The Jets released Kris Jenkins earlier in the offseason and the speculation has been that he would resign with the team at a reduced salary later in the offseason.
After the comments Jenkins made to NY Metro, those odds appear to be shrinking.
“I’d be interested if [the Jets] had grass on the stadium field but right now, that’s the big thing and they don’t,” Jenkins told Metro yesterday.
… “[FieldTurf], it ain’t my friend. Just as far as my health is concerned, I need to think about that and how my body can and will respond,” Jenkins said. “New York would be a major possibility, we’ll have to see, but at this point in time, I want to take care of me, too.”
This news now makes defensive line a more pressing need for the Jets. Do they have to take Phil Taylor if he’sthere at #30 now?
I don’t know about have to, but it certainly makes a lot of sense.
What do you guys think? Thing there’s any chance Jenkins will still come back? Do you like Taylor as his replacement?
