And then there were none. The St. Louis Rams have reportedly agreed to terms with cornerbacks Janoris Jenkins and Trumaine Johnson, the final two of the team’s draft picks who were still unsigned.
Jenkins will get just over $5 million dollars over four years. Of that total, $3.1 million is guaranteed. Those numbers are the highest of any second-round pick in this year’s draft. The terms of the Johnson deal have yet to be released.
I’m glad these deals are taken care of, but I have to say that I’m a little surprised at how big the numbers are with Jenkins. We have talked quite a bit about the rocky negotiations, but it looks to me that Jenkins probably got what he wanted. Now, we just have to hope he settles himself down and lives up to his talent on the field.
