Adam Caplan's Flash Analysis While the Saints have a decent amount of cornerbacks already on their roster, only newcomer Jabari Greer is guaranteed to start. Jenkins offers solid size and he's a good fit for their revamped 4-3 defensive scheme. Jenkins could eventually be moved to safety where many believe he belongs long-term.
