WR A.J. Jenkins: 'Blessed and humbled' to be part of Cowboys


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5/28/2015) The Cowboys signed former first-round pick A.J. Jenkins earlier this week, and it didn't take long for him to acknowledge he needs to make an impression soon, per The Dallas Morning News.

“I got to hurry up and make some plays and do something,” Jenkins said.

Jenkins was drafted with the 30th pick of the 2012 draft by the 49ers, but only plaed in three games as a rookie. In 2013, the 49ers traded him to the Chiefs where he played in every game but caught only eight passes. Last season he caught nine passes in nine games for the Chiefs before they released him in February.

Now, Jenkins is just happy that a tryout with the Cowboys resulted in the team giving him another shot.

“It was a lift off of my shoulders,” Jenkins said. “It really was because you don’t really know how it goes. There are a lot of guys who stay waiting for a long time and they don’t get a phone call. I’m blessed and humbled for the opportunity, and it being the Cowboys, an organization that’s known for a lot of things. I’m just happy to be a part of it.”


Report: WR A.J. Jenkins set to join Cowboys


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2015) The Cowboys have signed wide receiver A.J. Jenkins, a source has told the Dallas Morning News.

Jenkins has been a disappointment since his selection in the first round of the draft three years ago by San Francisco. He played in only three games that season before a trade to Kansas City, where he managed just 17 catches for 223 yards and no touchdowns in 2013 and 2014 combined.

He tried out for the Cowboys last week. And with superstar wideout Dez Bryant not expected to participate in OTAs, Jenkins at the very least gives the team another body at that position.

A.J. Jenkins making 'smooth' transition


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2013) Chiefs wide receiver A.J. Jenkins has had a "smooth" transition since being acquired from San Francisco in a Aug. 19 trade.

"It’s been real smooth," Jenkins said, per NFL.com. "(The) coaches have been making it as smooth as possible, as well as the team. The guys are bringing me in with a good vibe; my family has been supporting me really well, so, it’s been a pretty good transition."

Jenkins said it's also been beneficial to be reunited with quarterback Alex Smith, who he worked with in San Francisco.

"It’s great," Jenkins said. "Alex is a guy I first knew, when I first got into the league last year in San Francisco. He’s been a great help with me, back then as a rookie, and now he’s doing it here, as far as the playbook, helping me out. So, just knowing the guy like that helps me, being out there with him."


Trade a new chance for disappointing A.J. Jenkins


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2013) New Chiefs wide receiver A.J. Jenkins struggled to stand out in San Francisco, so he is hoping Monday's trade to Kansas City helps the 2012 first-round pick find his way. He thinks playing with Alex Smith again could help him along the way.

"When I first got there, me and Alex were working out a lot together," Jenkins told NFL.com. "We were talking a lot about the offense, trying to get me up to speed with the offense. It's kind of like the same thing now; he's been here since the offseason, now he has to put me up to speed again with the playbook. So, we'll just keep on working and keep on doing what we do."

Jenkins appeared in just three games for the 49ers as a rookie and never seemed to impress the coaching staff much this preseason. For his part, Smith thinks Jenkins might have a better chance of fulfilling his potential with lowered expectations in Kansas City.

"It was a different situation there, when he came in; that's a veteran team, a lot of pieces in place, so it wasn't his job from the jump," he said. "He came in and had to battle for it. It was a deeper roster there and for whatever reason, it didn't work out. He's a guy with a ton of talent, a lot of speed; I think the change will do him some good."


49ers trade A.J. Jenkins to the Chiefs for Jon Baldwin


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/19/2013) The 49ers have traded receiver A.J. Jenkins to the Chiefs for receiver Jon Baldwin

Both players fell out of favor with their previous teams. Baldwin had been beaten by Donnie Avery for the No. 2 receiver role in Kansas City while Jenkins failed to latch on to any role with the Niners in training camp. 

In two years with the Chiefs Baldwin totaled 41 catches for 579 yards and two scores. Jenkins has yet to make a catch in a regular-season game. 


A.J. Jenkins continues to disappoint


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2013) 49ers wide receiver A.J. Jenkins showed yet again Friday against the Chiefs why he is in danger of not making the team, despite being a first-round pick last season.

Jenkins was targeted twice in the preseason game, and he failed to bring in either pass thrown his way. Jenkins has just one reception for 11 yards, along with a fumble. He has reportedly fallen way down on the receiver depth charts at this point. 


La Canfora can see Niners cutting A.J. Jenkins


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2013) 49ers wide receiver A.J. Jenkins continues to disappoint since being selected with a 2012 first-round pick, and CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora wrote Wednesday he could see the 49ers heading into the regular season without Jenkins on the roster.

It has been reported throughout training camp that Jenkins has fallen outside of the team's top-six on the receiver depth chart, and it is looking more and more likely that the team could cut its losses already.
