Cowboys Not Interested In Trading Mike Jenkins

Dallas Cowboys defensive back Mike Jenkins has decided to sit out OTA's and has reportedly asked for the Cowboys to trade him. Jenkins wants out due to the Cowboys signing Brandon Carr and acquired Maurice Claiborne in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Head coach Jason Garrett has come out to say that the Cowboys are not attempting to trade Jenkins:

"He's making a business decision not to be here. But we're not going to trade him. We like Mike Jenkins. We feel like he can be a part of our team. We've got to get him healthy. We've got to get him back on the field."

With the Cowboys secondary lacking this past season it does not seem to be in the best interest of the Cowboys to trade Jenkins who started last season.
