Giants agreed to terms with CB Janoris Jenkins, formerly of the Rams, on a five-year, $62.5 million contract.
The deal includes $29 million in fully guaranteed money. After turning down five years and $45 million from the Rams, Jenkins went on to hit it big as the No. 1 available corner. The $12.5 million per year places Jenkins as the league's seventh-highest paid corner in terms of annual average. The Giants better hope they're getting the 2015 version of Jenkins rather than the 2012-2014 one who got roasted routinely for big plays. Jenkins has allowed 22 touchdowns in his coverage across his four NFL seasons. The G-Men have a ton of money invested in cornerback with Jenkins and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. They now need to find safety help and some pass rushers. Mar 9 - 10:32 AM

NFL Network's Rand Getlin reports free agent CB Janoris Jenkins will sign with the Giants when the market opens late this afternoon.

The market officially opens at 4PM ET. The Giants were unable to land top free agent DE targets Charles Johnson and Mario Williams, but they'd do well to emerge with a pairing of Jenkins and someone like Olivier Vernon, whose transition tag is expected to be rescinded by the Dolphins. Jenkins, 27, will give the G-Men a high-upside bookend across from Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Fellow free agent Prince Amukamara is poised to leave the Big Apple.

FanRag Sports' Bill Williamson reports the Raiders are interested in free agent CB Janoris Jenkins.

Williamson covered the Raiders for many years over at ESPN. Jenkins' market has been surprisingly quiet during the tampering window, but with Josh Norman tagged, he is arguably the best corner available in free agency. He reportedly turned down a five-year, $45 million offer from the Rams earlier this offseason.
Mar 8 - 9:31 PM

Free agent CB Janoris Jenkins has not been franchise tagged, paving the way for him to hit the open market.

With both Jenkins and Trumaine Johnson headed for unrestricted free agency, the Rams opted to tag Johnson, who is over a year younger. Josh Norman was also tagged Tuesday, leaving Jenkins as easily the market's top corner. Jenkins recently fired his agent, and won't settle for anything less than top dollar. He won't struggle to get paid in a league that's made a habit of overpaying free agent corners.
Mar 1 - 3:47 PM

NFL Network's Rand Getlin "firmly" believes the Rams will use the franchise tag on impending free agent CB Janoris Jenkins.

Reports have suggested fellow free agent CB Trumaine Johnson is more likely to receive the tag, but Los Angeles may feel better about their chances of working out a long-term deal with Johnson before free agency. Jenkins reportedly turned down a five-year, $45 million proposal before firing his agent. With Jenkins unable to hire a new agent within five days of firing his previous one, negotiations are on hold. The only thing clear at this point is the Rams will tag one of their corners before this afternoon's deadline.
Mar 1 - 9:39 AM's Jordan Raanan heard at the Combine that free agent CB Janoris Jenkins is seeking "in the area of $12 million per year."

On Sunday, Bleacher Report reported Jenkins turned down a five-year, $45 million proposal from the Rams. Jenkins promptly changed agents and is now repped by Darrelle Revis' group. Jenkins' agent change severely decreases Los Angeles' chances of re-signing him, and greatly increases the chances Jenkins hits the market, where he'll be the top corner available should the Rams tag Trumaine Johnson as expected, and the Panthers tag Josh Norman.
Feb 29 - 10:28 AM

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports free agent CB Janoris Jenkins recently rejected a five-year, $45 million offer from the Rams.

Jenkins has since fired his agent and is switching to the same representation that negotiated Darrelle Revis' contract. By rule, Jenkins isn't allowed to hire an agent within five days of canning his previous one, so the Rams are now going to be up against the wall and will probably have to compete with other teams for Jenkins. The $9 million annually the Rams offered Jenkins would have made him one of the 13 highest-paid corners in annual average, but, of course, we have no idea what the guaranteed money was in the Rams' offer. Jenkins is coming off easily his best season and is probably seeking upwards of $10 million per year.
Feb 28 - 3:39 PM

ESPN Rams reporter Nick Wagoner does not expect the Rams to use the franchise tag this offseason.

Starting corners Janoris Jenkins and Trumaine Johnson are both headed for free agency but neither is a serious candidate for the franchise tag. The Rams would like to retain both players and it's possible they could use the transition tag to keep one of them from hitting the market. If it comes down to that, Wagoner believes the Rams are more likely to tag Jenkins than Johnson.
Feb 14 - 11:34 AM

Bucs LCB Janoris Jenkins has cleared the league's concussion protocol and is probable for Week 15 against the Buccaneers.

He practiced fully on Wednesday after being limited earlier this week. Marcus Roberson started in Jenkins' place last week against Detroit. In his contract year, Jenkins has been the Rams' best cornerback. His return isn't great news for the matchup of Mike Evans on Thursday Night Football.

Rams declared CB Janoris Jenkins, OT Andrew Donnal, C Brian Folkerts, K Zach Hocker, DE Matt Longacre, QB Sean Mannion and DE Robert Quinn inactive for Week 14 against the Lions.

Jenkins didn't practice all week after suffering a concussion against Arizona last Sunday. William Hayes (thigh), Trumaine Johnson (thigh), Case Keenum (concussion), Lance Kendricks (concussion) and Wes Welker (calf) are active.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 12:17:00 PM

Rams RCB Janoris Jenkins (concussion) is listed as doubtful for Week 14.

The Rams will get back LCB Trumaine Johnson (thigh), but will be without their best corner and their strong safety (T.J. McDonald, shoulder - I.R.). Wheels up on Calvin Johnson, and to a slightly lesser extent Matthew Stafford.
Fri, Dec 11, 2015 03:05:00 PM

Rams RCB Janoris Jenkins (concussion) has yet to resume practicing.

Jenkins is looking doubtful for Sunday's game against the Lions. Calvin Johnson will have free rein of the field.

Rams RCB Janoris Jenkins suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.

Jenkins was shaken up twice in this one, both times by his own teammates. In the midst of an impressive season, the contract-year corner is week to week.

Rams contract-year RCB Janoris Jenkins hinted he'll test the free-agent market.

The Rams have been talking extension with Jenkins for awhile and just offered him another contract during the bye week, but Jenkins didn't sound impressed by it. "When they gave me those numbers," Jenkins said. "It was something I didn’t want to hear. I ended it just like that. I’ll play it out. I’m gonna bet on myself." Supremely talented, Jenkins had a knack for giving up a ton of big plays while also creating some his first three seasons. In year four, Jenkins is currently PFF's No. 16 corner, playing strong in coverage and against the run.

Rams RCB Janoris Jenkins exited Week 2 against the Redskins with a knee injury.

He's being called questionable to return after leaving midway through the fourth quarter. Marcus Roberson is in the game opposite Trumaine Johnson.
