Report: Cowboys' Mike Jenkins Plans To Skip OTAs, Wants To Be Traded

Tuesday May 22nd, 2012

Dallas Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins plans to skip this week's organized team activities and would like to be traded, sources tell Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas.

Jenkins is currently recovering from offseason shoulder surgery and has attended only a handful of voluntary workouts. While team officials have said they'd like him to show up in Valley Ranch for workouts, which begin tomorrow, they admit his presence isn't required.

Jenkins broke up 10 passes and had one interception last year, emerging as a key player in the Cowboys' secondary despite battling knee, neck and shoulder injuries. He now appears to be the odd man out -- after drafting Morris Claiborne at No. 6 overall and signing Brandon Carr for five years and $50.1 million, the Cowboys appear poised to relegate Jenkins to third cornerback status.
