Patriots release Michael Jenkins

Patriots released veteran WR Michael Jenkins.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) August 15, 2013 Big surprise! Not really though. Jenkins is a slower, older receiver who was never expected to be much more than a camp body. He had the primary reps with Brady at the beginning of minicamp, but since has fallen out of the rotation. The move is probably a good sign for the Patriots, as...

Lavelle Hawkins, Michael Jenkins, Kamar Aiken Among Patriots’ Wide Receivers Battling for Final Roster Spots

Tom Brady may still need some time to get everyone’s names down. The Patriots have nine new wide receivers on their roster as they roll on through training camp, and of the three who do have experience with Brady — Kamar Aiken, Julian Edelman and Matthew Slater — only Edelman has more than one career reception. A few spring practices and a handful of days in camp may have alleviated...

Michael Jenkins Says Patriots’ Playbook Comes Easy With Hard Work, Extra Time

FOXBORO, Mass. – Michael Jenkins doesn’t have many wide receivers who have been in the Patriots’ system in the past to lean on. But he’s still seeming to pick up the offense pretty quickly.

Michael Jenkins Could Have Bigger Role in Patriots’ Offense Than Expected Based on First Week of OTAs (Podcast)

On Tuesday, the Patriots weren’t wearing pads or numbers on their jerseys, and they were practicing at three-quarters speed, so there wasn’t much to gain from the first week of OTAs available to the media.
