EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - When the Giants went on their offseason spending spree, nothing surprised the NFL more than the five-year, $62.5 million deal the Giants gave to cornerback Janoris Jenkins. That contract, with its $28.8 million in guaranteed money, was the one where many agreed the Giants had badly overspent.
Nobody is saying that anymore, of course. Now that deal looks like a steal.
Jenkins, who prefers to be called "Jackrabbit", showed everyone again why he's worthy of a trip to the Pro Bowl this winter with yet another smothering, dominant performance on Sunday night. He made Dallas' Pro Bowl receiver, Dez Bryant, completely irrelevant. Bryant was targeted nine times by rookie quarterback Dak Prescott. He caught just one pass for 10 yards.
