Veteran edge rusher Jordan Jenkins and corner Ross Cockrell are among the first of hundreds of players who’ll be looking for work as the NFL’s first round of cuts are starting to appear on transaction wires.
Jenkins, a seventh-year pro, was cut by the Houston Texans on Tuesday.
Jenkins was a full-time starter until 2021 and posted as many as eight sacks (2019) with the New York Jets before moving on.
Now, he’ll be looking for his third team in as many years.
Cockrell, 32, was a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Super Bowl team in 2020 and played in all 17 games a year ago.
In doing so, he logged seven passes defended and a forced fumble in 2021.
He posted a solid 68.4 Pro Football Focus grade (PFF) over that span.
