Talks Continue Between Saints and Rookie CB Jenkins

Today’s Times Picayune talks about the on-going talks between the Saints and first-round pick Malcolm Jenkins:

Agent Ben Dogra broke his public silence on Saints rookie cornerback Malcolm Jenkins’ negotiations, more specifically his ongoing talks with Saints Director of Football Operations Khai Harley, who has been handling the day-to-day discussions in concert with Loomis.

“Sometimes negotiations take longer than we want them to,” Dogra said Saturday. “Hey, we want to get a deal done and they want to get a deal done. Malcolm is our last man standing. Hopefully, we’ll get this resolved sooner rather than later. This happens to be our last negotiations (in the first round) so all eyes perhaps are on us. But from a practical standpoint, there won’t be any more or any less emphasis given to this negotiation. The emphasis has been exactly the same. It has been important to us from the outset.”

Dogra declined to discuss details of the negotiations or what is preventing a deal from getting done. Jenkins’ absence from training camp now is the longest by a Saints’ player this decade, exceeding the holdout of eight days by Deuce McAllister (2001) and Devery Henderson (2004).
