Maybe Mike Jenkins didn't directly ask the Cowboys to trade him, but it's possible that at some point his agent did. Jenkins says he doesn't know.
Mike Jenkins says he didn't ask for a trade. Says he didn't know if his agent did. If he got traded? "I'd have to go on" ok then— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) July 30, 2012
The idea of trading Jenkins has made sense for a while now, since the Cowboys signed Brandon Carr to a big deal in the offseason and traded up to draft Morris Claiborne as well. So eventually an injured and seemingly disgruntled Jenkins supposedly demanded to be traded. Makes sense for both parties, but the Cowboys shut down any serious trade rumors.
For Dallas, hopefully this isn't a distraction going into the season.
