  • Jenkins a no show at minicamp

    For those of you who're unaware. During the NFL draft the Carolina Panthers received an offer from the St Louis Rams for Kris Jenkins, a second round pick.

    The Carolina Panthers refused this offer instead opting to trade down with the Jets and pick up a second rounder anyway.

    After being on the trading block for a few months Jenkins began to actually do something in the offseason and got into decent shape. After the trade didn't come to fruition he reportedly (from the Charlotte Observer etc) said he was happy to be in Carolina, and that it was "just business" and seemed to be on board.

    Now he's a no show in camp.

    From what I've heard, and I can't name my source because the NFL has already had words with me and people I work with about our coverage of the Panthers, Jenkins loves to run his mouth in TC. When they're doing sprints he's always talking back to the Strength and Condition coach and has apparently got into heated arguments with both him and Trgovac during drills over the past few years.

    I'm thinking the big baby might be getting sick of being in Carolina because he has to work to keep his roster spot. After not getting traded he was probably pissed off and having to go run in the Spartanberg heat isn't helping.

    He's a great player when motivated, its just getting him there that's the trouble. He is apparently working out with a personal trainer, but that's what he's told sources for the last few years and he's always shown up to camp, sloppy and nearly 380 pounds.,

    Typical "insider" information. I hate to be rude about it, but there are a hundred people that pretend to be insiders and, in fact, aren't. I'm not saying that you don't have a connection or that this news isn't reliable, I'm just saying most people will be weary to believe this.

      Its ok, you can check out my work on www.carolinahuddle.com just to pimp my name lol, but I do write for them. Here's some stuff from an interview our guy conducted.

      A few questions to Damione Lewis:

      Do you talk to Kris?

      "Every once in awhile I do."

      What did he say?

      "We just talked about average stuff, we really didn't get into business. I'm friends with Kris and he's a great guy and we'll just leave it at that."

      Does it put the team at a disadvantage when he doesn't show up to this?

      "I really can't comment. Like I said this is business and I really don't know anything about the situation and I'll just leave it at that."

      And from Mike Wahle:

      Even though these are voluntary is it pretty much understood that.....

      "If you are talking about Kris I really don't know why he's not here and it's not my business to talk about him."
      If anyone wants or feels they need more confirmation, admins, mods or whatever, PM me and I'll be happy to provide the information, but publicly I cannot do it. And I've probably all ready posted stuff I shouldn't have.

          There are several (3) Giants posters on this forum that are "big shots" on other websites. Neither of them are BBD or Damix.

                    That username was original.

                      Tough internet talk. Man, I wish I had the balls to be an internet tough guy.

                        Hey, what kind of fan would I be if I didn't stick up for my team?

                            You didn't really stand up for you team other than saying that "many" felt that stephenson86 was "shocking (in a bad way)". If you would have said, "I disagree, I feel that Shockey and Manning are good players and the Giants will do better than the Titans" then that would have been standing up for your team.

                              How does Carolina decline a second round pick for a guy that has had so many issues throughout his career? Didn't he struggle with substance abuse on top of his major injuries? That's poor managment.
