Earlier today, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the Colts are in heavy pursuit of acquiring Cornerback Mike Jenkins of the Cowboys. The Cowboys said last week that they do not intend on trading Jenkins, as they say you can never have enough good corners, and they view Jenkins as such. After going out to grab Brandon Carr in free agency and moving up in the draft to select LSU’s Morris Claibourne, Jenkins felt that it was in his best interest to ask for a trade, as well as holdout of OTA’s with the team.
With the recent happenings in Dallas, Jenkins is looking to be traded
Schefter reports that the Colts have made multiple trade offers to the Dallas Cowboys in an effort to acquire disgruntled cornerback Mike Jenkins, and the last one remains on the table, according to a league source. Schefter also cites that the Cowboys have no interest in shipping Jenkins, but says for the right price, a deal can be made. He says a Colts official declined comment, yet a person connected to the team said Indianapolis has been trying to pry loose Jenkins with an offer that one source said “many teams would think is compelling.”
Jenkins is in the last year of his deal with the team, and throughout his four years he’s racked up 147 tackles as well as eight interceptions. Last year was a down-year for Jenkins with no interceptions and only 24 tackles in twelve games.
The Colts are looking to upgrade a defense that was partially responsible for a 2-14 season last year. They’ve already picked up CB Cassius Vaughn via trade with Denver in exchange for Tight End Chris Gronkowski.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, person familiar with wide receiver Hakeem Nicks’ fractured foot believes that his recovery time will be more like four to six weeks, rather than the 12 weeks that the New York Giants stated.

He's lost his job, he won't get much starting time, they are rumours of being traded, and the team isn't happy with him.
The Colts have supposedly offered the Cowboys several...
