Jenkins, 30, spent the 2017 season with the Bears before spending time with the Giants and Dolphins. In Miami last year, he started five times and appeared in all 16 games. He finished out the year with 34 total tackles and his first sack since 2015. The deal also reunites him with old colleague Ryan Pace, the Bears GM who worked in the Saints’ front office when Jenkins was drafted back in 2013.

Jaguars Sign 18 UDFAs; Cut 5 Players

The Jaguars made a slew of UDFA signings on Monday and released five players to make room for them. Here’s the full rundown, per the club’s press release.

Signed:

  • Luq Barcoo, CB (San Diego State)
  • Doug Cotsin, DL (Miami of Ohio)
  • Nathan Cottrell, RB (Georgia Tech)
  • Ben Ellefson, TE (North Dakota State)
  • Nate Evans, LB (Central Florida)
  • Josh Hammond, WR (Florida)
  • Amari Henderson, CB (Wake Forest)
  • Tavien Feaster, RB (South Carolina)
  • Ross Matiscik, LS (Baylor)
  • Steven Nielson, OL (Eastern Michigan)
  • Austen Pleasants, OL (Ohio)
  • J.R. Reed, S (Georgia)
  • James Robinson, RB (Illinois State)
  • Marvelle Ross, WR (Notre Dame College of Ohio)
  • Connor Slomka, FB (Army)
  • Tre’Vour Wallace-Simms, OL (Missouri)
  • Kobe Williams, CB (Arizona State)
  • Brandon Wright, K (Georgia State)

Feaster, who spent most of his collegiate career with Clemson before transferring to South Carolina, is one of the more notable names on their UDFA list. Last year, he led the Gamecocks in rushing with 672 yards and scored five touchdowns via the ground. Meanwhile, Barcoo scored a whopping $160K guarantee (Twitter link via Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle), which may be the highest ever for an undrafted free agent in the NFL. Barcoo was one of four undrafted Aztecs to score deals this week. He’ll look to bulk up on his thin 175-pound frame as he pursues his lifelong dream.

Released:

Peake showed promise as a seventh-round rookie in 2016, catching 19 passes with Gang Green. After that, he wasn’t able to keep his footing with the Jets and he’ll have to find a new NFL home now that the Jaguars have dropped him.

Falcons Sign 16 Undrafted Free Agents

The Falcons agreed to sign with 16 undrafted college free agents on Monday. Here’s the full breakdown of Atlanta’s eight new offensive players, seven new defenders, and one long snapper:

Stanley, a wide receiver at Georgia, will aim to show his stuff as a cornerback for the Falcons. The 6’2″, 207-pounder didn’t see a ton of playing time with the Bulldogs, but the Falcons are curious to find out whether his athletic skills can translate to success on the other side of the ball.
