Janoris Jenkins #21 of the St. Louis Rams breaks up a pass intended for Doug Baldwin #89 of the Seattle Seahawks in the third quarter at the Edward Jones Dome on October 19, 2014 in St. Louis, Missouri. The Rams beat the Seahawks 28-26. "

The Los Angeles Rams will need to decide the fate of their secondary as both Janoris Jenkins and Trumaine Johnson's contracts are both up.

Jenkins will get more publicity as he has been the more productive corner. This season Jenkins played and started in 15 games. He recorded 64 combined tackles, 15 pass defenses, 3 interceptions, and a forced fumble. Over his career with the Rams Jenkins has amassed 257 combined tackles, 1 sack, 48 pass defenses, 10 interceptions, 3 forced fumbles, and 5 defensive touchdowns.

Los Angeles will have $35 million in cap space so they should be able to figure something out with Jenkins. Jenkins has a pretty small cap hit of only $1,587, 829 so it is possible that the Rams find a way to keep him on the roster. Jenkins will represent just one of the few elite corners that will be available this free agency period.

Teams such as the Chicago Bears, New Orleans Saints, Oakland Raiders, Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins, Baltimore Ravens, New York Giants, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers could be potential big money suitors for the productive cornerback. With cornerbacks always in such a high demand in the NFL teams can never have to many, especially when they're as good as Jenkins.
