NFL Trade Rumors:
Jason La Canfora is reporting that the New England Patriots will sign free agent WR Michael Jenkins.
Jenkins, 30, was released Vikings a few weeks before the start of free agency. He’s drawn very little interest since then, but the Patriots seem to always be keeping tabs on available receivers during this time of the year.
Last year, he totaled 40 receptions for 449 yards and just two touchdowns with Minnesota. He does have great size, but offers almost nothing in terms of separation. It’s doubtful that he would be guaranteed a roster spot ahead of training camp.
