  • Jaguars' Rayshawn Jenkins: Ties season high in tackles

    Jenkins recorded nine tackles (five solo) and a pass defensed in Sunday's 24-21 win at Houston.

    It's the most total tackles Jenkins has managed this year since Week 7 at New Orleans. He's had a slightly underwhelming campaign so far compared to the huge numbers he posted last season, but he's still on the IDP radar heading into a Week 13 matchup versus the Bengals.

  • Jaguars' Rayshawn Jenkins: Season-high nine tackles Thursday

    Jenkins had nine tackles (three solo) in Thursday's 31-24 win over the Saints.

The safety set a new season high in tackles, topping the eight he totaled in both Week 2 against Kansas City and Week 6 against Indianapolis. Jenkins' lone interception of 2023 also came in that game against the Colts.

    Jenkins restructured his contract with Jacksonville on Thursday, Ben Arthur of reports.

    Jenkins had signed a four-year deal with the team in 2021 worth $35 million. The restructuring converted $6.4 million of his salary into a signing bonus, which opened up $5.1 million in cap space for the Jaguars this offseason, according to Jason Fitzgerald of Jenkins finished the 2022 season with a career-high 116 tackles (73 solo) and should maintain his starting strong-safety job in 2023.

  • Jaguars' Rayshawn Jenkins: Sets career high in tackles

    Jenkins had 116 tackles (73 solo), one sack, 12 passes defensed, one interception and three forced fumbles in 17 games during the 2022 regular season.

    The 29-year-old finished with a career high in tackles and finished second on the team, trailing only league-leader Foye Oluokun. It's the first time Jenkins has eclipsed the 100-tackle mark in his career, and he also had his first forced fumbles. He carries a $10.25 million cap hit for 2023 and would have just a $4 million in dead cap if released, which makes him a prime cut or restructure candidate this offseason.

  • Jaguars' Rayshawn Jenkins: Active for Week 18

    Jenkins (shoulder) has been ruled active ahead of Sunday's regular-season finale versus the Titans.

    Jenkins popped up with a shoulder injury during Week 18 prep that left him questionable to play coming into this must-win matchup heading into the wild-card round of the playoffs. The sixth-year safety has recorded career highs across the board with 109 tackles, 11 passes defended and three interceptions over 16 games this season. Expect Jenkins to reprise his starting role alongside Andre Cisco.

  • Jaguars' Rayshawn Jenkins: Status up in the air for Saturday

    Jenkins (shoulder) is considered questionable to play Saturday against the Titans.

    Jenkins was on the field for nearly every defensive snap across the Jaguars' first 15 games of the season. However, it appears he sustained a shoulder injury at some point while playing a season-low 71 percent of defensive snaps against Houston in Week 17, as the 28-year-old was limited in each practice during Week 18 prep. Jenkins has recorded a career-high 109 tackles and 11 passes defended, including two interceptions, during the Week 15 win over Dallas. Should he ultimately suit up, expect Jenkins to retain his role as Jacksonville's starting strong safety versus Tennessee.

  • Jaguars' Rayshawn Jenkins: Another solid outing in win

    Jenkins recorded nine tackles (five solo) in Thursday's 19-3 win over the Jets.

    Though it was expected that Jenkins wouldn't be able to replicate his 18-tackle, two-interception performance he displayed in Week 15 versus Dallas, he still tied for a team-high nine stops and played all but one defensive snap in Thursday's victory over New York. The 28-year-old has already set new career highs with 104 tackles and 11 passes defensed on the season, and he'll now look to keep momentum moving forward when the Jaguars travel to Houston on New Year's Day.

  • Jaguars' Rayshawn Jenkins: Ends huge week with walkoff INT

    Jenkins recorded 18 tackles (nine solo) and two interceptions -- the second of which he returned for the game-winning touchdown -- in Week 15 against Dallas.

    Jenkins was already having a monster game prior to overtime, notching 17 tackles and a big third-quarter interception of Dak Prescott that set up a Jaguars touchdown. Jenkins then stopped Tony Pollard for no gain on a rush up the middle on the Cowboys' third snap of overtime before ending the contest one play later by intercepting Prescott again and returning the pick 52 yards for the decisive score. Per Andrew Siciliano of NFL Network, Jenkins' 18 tackles were the most by any NFL player with at least two interceptions in one game since at least 1994.
