Janoris Jenkins claimed by New Orleans

Ex-Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins has been claimed by the New Orleans Saints. He was released by New York on Friday after using a slur on Twitter. The slur was directed at a fan critical of his play.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter broke the news via Twitter on Monday afternoon.

Jenkins was responsible for 54 tackles and four interceptions in his 13 games during the 2019 season. The four interceptions are tied for his career high.

The Saints need Jenkins’ production, as they are ranked 20th against the pass in yards per game. They are tied for 14th in interceptions and 16th in points allowed per game. The problem is the conversation that will be surrounding his signing.

New York cut him after he refused to apologize for the incident. After a meeting with head coach with Pat Shurmur, the team and the organization made the decision to move on. The Giants are not in contention for the playoffs, so it was likely an easy decision to make.

The Saints play the Indianapolis Colts on Monday Night Football in Week 15 in a rematch of Super Bowl 44, which marked the Saints first and only Super Bowl victory.
