Talented cornerback. Multiple off-the-field issues. Drafted by Jeff Fisher. The comparisons between Janoris Jenkins and Pacman Jones are evident. But because of one glaring difference, Jenkins doesn’t buy the link to the notoriously oft-troubled Jones.
The Rams’ second-round pick jumped on SiriusXM radio with host Adam Schein on Friday and rejected the Pacman comparison when he was asked about it. His explanation was truly amusing:
Jenkins on Pac Man comparison, “I never shot no one in a strip club.” This is true.

I don’t think Pacman ever gave us a quote quite like that. There’s another difference Jenkins can add to the board.

According to Michael Silver of Yahoo! sports, Rams head coach Jeff Fisher and a small cluster of his staff traveled covertly to Boone, North Carolina last Friday to get a look at Appalachian State wide receiver Brian Quick. After Quick’s very impressive half hour workout, the Rams knew they wanted him.
Ray Sherman, the receivers coach for the Rams, was reminded of a player he...
TWO OF A DIFFERENT KIND
Janoris Jenkins has been compared to Pacman Jones for several reasons, but Jenkins has a funny reason why it doesn't apply.
ST. LOUIS Now their draft begins.
Sure, the St. Louis Rams made LSU defensive tackle Michael Brockers the 14th overall pick Thursday, and coach Jeff Fisher called him NFL-ready, and general manager Les Snead said he was one of the top-rated players on their board. All those things happened on a night of drama and possibility, but the Rams' draft doesn't truly start until...
ST. LOUIS A legacy has begun. Coach Jeff Fisher and general manager Les Snead will make selections in the last four rounds, of course, but the foundation of the St. Louis Rams' first NFL Draft under new leadership was set early Friday night.
There were various messages sent with the three players taken in the second round: Snead and Fisher trust their instincts when evaluating...
ST. LOUIS (AP) Coach Jeff Fisher ended his first draft with the St. Louis Rams on Saturday by revealing he will go with a rookie kicker this season.
St. Louis reached out to select kicker Greg Zuerlein of Missouri Western in the sixth round. Fisher, who never drafted a kicker when he coached at Tennessee, said the Rams will release veteran kicker Josh Brown on Sunday, a move that...
There probably isn't a very long list of items that the St. Louis Rams' new football tandem of head coach Jeff Fisher and general manager Les Snead salvaged from the rubble left behind by its predecessors, except a penchant for picking good talent in the second round. The significance of that key ingredient was magnified on Friday night, of course, when the Rams exercised...
The St. Louis Rams took a chance on troubled but talented CB Janoris Jenkins last night. The 23-year-old has quite a bit of baggage - a 2009 arrest at bar fight in '09, two marijuana citations in '11, getting kicked off Florida and an Antonio Cromartie-esq four children at the tender age of 23.
Yet still, he's a great pick if Fisher can keep him in check. Coach Fisher...
