Patriots Sign FA WR Michael Jenkins
- Updated: March 28, 2013
The Patriots have reportedly signed free agent wide receiver Michael Jenkins, per ESPNBoston.com.
Jenkins is a 10-year veteran in the NFL, playing his last two seasons with the Vikings before becoming a free agent. Last season he posted 40 catches through all 16 games, with 449 yards and two scores as the Vikings #2 receiver.
Jenkins’ 6’4”, 215 pound frame easily makes him the largest Patriots wide receiver, though he’s never put up great numbers or been targeted often, and his inability to separate from defenders is an area of concern.
The terms of the contract, nor his expected role on the team, are known at this point.
