Kris Jenkins Announces His Retirement


Former New York Jets nose tackle Kris Jenkins announced his retirement today. He is coming off rehabbing back to back to ACL injuries and the Jets had released him earlier in the off-season, so this isn’t a total surprise. Jenkins was a dominant player when healthy for both Carolina and the Jets. In 2008, he finished with 50 tackles and 3.5 sacks in his only full season in New York, as the past two years were cut short by injury.
