Jackrabbit Jenkins ranked among the best-covered CBs in the press in 2021
Cornerback Jackrabbit Jenkins is done with the Tennessee Titans after the team released him earlier this offseason after his only year in Nashville.
Jenkins’ tenure on the Titans got off to a bad start, and while he wasn’t terribly great otherwise, he posted respectable numbers in overall coverage. But Jenkins was particularly good at one thing: media coverage.
According to Conor McQuiston of Pro Football Focus, Jenkins was the third best cornerback in media coverage in 2021.
Jenkins is currently not with an NFL team, and the market is unclear for the 33-year-old, who has disappointed in 2021 in the eyes of some Titans writers. However, even with his future uncertain after a turbulent season, Jenkins still managed to be one of the most impressive cornerbacks in league media coverage with significant volume.
Of the 10 cornerbacks in the standings, Jenkins had the best PFF rating of the bunch in media coverage (90.3) and was tied for second-fewest yards allowed with 17. He also stopped five of the 10 passes thrown his way .
Jenkins was a victim of the Titans’ cap, which was fully expected, with the team looking to move up to 2021 first-round pick Caleb Farley in 2022.
Jenkins, 33, remains a free agent nearly a month out from training camps starting in late July, but it’s hard to imagine he’ll be homeless much longer, assuming he plans to play this season. coming.
