No one is quite sure what Dallas Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins’ future holds. The Cowboys have clearly stated that they aren’t going to trade him. Jenkins’ agent has clearly stated that he wants to be traded. It’s a sticky situation for the star DB, who recorded 19 defended passes and 49 tackles in his second NFL season.
It is clear why Jenkins is upset though, the Cowboys picked up Morris Claiborne and Brandon Carr this offseason. However, this move was not made because they were looking to replace Jenkins, it was because they were looking to create competition in their secondary. With Jenkins missing OTAs, that competition will not be there for the preseason.
Right now it seems like the best thing for Dallas to do is sit, wait and hope Jenkins returns. If they trade him away, they ensure the loss of one of the best defenders on their team.
