Jaguars sign WR Jenkins


The Sports Xchange

The Jacksonville Jaguars signed second-year wide receiver Greg Jenkins to a contract Friday.

The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Jenkins has appeared in six career games since entering the league as an undrafted rookie with the Oakland Raiders in 2013. As a rookie, the former Alabama State quarterback returned six punts for 49 yards (8.2 average) and 10 kickoffs for 221 yards (22.1 average).

Jenkins, 25, recorded his only NFL touchdown on a fumble return on the opening kickoff against the Dallas Cowboys on Nov. 28, 2013. He spent part of the 2014 season on the Raiders’ practice squad after being injured in the preseason.

With the signing of Jenkins, the Jaguars now have 90 players on their roster. The move reunites Jenkins with Jaguars offensive coordinator Greg Olson, who held the same job with the Raiders for the last two seasons.
