Mike Jenkins' agent seeks extension
The team hasn't exchanged financial numbers yet with Rosenhaus, but there is hope Jenkins can continue to play with the Cowboys long-term.
Update: Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Tuesday afternoon the team values Jenkins "we like him," but you can't pay everybody, at least right now.
Last season, Jenkins shared the team lead in pass breakups (10) and finished with just one interception.
Jenkins played the bulk of the season with neck, knee and shoulder injuries. Jenkins' shoulder was so bad he couldn't lift his arm above his head and he underwent offseason surgery.
Rosenhaus said Jenkins should be ready in time for the start of training camp in late July.
Jenkins, who is in the final year of his contract, will make a base salary of $1.052 million this season.
During training camp last year, the Cowboys gave nickle corner Orlando Scandrick a five-year, $27 million contract extension with $10 million guaranteed. This offseason, the Cowboys signed cornerback Brandon Carr to a five-year $50.1 million deal.
