NFC Rumors: Jenkins, Eagles, Seahawks, Rams

Offensive lineman Teven Jenkins was taken in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft last year by the Chicago Bears, but only got a small portion of his rookie season to earn a spot on the line. Well, according to Adam Jahns of The Athletic, the new Bears’ staff is giving him the best chance, alongside fellow 2021 Draft pick Larry Borom, to start at right or left tackle.

Jenkins underwent back surgery in the preseason last year and was placed on injured reserve. He returned and made his debut in early December, playing on special teams. An injury to left tackle Jason Peters opened the door for Jenkins and he subbed in for the next two weeks, returning to a reserve role after that.

New offensive line coach Chris Morgan has been pleasantly surprised by the two second-year players, so far, but remarks that “everything changes once the pads come on.” It appears, though, that, for now, the starting tackle jobs are Jenkins and Borom’s to lose.

Here are some other rumors from around the NFC, starting with a rumor out of the City of Brotherly Love:

  • The Eagles were the franchise that mercifully and excitedly put an end to the slide of presumed first-round pick Nakobe Dean. Dean ended up falling to the third round due to projections about his long-term health. The Eagles could’ve gone another route, though, according to Zach Berman of The Athletic. Berman says that Philadelphia reportedly had multiple trade offers to move back from the pick they used to select Dean. Due to their significant lack of of Day 3 picks, it would have made all of the sense in the world for them to take one of those teams up on their offers, but, lo and behold, the Eagles stood pat and drafted Dean, a testament to the confidence they have in his addition.
  • The Eagles weren’t the only team looking at the possibility of moving. According to Brady Henderson of ESPN, “the Seahawks tried to trade up into the late first round” of the 2022 NFL Draft for Penn State outside linebacker Arnold Ebiketie. Like Philadelphia, Seattle stood pat, hoping he may slide to them in the second round. Unfortunately for the Seahawks, Atlanta moved up to select Ebiketie two spots in front of them. Seattle ended up selecting Minnesota outside linebacker Boye Mafe instead. Mafe is no consolation prize but a strong pick in his own regard, having generated first-round buzz before slipping to the front of the second round. Seattle swung and missed on Ebiketie, but they most certainly did not strike out when they landed Mafe.
  • The Rams won Super Bowl LVI despite the losses before the game of tight end Tyler Higbee and safety Jordan Fuller. Fuller suffered an ankle injury in the team’s Week 18 loss to the 49ers and Higbee suffered a knee injury in the NFC Championship game. Both players underwent offseason surgery and, according to Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic, are “working their way back up to full football activity.”

Sean McVay Still Eyeing Rams-OBJ Reunion

Despite Odell Beckham Jr. free agency noise quieting in recent weeks, the Rams still have the standout wide receiver in their plans. Sean McVay wants the ninth-year veteran back in his offense.

Beckham finished his first Rams contract on a bittersweet note, tearing an ACL during a Super Bowl he helped the team win. Although the defending champions have added Allen Robinson on a $15.5MM-per-year deal and are prepared to give Cooper Kupp a raise of some sort, another OBJ deal remains the goal.

Oh, of course. I really want Odell back on our team,” McVay said during an appearance on the Rich Eisen Show (via NFL.com) this weekHe’s a guy that, in a short amount of time, we were able to develop a really special relationship. I thought he brought a great spark to our team. I thought he played really well. He’s a great teammate.

Without a doubt, want to get Odell back here. That’s the goal and continuing to work toward a solution of him re-signing with the Rams.”

Beckham collected $4.75MM from the Rams for a partial season of work and would have been a sought-after free agent had the ACL tear — his second in 15 months — not occurred. But the 29-year-old pass catcher is not expected to be ready to start this season. It might be until late October until OBJ can play again.

Still, he has been connected to the Patriots, Packers and even the Browns this offseason. Rams brass, however, consistently spoke of a reunion back in March. They did not draft a wideout last month. Second-round pick Tutu Atwell, who missed much of his rookie season due to injury, also remains in the picture. But a clear top four of Kupp, Robinson, Beckham and Van Jefferson would represent one of the best wideout quartets in recent memory. It will be interesting if a team needier at wide receiver steps up with a noticeably better offer, but a Beckham return would give the Rams a stacked receiver depth chart that would remind of the one they had for about a day last season — prior to Robert Woods‘ ACL tear.

OBJ alluded to wanting to stay in Los Angeles; money, as could be expected, remains an issue (Twitter links). Holding barely $5MM in cap space, the Rams are near the bottom of the league here. Though, they frequently figure out ways to fit stars onto their payroll. New deals for Kupp and Aaron Donald could carve out more space as well, as they push big cap numbers down the road.

Latest On Rams DL Aaron Donald

Aaron Donald‘s next contract with the Rams could be more than just a raise. According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, Donald’s next deal will likely be an extension.

The three-time Defensive Player of the Year has three years remaining on his current deal, which he signed in 2018 following a holdout one year earlier. While Donald’s current deal once reset the market, the going rate for top defensive players is now around $28MM. The star defensive tackle is currently making $22.5MM per year, so there’s a bit of a gap to make up between the two sides.

As Fowler notes, the retirement rumblings coming out of Donald’s camp were “real,” and they may have been influenced by his contract. Per the reporter, Donald has a certain “number he will play for,” so the Rams will have to pony up if they want him on the field next season. While contract talks were previously described as “nothing but positive,” Fowler cautions that Donald could still hang up his cleats if his demands aren’t met.

An extension would be an interesting tactic for the Rams to take. By adding extra years to the three remaining three years on Donald’s contract, the Rams would be locking themselves into the player through his mid-30s. However, as Fowler notes, this would be the team’s best path to spread cap space and retain their core.

While Donald wasn’t able to defend his Defensive Player of the Year award in 2021, he still had a standout campaign, earning his seventh-straight first-team All-Pro nod. Donald finished the season with a career-high 84 tackles to go along with 12.5 sacks, 25 QB hits, and four forced fumbles.
