Former Jaguars S Rayshawn Jenkins signing with Seahawks

Former Jacksonville Jaguars safety Rayshawn Jenkins agreed to terms on a contract with the Seattle Seahawks, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

Jenkins, 30, was released by the Jaguars earlier in March to clear $5,148,000 in salary cap space. Much of that additional cap room was used to sign him replacement, former Green Bay Packers safety Darnell Savage Jr., who is due to count $3,460,784 against the Jaguars’ cap in 2024 and then more than $8.6 million in both 2025 and 2026.

In three seasons with the Jaguars, Jenkins recorded five interceptions, 24 passes defended, and 11 tackles for loss. During the 2022 season, he provided two of the biggest plays of the year.

First, he recorded a pick-six in overtime to give the Jaguars a win against the Dallas Cowboys:

Then, he sacked Tennessee Titans quarterback Joshua Dobbs in Week 18, forcing a fumble that was returned by Josh Allen for a go-ahead touchdown in the de facto AFC South championship game.

The Jaguars are ineligible to receive a compensatory draft pick for the loss of Jenkins, as he was a player who was released and didn’t leave on an expired contract.
