Ten Players the Buccaneers Must Explore in Free Agency
Jenkins may have spent four years with the Rams, but he still made quite the impact for himself. He is as fast as they come, with five interceptions returned for TDs over his first four seasons. Jenkins is coming off of three interceptions in 2015, and a career-high 15 passes defended. He would have blown all Tampa Bay corners away, with a PFF grade of 6.7 for the season.
Jenkins is coming off of a year making only $1.2 million in salary. Here is a guy that could come in to Tampa for a modest raise and immediate upgrade the Bucs at corner. To take the next step, even with a new defense, the Bucs must be able to stop the pass, not just the run. Brining in a guy like Jenkins would be a big step in helping this team get to that next step.
