Former Los Angeles Rams cornerback Janoris Jenkins has reportedly agreed to a multi-year deal with the New York Giants. The agreement is a five-year, $62.5 million contract, with $29 million guaranteed and $40 million over the first three years, according to NFL beat writer Conor Orr.
This comes a week after it was reported that Jenkins declined a five-year, $45 million offer from the Rams. Jenkins wasn’t afraid to let the world know about how he felt about the Rams’ offer. He took to Twitter explaining as much, and fired his agent in the process.
The Rams had the daunting task of resigning their top two corners this offseason, and ultimately decided that Trumaine Johnson was their top priority and gave him the franchise tag.
The Rams drafted Jenkins 39th overall in the 2012 NFL Draft. He earned 48 pass deflections, 10 interceptions and seven defensive touchdowns during his four-year stint with the Rams.
