Janoris Jenkins rejects 5-year $45 million offer from Rams

Unless the Los Angeles Rams pony up, they may have to make the move out west without cornerback Janoris Jenkins. According to Bleacher Report’s Jason Cole, Jenkins recently rejected a five-year $45 million extension from the team that drafted him back in 2012.

Jenkins is coming of one of the best seasons of his four-year career, with three interceptions and 64 tackles. He recently changed agents as well in hiring Darrell Revis’ agent, who got his client a five-year $70 million deal.

Now Jenkins will be hitting the open market, with many teams surely figuring to compete for his services. The $9 million salary would have easily put Jenkins among the top 13 highest-paid cornerbacks in the league. He likely is seeking a deal with significantly more than $10 million in salary a year.

No word yet on how much of the Rams’ $45 million was guaranteed, nor what other teams he may be talking to besides the Rams, but stay tuned to Campus Sports for more updates!
