Janoris Jenkins fires his agent, during negotiations with Rams

The Rams want to keep both of their free agent cornerbacks, and are expected to use the franchise tag on one of them.

It might have to be Janoris Jenkins, since he doesn’t have anyone to negotiate for him at the moment.

According to Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times, Jenkins has fired his agent. Per NFLPA rules, there’s a five-day window before another agent can be hired. It’s unclear when Jenkins made the switch, starting that clock. His agent is still listed on the union’s website as Malik Hafeez Shareef.

Ostensibly he could negotiate for himself like Russell Okung, but there hasn’t been any indication he wants to do that.

With the franchise tag a possibility for either him or cornerback Trumaine Johnson, and with the tag deadline Tuesday, it complicates things for the Rams, and may complicate their efforts to keep both.
