Janoris Jenkins doesn’t understand why he isn’t “traveling” like other top cornerbacks in the NFL.
Ironically, he might have punched his ticket out of town by questioning the Giants coaches.
Actually, on second thought, he might still outlast this hot-seat staff.
The Giants are a mess, especially on defense and in the secondary, and their best cornerback said the decision not to have him follow the other team’s best wide receivers around the field is exacerbating the problems. Davante Adams and Allen Lazard combined for three touchdowns as the Packers beat the Giants, 31-13.
“I’m the only one in the league that don’t travel no more,” a frustrated Jenkins said after the Giants’ eighth straight loss. “I don’t understand why. I was traveling other years.”
It is no secret Jenkins’ usage is the product of being surrounded by first- and second-year defensive backs DeAndre Baker, Sam Beal, Grant Haley, Corey Ballentine and Julian Love. Baker, a rookie first-round pick, has had a difficult time grasping the playbook and has gone from full-time starter to rotating with Beal.
