New York Giants sign CB Janoris Jenkins to five-year deal
Wednesday March 9th, 2016

Free-agent cornerback Janoris Jenkins has signed with the Giants, the team announced Thursday. The deal is for five-years and $62.5 million, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports

The deal will include around $30 million in guaranteed salary, reports Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports. That would give Jenkins the second-highest amount of total guarantees behind just Darrelle Revis of the New York Jets.

Jenkins has spent all four of his NFL seasons with the Rams since being selected in the second round of the 2012 draft. He has played in 60 games (58 starts), racking up 229 solo tackles, 10 interceptions and six defensive touchdowns.

The 27-year-old played was among the top corners in the league in 2015, picking off three passes and forcing a fumble, to go along with 64 total tackles.
