Raiders sign CB Mike Jenkins to one-year deal
- Updated: April 9, 2013
The Raiders took another step in their rebuilding process by signing Jenkins, a former first-round pick of the Cowboys in the 2008 NFL Draft. A Pro Bowl selection in 2009, this one-year contract is a low-risk move for a player who saw his playing time diminish last season behind Morris Claiborne and Brandon Carr. According to Rapoport, he passed up on a potential multi-year deal in order to prove himself and possibly earn a bigger contract next offseason.
Jenkins, 28, has started 48 games and has eight interceptions in his career. Now in the Raiders secondary alongside recent signing Tracy Porter, their revamped secondary looks more formidable than it was last season. Just a couple years removed from a stellar season with Dallas, Jenkins could shine bright amongst a Raiders defense seeking star power and leadership.
