A lot of talk coming out of Dallasthe past week has centered around Mike Jenkins, currently known as the “odd man out” and current head coach, Jason Garrett has stated the Cowboys have no interest in trading Mike Jenkins. But is that a good call?
On the one hand, Mike Jenkins is in his “contract year” so he needs to do something to prove himself. On the other hand, do we really need another diva-like player who is disgruntled left on the team?
For depth purposes and possible injuries happening to the secondary, Mike Jenkins would be needed to fill in that role as a veteran player. He is a fairly decent cornerback but has always played with a weaker partner in the secondary. Now with Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne we could see the potential that we have had glimpses of out of Jenkins.
But, on the other hand, a disgruntled player already staying out of OTA’s, albeit voluntary, is showing he isn’t a team player. Dallas has had a history with disgruntled non-team players (i.e. Terrell Owens) and that did not turn out well for Dallas.
The best move for Dallas would be to trade Mike Jenkins so he doesn’t become a “cancer” to the secondary this year. It’s best for the team to have hungry, win driven, and players that want to be here and be a team player.
On a side note, on behalf of The Landry Hat, have a Safe & Happy Memorial Day weekend!
