CB Janoris Jenkins has been waived/injured by Giants

Janoris Jenkins signed for the New York Giants on a five-year $62.5m contract in 2016

Jenkins, who injured his ankle in Monday's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, showed no sign of upset following Friday's news, taking to Twitter to welcome his departure in NY.

Jenkins suffered an ankle injury in the Giants' 23-17 overtime loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night and was receiving treatment while his teammates practiced on Wednesday.

"I never said it was right", Jenkins said.

Shortly after the release, Shurmur indicated that the cornerback's lack of contrition led to the decision to move on.

Jenkins received plenty of backlash on Wednesday when he used the word "retard" in a tweet to a critical fan.


The New York Giants announced on Friday that they have waived/injured cornerback Janoris Jenkins.

"Like I said, it's just a slang that I use with my homeboys or back at home in the hood", he continued before he was cut off by a reporter who said, "that doesn't really make it right". "If it offends anybody I'm sorry,". I wasn't calling nobody no name. You know what I'm saying, we use all kinds of words for all kinds of slang. "So I always speak freely as a man".

Things escalated quickly as of late for Janoris Jenkins. "I get two passes a game. Rabbit don't travel no more". He also was arrested in 2009 on misdemeanor affray charges after being involved in a fight and fleeing police.

Selected by the Rams in the second round of the 2012 draft out of North Alabama, Jenkins signed a five-year, $62.5 million free agent contract with the New York Giants on March 9, 2016. He's tied for 11th in National Football League history for interception-return TDs.
