08:03 AM ET 01.25 | Former Florida cornerback Janoris Jenkins, who played this past season at North Alabama, reportedly had a meeting planned with the Cowboys on Tuesday. Jenkins was kicked off of Florida's team last April after his second drug-related arrest in three months. In June 2009, Jenkins was also arrested near a Gainesville, Fla., bar for fighting and resisting arrest. In January and April of 2011, he was arrested twice for misdemeanor marijuana possession. But Jenkins is highly skilled. Jenkins has impressed NFL scouts this week at the Senior Bowl, but considering his troubles in the past there is no guarantee that the Cowboys would consider taking a chance on him. ... Jenkins said he had already talked to five NFL teams.

He'll make a legendary Cowboy.

No problem. Dez Bryant could mentor the kid.

January 25, 2012  08:07 AM ET

Yep, just what the Cowboys need.

Seems to me that the Bengals would be a better fit.

Does he come with Hand Cuffs?

Indeed.... Pacman Jones could show him how it's done in the pros...

What I was thinking... You think they would go for this kid after the minor, but continuous, problems Bryant has had off the field? This Jenkins kid has some serious talent, but some serious off the field issues... I hope my team stays away.

This is why the Cowboys will always be pretenders and not contenders.

Sounds like a Jet

That he does, but I think the Jets are loaded at CB. The got Darrelle "not so much" Revis island, Antonio "and my youngest kid, whats her name?" Cromartie and way over drafted Kyle "who?" Wilson.

I was thinking maybe my Steelers would take him, but no way with that track record.

Jerry is delusional, period. He thinks he can be owner, GM, Coach, Personnel, cheerleader - he can't do it, just look at what fruit his decisions have bore!!! Ever since he let Jimmy Johnson go, and he won a ring without him( Barry Switzer was coach), Jerry has got such a huge head that this is actually the reason he had to build such an enormous stadium, simply to house his enormous ego ;)

Smoking a little weed and bar fighting, I'd hardly call that a problem. Boys will be boys. The judicial system is the problem every since it became a cash cow.

Go for ti. As long as current coaching staff is in place, Dallas ain't going anywhere next year either. I still don't know, is it Romo or is it something else with this team?

January 25, 2012  10:39 AM ET

Another Pacman. Go get him Jerry.

I was thinking the same thing...but I guess none of the guys who post here have ever gotten into a fight or enjoyed the relaxing feel of the natural grass...maybe I was different in college

It's traffic law enforcement that has become the cash cow. Around here, cops sit in parking lots and run plates, then they give huge tickets to guys whose inspection stickers are a few days overdue. To Protect And Serve is now To Collect And Screw.

Look at the "Clark Rockefeller" case in California. It's a really weak case, all circumstantial evidence. Now, it looks to me like he probably did it, but it's a cold case and they will have a tough time getting a conviction. But, they're going to go ahead and spend millions, in all likelihood, to try this guy. (He's indigent. Guess who pays for his lawyers.) As usual, the lawyers get a big payday and the taxpayers get screwed. And you wonder why California is broke.
