Jenkins, 32, is a nine-year veteran who has spent time with the Saints, Giants and Rams in his career. The last season and a half, Jenkins has spent with the Saints. With the team he had four interceptions and 14 passes defended.
While the move will generate over $7.2 million in dead cap space, the Saints save about $7.5 million against the cap with the move. They are still a projected $25.5 million over the salary cap according to Over the Cap.
The man nicknamed “Jackrabbit” has 26 interceptions and 118 passes defended in his career.
