The Dallas Cowboys moved up in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft to grab LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne, which could spell the end of corner Mike Jenkins' time in Dallas, according to several reports:
Per league source, with Mo Claiborne in the fold the Cowboys are shopping Mike Jenkins.— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) April 27, 2012
ESPN Dallas is reporting that unless the Cowboys receive a decent value in exchange, they won't move Jenkins, a former first round pick in 2008 with one year remaining on his current deal. Jenkins is recovering from shoulder surgery after having one interception and 10 pass breakups in 2011.
The Cowboys signed free agent Brandon Carr as well in the offseason, and gave slot corner Orlando Scandrick a five-year contract, creating a crowded secondary for the veteran Jenkins.
