The movement to keep the Rams in St. Louis isn’t the only thing gaining traction this week.

Can St. Louis Rams CB Janoris Jenkins rise to elite level of NFC West counterparts?

Cornerbacks Janoris Jenkins and Trumaine Johnson are each entering their third season, which makes them the veterans among the starting unit.
