Jenkins Ready to Go?

More Jenkins news...

One of the main criticisms around Jenkins was his size and seeming lack of commitment to adequate conditioning. Well, he has heard the critics and responded.

According to this report, Jenkins has been working with a personal trainer at his old school, Maryland, rather than join the Panthers preseason workouts.

Reading between the lines, I pick up two key plots here. First, Jenkins would seem to be ready for a new start somewhere else. Second, he's definitely getting dealt since he seems to have no intention of rejoining Carolina for any preseason work.

A third round pick, while it could be valuable for the Rams, is still a good deal. A rejuvenated Jenkins has another 2 or 3 years left in the waning days of his prime.
