According to Getlin, Jenkins and his representatives would like to get a deal done before the start of the regular season, and there’s reportedly optimism that this could happen.
However, in the event that two parities are unable to work out an agreement, Getlin adds that Jenkins will play out the season and re-visit an extension in January.
Jenkins, 26, is a former second-round pick of the Rams back in 2012. He has one year remaining on his four-year, $4.99 million rookie contract and stands to make $660,000 for the 2015 season.
In 2014, Jenkins appeared in 14 games and recorded 59 tackles, two interceptions returned for touchdowns, two forced fumbles and five pass defenses.
