Jeff McLane says the deal includes a $9 million signing bonus and could reach $35 million if Jenkins hits all his incentives.
Even at 32, Jenkins remains one of the better safeties in the league. He had 81 tackles, 2.5 sacks and four forced fumbles last season and is extremely versatile in terms of the way a defense can utilize him. Now he is returning to the team that drafted him and where he spent the first five seasons of his career.
