Jerry jones said he is not listening to offers for mike jenkins. He said he means more to the cowboys— Clarence Hill (@clarencehilljr) May 30, 2012
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.
