Per SNY's Ralph Vacchiano, there has not been any indication the Giants will cut cornerback Janoris Jenkins, who carries a $14.75 million cap hit in 2019, nor restructure his contract.
While there is always the possibility they could change course, it does not appear to be trending that direction and GM Dave Gettleman's comments at the NFL scouting combine would seem to confirm that trend.
Gettleman said last week that he does not want to restructure contracts and cited Jenkins specifically as someone he was forced to do it last year because of their cap situation and does not want to do it again.
The Giants would save $7.75 million in cap space if they were to release Jenkins but still be on the hook for $7 million in dead money.
It would also create another gaping hole to fill in the defense, especially if Vernon and Collins are out of the picture.
Jenkins, 30, signed with the Giants on a five-year, $62.5 million contract in 2016 but has had just one Pro Bowl season with Big Blue.
He battled through injuries in 2017, playing in just nine games, but managed to bounce back from and stay healthy in 2018, finishing the season with two interceptions, 15 pass deflections and 70 tackles.
