowboys about an extension, but it doesn’t seem that the team--who gave Brandon Carr a five-year $50 million deal just two weeks ago--are in any hurry to get a deal done.

    Jenkins, coming off an injury-plagued 2011 in which he recorded 24 tackles, eight pass deflections and an interception, is set to make around $1.5 million in 2012.

    Head coach Jason Garrett made clear recently that, though the team is in no rush, there is plenty of interest around Valley Ranch in keeping the South Florida product, and former Pro Bowler, in blue and silver.

    "We absolutely like him,'' Garrett said, per the Dallas Morning News. "He's coming off the injury. We have to see.

    “You can't do everybody all at once. There are certain ways you have to manage the salary cap. We were active in free agency. We have to go through the process with these guys. At some point, you hope to address some of the other guys we have on our team who we like and want to be around for a long time.”
