Giants cut CB Janoris Jenkins

The New York Giants have decided to cut cornerback Janoris Jenkins. On Wednesday, the eight year veteran used a slur in a tweet directed at a critical fan.

According to head coach Pat Shurmur, Jenkins would not admit any wrong doing in a meeting the two had on Wednesday. Shurmur went on to say the lack of apology was the reason the team decided to cut him.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter broke the news on Friday morning.

Jenkins had started every game of the 2019 season. In those 13 games, he had four interceptions and no touchdowns. He also had 54 combined tackles and 14 passes defended. The four interceptions were tied for his career high; the highest since his rookie campaign in St. Louis.

Given the Giants lack of success this season, moving on from Jenkins after an incident like this is the correct move for the franchise. He is a talented corner, but likely would not have been on the roster once the rebuild was officially complete and New York was competing for titles again. He also only had one year remaining on his contract.

Corey Ballentine and Grant Haley will fill in on the right side of the field. The two win Giants will host the three win Dolphins on Sunday, December 15.
