Janoris Jenkins will cause trouble in the NFL off the field. Guaranteed.
Janoris Jenkins' talent is undeniable. He is a rare talent at the cornerback position and has the ability to become one of the top corners in the NFL.
That is, if he stays out of trouble, which doesn't seem likely.
Jenkins has created a laundry list of issues due to his poor decision-making. He has been arrested for fighting and resisting arrest, during which the police were forced to use a taser on Jenkins to subdue him.
Add that on top of another fight he was involved in and two marijuana related charges, and you have Jenkins' dismissal from the Florida Gators.
Jenkins is also the father of four children. From four different mothers.
This was all pre-combine knowledge. Post-combine, just a few days ago, it was reported Jenkins was looking for the services of a new agent. Not because he fired his agent, which happens all the time, but because his agent fired him.
According to NBC Sports via Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel, Jenkins is in the market for a new agent after being fired by his. Bianchi added, “You’ve got to be pretty shady for agent to fire player.”.
The big question is this: When you have someone with such a colorful, problematic history, do you think handing him a boatload of cash is going to reduce his risk of doing something dumb? Didn't think so.
