The Kansas City Chiefs are expressing interest in New York Giants veteran cornerback Janoris Jenkins who has been reportedly on the trade block as the Giants clean house for a rebuild, according to the New York Post’s Paul Schwartz.
Jenkins, 30, is in the 3rd year of a five-year, $65.5 million deal he inked with the Giants and could fetch a nice draft pick compensation for the G-Men if he is dealt before the NFL trade deadline on Tuesday.
With Kansas City in need of defensive help, kicking the tires on a deal for Jenkins makes a ton of sense.
Giants Release Connor Barwin
Barwin was valued for his veteran leadership and locker room presence, but managed only one sack during the 2018 season, despite appearing in 15 games and starting 3 of those contests.
Barwin, 32, will now his the free agent market.
Giants Not Bringing Back Connor Barwin
Barwin was due for a $250,000 roster bonus on March 7th, but he will be released prior to that kicking in.
Additionally, Barwin was set to carry a $1.865 million cap number in 2019, and releasing him will save the Giants $1.5 million and leave them with $365,000 in dead money.
Giants Not Activating Jonathan Stewart
The New York Giants decided not to activate veteran running back Jonathan Stewart prior to the deadline to do so on Thursday.
Stewart, who landed on the IR due to a foot injury back in September, will now be unavailable for the rest of the season, per league rules regarding the injured reserve list.
While Stewart, 32, was brought in via a two-year deal, it is unlikely that the Giants bring him back in 2019.
