It’s been a pretty tough day so far as the Los Angeles Rams will be without some key players from last season.
Early Wednesday morning Janoris Jenkins did not waste anytime for him to find a new team. Adam Schefter reported that the Rams cornerback is poised to join the New York Giants. Jenkins basically laughed at the Rams offer of $9 million a year, fired his free agent and got the money he wanted. Jenkins deal with the Giants is 5 years, $62.5 million including $29 million guaranteed in the first two years. $40 million total in first three years in N.Y.
Jenkins new agent also works with cornerback Darrelle Revis, who he also helped land the big bucks. Jenkins is now the second highest paid cornerback in the National Football League. This would be just the first of the Rams defense to fall in free agency.
The Los Angeles Rams top priority in the off-season was to bring back the secondary, well another one has just left along with Jenkins. Safety Rodney McLeod will also be leaving the Rams and found himself a new home with the Eagles per Schefter.
Another huge blow to the team, as the Los Angeles Rams defense has now lost 36 % of their starting defense of last season. Chris Long, James Laurinaitis, Janoris Jenkins, and now Rodney McLeod. These top Rams are chasing after the money, who knows if the Rams are even giving them an offer.
