Big Blue Report: Jenkins Cut By Big Blue

The New York Giants announced this morning that Cornerback Janoris Jenkins has been waived/injured.

Jenkins injured his ankle during Monday’s loss in Philadelphia and has not practiced this week.

On Wednesday, while he was rehabbing the injury, Jenkins engaged in an inappropriate Twitter exchange with a fan.

“This was an organizational decision,” coach Pat Shurmur said. “From ownership to management to our football operations, we felt it was in the best interests of the franchise and the player. Obviously, what happened this week, and the refusal to acknowledge the inappropriate and offensive language, was the determining factor.”

Jenkins has been very outspoken about the Franchise and the effort of his teammates and coaching staff in his media sessions over the last few weeks and even noted on twitter how happy he was on the cut.

The love affair was obviously over between the two sides and now the Giants can continue their rebuild. The move will save the Giants 11 million on their cap for next year.

Jenkins, who had one year remaining on his deal was excited and hit social media saying “finally some good news.”
