Found October 29, 2012 on The Bay Cave:

About half way through the 2012 season, we know where the Buccaneers rank in pass defense. If you don’t, they are 31st. That is second to last in the league in defending the pass. With the league postponing the NFL trade deadline until Thursday afternoon and the possibility of being without another cornerback, will Tampa Bay make a move to boost their secondary? It is being reported by ESPNDallas.com’s Todd Archer that the Dallas Cowboys could trade away fifth-year cornerback Mike Jenkins. Says Archer: He is also in the last year of his contract and is playing in a backup role so far. Contending teams need cornerbacks and Jenkins might be able to bring some in return, but his contractual future makes a trade a little more difficult. A team would want to know they are not just renting Jenkins for a half season if they are to give up a viable draft pick (and by that I’m thinking fourth rounder). Jenkins is no stranger to the bay area. He attended the University of South Florida where he became one of the top corners sought after in the 2008 NFL Draft where the Cowboys drafted him with the 25th pick in the first round. He was selected to the 2009 Pro Bowl after recording five interceptions that season. So whether the Bucs are viewed as a contending team or not, help at corner is certainly needed. Cornerback Eric Wright reportedly faces a four-game suspension for the use of Adderall, which is the same reason cornerback Aqib Talib was suspended three weeks ago. A fourth round pick on a proven cornerback would seem to be a fair deal. General Manager Mark Dominik has made trades involving draft picks before as he did when he traded a second round pick to Cleveland for tight end Kellen Winslow, Jr in 2009. But for now, it’s all speculation. (Photo Credit: US Presswire) The post Could the Bucs make a trade for Cowboys’ Jenkins? appeared first on The Bay Cave.
