Watkins adds that while the Lions have made an offer for Jenkins, the Cowboys “want something significant for Jenkins if they deal him.”
The Cowboys want to ensure that they’re being properly compensated, should they choose to trade Jenkins, but the fact that Jenkins is entering the final year of his contract and is coming off of a shoulder injury, makes it hard to imagine that the offers that they’re receiving are anything more than a mid-to-late round draft pick.
The Lions have been looking for help at corner for a while now, so it makes sense that they would at least check in on the availability of Jenkins, but at this point, it’s hard to imagine that he’ll be playing elsewhere next season.
Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas reports that the Cowboys are still not willing to trade CB Mike Jenkins, despite the previous report from Adam Schefter that mentioned that the Colts have made “multiple trade offers.”
This coincides with what Jason Garrett had previously said when asked about the possibility. It’s hard to fault the Cowboys for wanting to have some extra depth at position that really hurt them last season.
Schefter adds that the Colts most recent trade offer is still on the table.
Schefter has been informed by a league source that the Cowboys are actually willing to part with Jenkins for the “for the right price,” so we’ll have to see if anything comes of this in the coming days.
