Cowboys Not Listening To Mike Jenkins Trade Offers

While several NFL teams are reportedly interested in bringing in disgruntled Dallas Cowboys CB Mike Jenkins, the team isn't interested in dealing him:

The team has invested a lot of money in Brandon Carr, Morris Claiborne and Orlando Scandrick over the last two seasons, but they aren't ready to cut the cords with their former first-round pick just yet.

Not only was CB depth a huge problem for the team last year, but trading Jenkins, who has played at a Pro Bowl level at times in Dallas, would be selling extremely low.

Jenkins, who will be a free agent next season, would obviously rather not be a nickel or dime CB headed into his first opportunity to get a big contract in the NFL. But if he pouts this season, he'll only sink his value even further, so the Cowboys are holding all the cards in this situation.
