So far in the off-season, the Giants have continued to find ways to improve their defense. First, by re-signing Jason Pierre-Paul to a one-year deal and now by landing one of the better corners in the open market. Well, Janoris Jenkins is heading to New York after he agreed to the team on a five-year deal worth $62.5 mil, which comes out at $12.5 mil a year. He is guaranteed $29 mil in this deal, per Paul Schwartz of the New York Post. The overall deal was reported by Adam Schefter.
Next, the 27-year-old corner is seems excited to play alongside Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Now, the corner group also includes Leon McFadden, Bennett Jackson, Trevin Wade, and Tramain Jacobs. This is not a bad group of corners, but expect the Giants to draft a corner to solidify this group entering the season. Lastly, Jenkins is a playmaker and will take this defense to the next level.
Finally, Jenkins had a good start to his career with the Rams, but is ready to take that next level as the contract shows. Jenkins started as a cornerback in St. Louis when he first got there, picking up a total of 10 career interceptions (ball hawk), including five returned for touchdowns. Now, last year he made a total of 64 tackles, 3 interceptions, 1 forced fumble, and he did has 16 pass deflections.
