Rams Trying To Put Safeguards In Rookie CB Janoris Jenkins' Contract
The contract negotiations between the St. Louis Rams and rookie cornerback Janoris Jenkins aren't getting any easier. Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports reported Wednesday that the Rams have proposed a deal that would split the second-round draft pick's signing bonus into four equal parts over the course of the contract. Most rookies receive their bonus in one lump sum, but the Rams want to protect themselves if Jenkins encounters more off-the-field trouble. Jenkins' agent, Malik Shareef, has declined to accept a contract worth $5 million, including a $3 million signing bonus. Yahoo! reports that Shareef is concerned how he will be viewed by future clients and others in his industry if he advises Jenkins to take the deal. "What the Rams have asked for is fair," a source told Yahoo! "Yeah, it's not cool if you don't get your money right away, but if he believes in himself and continues to do the right thing, he's going to get his money."
