The Cowboys know you can’t have enough corners, but they’re still trying to trade CB Mike Jenkins

The Cowboys spent all last night saying that even with the trade up in the draft to snag LSU CB Morris Claiborne, they hadn’t made a decision on Mike Jenkins. Vice President Stephen Jones said that while no decision had been made, “Very rarely do you see people get through the season using three corners.” In the next room, though, owner Jerry Jones wouldn’t guarantee that Jenkins would be on the roster in training camp. And with good reason. I’m told this morning that the Cowboys are shopping Jenkins, who has one more year on a contract that should pay the former first-rounder $1 million. Both Joneses lamented losing a second-round pick in the Claiborne deal, and perhaps they can […]

Fan reaction mixed over Jets’ first-round pick

With the 16th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Jets selected North Carolina DE Quinton Coples, and the reaction was mixed from some 3,500 Jets fans on hand at MetLife Stadium. While some cheered, others booed, with hopes of Melvin Ingram heading to New York shattered. It’s been chaos and excitement surrounding the draft, for all but one, who says his focus is elsewhere.

So … the Cowboys are pretty sure they fleeced the Rams to grab CB Morris Claiborne …

The Cowboys made one of the memorable trades of the first round, sending their 14th pick and a second-rounder to the Rams for the right to select No. 6 overall. It was a bold move, and one that left them with an elite player at a key position — LSU CB Morris Claiborne.

Five things that really, probably, maybe will happen in the 2012 NFL Draft…

More time to kill, more time to kill… Well, this is getting closer. And as the kickoff clock to the NFL Draft ticks and ticks away, the focus is coming clearer. Yeah, this could be a crazy night. The rookie wage scale and some differing opinions on the strength of this class will lead to a slightly wacky experience. As you might expect, I have some predictions… Here are five things that could, maybe, possible, probably happen: 1. The Dolphins will take QB Ryan Tannehill — This has been smokescreen central. Loved it when personnel guys with the Jaguars publicly said everyone knew the Dolphins were picking the Texas A&M QB. Um, not quite. Even Tannehill hasn’t been told the Dolphins […]
