Report: Raiders bring back DT John Jenkins on one-year deal

With free agency nearly a week old, the Raiders free agents have had plenty of opportunity to see what kind of market was out there for them. And some are opting to now return to the team.

Today it was about bringing back two of the reasonably productive interior defensive linemen from last season. Earlier today it was Adam Butler who re-signed. And no John Jenkins is re-joining him according to ESPN’s Amber Wilson.

The 34-year-old comes back on a one-year, $3.25 million deal per the report.

His 61 combined tackles last season led all Raiders interior defenders, showing that he still has something to offer. Making this a good value signing for the team.

The big ticket addition for the Raiders this offseason was former Dolphins DT Christian Wilkins. Jenkins figures to rotate with Adam Butler at the other defensive tackle spot with several former Raiders draft picks like Byron Young, Matthew Butler, and Nesta Jade Silvera competing for snaps as well.
