Cowboys CB Mike Jenkins Wants To Go Somewhere Where He'll Get A Fair Opportunity
Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins, who lost his starting job this season, is one of Dallas’ 15 unrestricted free agents this off-season who might not be re-signed.
Jenkins, a 2008 first-round pick, was the Cowboys’ best cornerback in 2011 but was sent to the bench when Dallas signed free agent cornerback Brandon Carr and traded up to draft cornerback Morris Claiborne sixth overall last off-season. Jenkins also underwent reconstructive right shoulder surgery last off-season that kept him from practicing with the Cowboys.
As Jenkins was leaving Valley Ranch on Monday, he was asked if he wants to return to the Cowboys or seek a starting job elsewhere around the league.
“Uh, do I want to come back? I’ve been here for five years and I’ve grown attached to everybody here,” Jenkins said. “It’s hard to just get up and leave and not want to come back, but at the same time you want to go somewhere where you have a fair opportunity and I guess you just go from there.”
