NFL Breaking News: Janoris Jenkins to sign with the NY Giants

It looks like the NY Giants are intending to bolster their defensive strength for next season, having made a play for Free Agent Cornerback


It looks like the NY Giants are intending to bolster their defensive strength for next season, having made a play for Free Agent Cornerback Janoris Jenkins. Adding strength in the second level of the defence is going to be important for the Giants in 2016, and Jenkins could be a major factor in that during the next season. The Ex Rams player was released to free agency after the Rams opted to Franchise Trumain Johnson to the tune of $14 million, effectively pricing one of their top performing Corners out of the competition. Having been drafted by the Rams in the 2nd round of the 2012 draft by the Rams, Jenkins was slotted directly into the starting squad, and in the 4 years since, has scored six touchdowns – the most scored by any Defensive player in a 4 year period, ever. Jenkins had a major impact on the Rams secondary posting 64 tackles, 3 interceptions, and a forced fumble over 15 games. Having started 60 games over the 4 seasons, he was a definite first unit player, and his stats reinforce his value to the Rams. With this move confirmed, it seems that the Giants are opening their Free agent shopping season with some major calls on the defence front. Grabbing up a player that the Rams simply couldn’t afford to keep is a definite sign of intent, and Jenkins will be glad that his skill has been recognised so quickly, especially after the Rams elected not to offer him a new contract mid 2015 season, as he had hoped. With the Free agent season just starting to warm up, we can expect some major moves over the next few days, but with this transaction following news that Jason Pierre-Paul will also be returning to Big Blue, the Giants are off to a good start in improving their defense.
