The oft-troubled North Alabama cornerback can’t seem to stay out of the negative news category.
Jenkins is arguably one of the most talented corners in the draft but his off-the-field indiscretions may leave him on the outside looking in on April 26th. Jenkins indiscretions include multiple off-the-field run-ins with the law, his dismissal from Florida, and enough baby mama drama to make Antonio Cromartie cringe. And now his latest red-flag.
Ben Dogra confirmed @CAA_Football no longer reps CB Janoris Jenkins. “We wish him well, but this is in the best interest of all parties.”

Earlier this week it was reported that Jenkins was axing his agent CAA’s Ben Dogra. The news came on the heels of former high school teammate Dwight Bentley leaving his representation for Malik Shareef. Jenkins would follow suit and sign with Shareef. Players frequently change agents, usually not wise this close to the draft but harmless on the surface.
It didn’t end there with Jenkins and the agent drama. Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel opined that Jenkins was fired by his agent.

Bianchi’s report hasn’t been confirmed by the player or either agent involved but could serve as another major point of contention with NFL teams looking to take the talented but troubled corner.
