Dallas Cowboys Free Agency: Mike Jenkins Wants A Contract Extension

According to ESPN Dallas, Drew Rosenhaus, the agent for Dallas Cowboys CB Mike Jenkins, has approached the team looking for an extension.

Jenkins is in the final year of the contract he signed as a first-round pick out of South Florida in 2008.

He's been extremely inconsistent in his time in Dallas, alternating a Pro Bowl season in 2009 before becoming one of the NFL's lowest-rated CB's in 2010.

In an interview with Calvin Watkins, Jason Garrett said that "the team values Jenkins, but you can't pay everybody, at least right now."

Dallas has sunk a lot of money into the defensive backfield over the last year, with newly acquired free agent CB Brandon Carr receiving nearly $50 million and nickel back Orlando Scandrick, who was drafted the same year as Jenkins, receiving a $27 million extension before last season.

If the Cowboys end up taking a CB in one of the first few rounds of the 2012 Draft, it's likely the end of the road for Jenkins in Dallas, as it wouldn't be feasible to invest a lot of money in four different CB's.
