Number Two: Janoris Jenkins

Janoris Jenkins was acquired by the New Orleans Saints in week 16 of last season and played in two regular-season games as well as one playoff game for the team last year.

Jenkins, 31, is looking to continue his dominance in the NFL which he has done since he entered the league back in 2012.

Jenkins has been considered one of the NFL’s best cornerbacks since he entered the league, and rightfully so when you take a look at his career stats.

In eight seasons, Jenkins has tallied 467 tackles, 12 tackles for a loss, two sacks, six forced fumbles, two fumbles recovered, 106 passes defended, 23 interceptions, and eight defensive touchdowns.

Jenkins’ stats are ridiculous and last season he proved he can still ball out even at age 31 as he recorded 61 tackles, 16 passes defended, and five interceptions. Jenkins is a lock to make the final roster and start opposite Marshon Lattimore in 2020.
