Janoris Jenkins thanks Giants organization, says...


The New York Giants pulled the plug on veteran cornerback Janoris Jenkins on Friday, waiving him after he used a derogatory term during a Twitter argument with a fan on Wednesday.

Although Jenkins twice apologized, they were deemed disingenuous and the outrage mob immediately demanded the Giants set things right by sending Jenkins out of town. They got their wish.

“This was an organizational decision,” head coach Pat Shurmur said. “From ownership to management to our football operations, we felt it was in the best interests of the franchise and the player. Obviously, what happened this week, and the refusal to acknowledge the inappropriate and offensive language, was the determining factor.”

After first learning of his release, Jenkins seemed relieved to get away from the toxic environment.

With some time to sit and think on it, Jackrabbit went back to Twitter to thank the Giants organization and wish both his teammates and fans well.

Because Jenkins was waived/injured, it’s possible this story is not over quite yet. Assuming the cornerback clears waivers, he will temporarily revert to injured reserve.

In the event that happens, it’s likely the Giants and Jenkins would then agree to an injury settlement leading to his outright release. And considering his ankle injury is considered minor, there’s a strong chance he signs elsewhere and plays again this season — possibly even with a playoff team.
