Janoris Jenkins not a fan of open-air proposal

1/11/2015

EARTH CITY, Mo. -- As a native of Pahokee, Florida, it stands to reason that St. Louis Rams cornerback Janoris Jenkins isn't a fan of playing football in the cold.

Jenkins played his high school ball at Pahokee High and chose the University of Florida for college ball. Even after transferring, Jenkins went to North Alabama. Suffice to say, Jenkins doesn't like the idea of playing outside unless it's in a warm-weather climate.

So while nearly the entire Rams organization was silent on social media during the reveal of the St. Louis stadium plan on Friday, Jenkins had no problem voicing his thoughts on the open-air proposal.

As you'd expect, those tweets weren't received too kindly by St. Louis fans or those in the Rams organization. Rams players received a text during the proceedings asking them not to tweet about the stadium proposal or matters relating to it.

Of course, Jenkins also clearly didn't realize that a new open-air stadium in St. Louis has nothing to do with what happens in 2015. Or 2016. Or any year between now and 2020, when the St. Louis stadium proposal is expected to be finished.

Jenkins is actually scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent after next season, so if he's truly upset about the idea of playing outdoors in a cold-weather city, he'll be able to factor that in to his decision.
