The Giants lost to the Packers on Sunday and have now dropped eighth straight. Aaron Rodgers threw four touchdowns in the 31-13 win.
Veteran cornerback Janoris Jenkins believes he could’ve helped the team stop Rodgers, but says he wasn’t being used properly.
“You’ve got to use your weapons,” Jenkins told reporters after the game. “I’m the only one in the league that doesn’t travel. I don’t understand why. It’s common sense. I’m on the left side of the field all game. I get two passes thrown my way. All the top corners in the league travel. Use me the way I need to be used. “That’s all I’m saying.”
Packers top receiver Davante Adams had two touchdowns in the game and Jenkins was not on him both times. The entire Giants secondary has been a mess this season. Jenkins traveled with Mike Evans in Week 3 game and allowed Evans to rack up 190 yards and 3 touchdowns.
Jenkins says he hasn’t spoken to defensive coordinator James Bettcher:
“Nah, I’m playing within the scheme,” Jenkins said. “I ain’t got to complain. I just want to play football.”
Jenkins, 30, signed a 5-year, $62.5M deal with New York in 2016. The deal included over $28M in guaranteed money. He stands to make abase salary of $10.15M next season. The Giants could cut him and save $11.2M in cap.
