Corner-back Janoris Jenkins resigns with Saints. The New Orleans Saints and Mickey Loomis are not necessarily making all the big blockbuster moves that other teams are this off season. What the Saints are doing is making all the right moves by getting great players with contracts that make sense.
Jenkins was already with the New Orleans Saints. As a result, this is not a new a addition to the team. It is a restructure of a contract. To sum up the deal, Mickey Loomis & Jenkins signed a deal making $9 mil of his base pay into a signing bonus. Therefore, this creates a $7.2 million in cap space per Field Yates.
Jenkins was drafted by the STL Rams in 2012, He was a mid second round pick. He had been a New York Giant from 2016 to 2019 before being waived by the Giants. He was quickly claimed by the Saints in December. With the Giants in 2019, Jenkins managed 4 interceptions and 50 solo tackles. He also had one interception with the Saints after being thrown into the fire in week 17.
Janoris Jenkins resigns with Saints
Jenkins is capable of following the opponent’s best receiver. The Saints most likely won’t push him to do that. Jenkins is 31 years old, but he is still effective in man and zone coverage.
The way the Saints off season is going gives them the opportunity to go best player available in this year’s draft.
