The Oakland Raiders are expected to make a push for free agent corner back Janoris Jenkins. The 27-year-old is expected to cash in during free agency.
Jenkins is expected to get a contract worth $13-to-14 million per year. That’s a lot for a guy, who offers a high-risk, high-reward at the position.
Either way, the Raiders are expected to go after him as they look to upgrade their corner position. Last season, David Amerson and T.J. Carrie were the team’s corners.
Emerson, who was claimed off waivers from the Washington Redskins in Sept. is a free agent. Carrie’s signed through 2017 and could move to safety at Charles Woodson’s position if they signed two corners.
He spent the past four-years with the St. Louis Rams, before the Rams elected to make him a free agent. They couldn’t pay Jenkins and Trumaine Johnson, who they franchise tagged.
This season, he played in 15 games and had 64 tackles. He had a forced fumble with three interceptions.
He also had a punt return for five-yards this past season.
In 60 career games, he has 257 combined tackles with a sack and three forced fumbles. He also has two fumble recoveries and 10 interceptions with five being returned for touchdowns.
With Jenkins expected to leave, the team is expected to move E.J. Gaines into the right corner position.
