Jason Garrett, Rob Ryan and Jerry Jones have spent much of the 2012 offseason beefing up one of the weakest secondaries in the league. The Dallas Cowboys signed Brandon Carr and traded up in the 2012 NFL Draft to select Maurice Claiborne, the top rated cornerback in the draft. This has left cornerback Mike Jenkins disgruntled -- and he's disgruntled enough to skip OTAs and possibly mandatory minicamp.
Per NFL.com's Ian Rapoport:
#Cowboys CB Mike Jenkins won't be at OTAs for foreseable future, I'm told. He is interested in being traded. Was rehabbing shoulder anyway— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) May 21, 2012
Will #Cowboys CB Mike Jenkins be at mandatory mini-camp? It's not yet clear. But not at OTAs. Sounds like he wants to know about his future— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) May 21, 2012
Jenkins doesn't exactly have a lot of trade value, and Jerry Jones has said that he has no plans to deal Jenkins, despite him falling on the depth chart.
Hopefully for the Cowboys, this situation resolves itself amicably one way or another before training camp gets underway later this summer.
