Cardinals Sign Cornerback Mike Jenkins

Keim finds his veteran corner, what will his role be?

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

It isn't even training camp yet but Cardinals' GM Steve Keim is busy making moves.

It was reported today that the Cardinals are bringing in former Dallas Cowboy and Tampa Bay Buccaneer CB Mike Jenkins.

Jenkins had previously been unsigned after a season with the Buccaneers in which he saw time as the team's 3rd cornerback.

A former first-round pick, Jenkins didn't receive the deal he had wanted and fell down the Cowboys' depth chart behind Brandon Carr and Orlando Scandrick.  He struggled through several injury-laden seasons as well when Morris Claiborne was drafted inside the top ten.

What do you think about the signing of Jenkins?  Will he be able to beat out Bethel and lock down the outside or is this a depth move?  Is this another one-year "Steve Keim Special" at low risk or will Jenkins just be a depth guy battling for a roster spot?
