Here’s JJT on with Ben and Skin to talk about Mike Jenkins skipping OTA’s to send the Cowboys a message…
Jenkins got to the Pro Bowl in 2009 because he was the 238th alternate. There were a number of players who opted out of that game.
Terence Newman was in that Pro Bowl as well. Should they have kept him too based on what he did three years ago? Of course not. Jenkins was ok last season, but he wasn’t so good or the Cowboys wouldn’t have drafted Mo Claiborne. They would not have locked up a mediocre Orlando Scandrick if they thought Jenkins is a great CB.
Jenkins should be with his teammates today.
Agreed. If Jenkins had real swagger he would already know he was the #3 CB. He sould be telling himself I am going to be on the field a ton of the time along with Carr and Claiborne. Instead he’s already resigned the fact that Scandrick is the Nickel CB. And it’s been proven by DeMarco Murray taking the starting ob from Felix that Garrett will not determine jobs by draft status or contract numbers.
