Saints Continue to Try and Get First-Round Pick Jenkins Signed

The Times-Picayune updates the team trying to get their first-round pick, Malcolm Jenkins – inked.

No deal yet for Malcolm Jenkins but the numbers are in on Brian Cushing’s contract with the Houston Texans _ five years, $14 million with $10.435 million in guarantees. The contract includes an escalator clause of $4 million in the final year of the contract so it could grow to $18 million in value.

It will be interesting to see how Saints GM Mickey Loomis views Cushing’s contract at No. 15, especially with the escalator clause that the player likely will never see.

Keep in mind, the pick one spot above Malcolm Jenkins at No. 13, Brian Orakpo, is getting $20 million over five years with $12.1 million in guarantees. Also remember that the agents, Tom Condon and Ben Dogra, who did the deals for Orakpo and Cushing also represent Jenkins. Very interesting.

Stay tuned. It gets curiouser and curiouser.
