Patriots sign WR Michael Jenkins

Michael Jenkins played with the Minnesota Vikings last season, catching 40 passes for 449 yards and two touchdowns. Jenkins is 30 years old, 6’4 and 214 pounds. He is great against zone coverages, and uses his size to beat man coverage. Last year the Vikings had Ponder at QB who look to the short passes, and relied mostly on the ground game. Jenkins is better suited with an elite QB and a vertical passing game, and provides a redzone threat. It is yet to be determine though if New England will use him as starter, or part of their offensive game plan.
