Arriving in Louisiana in December 2019, Janoris Jenkins has already extended his lease in the Bayou.
NFL Media announces that the cornerback, who had only one year of contract left, has been extended for two seasons and an additional $16.75 million. He is now committed for 3 years and $27 million, of which $10.2 million is guaranteed.
Jenkins will receive the full amount guaranteed in the coming year. NewOrleans.football specifies that he can be retained in 2021 for $10 million in salary and a bonus of $1.2 million. In 2022, it will be 5.25 million lows and 500,000 in bonuses if management chooses to keep it.
Clearly, Jenkins has a year to prove himself. After that, he can be cut off at no cost. So an extension is not really a guarantee of long-term employment.
