2013 NFL free agents: Mike Jenkins to visit Buffalo Bills

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Jenkins has experience on the outside and in the slot; he could contribute in either area for Buffalo.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Dallas Cowboys free agent cornerback Mike Jenkins has a visit scheduled with the Buffalo Bills, along with a just-completed trip to Jacksonville and a pending visit to Oakland.

Jenkins, 28, is a former first-round pick of the Cowboys in 2008 out of South Florida. He made a well-earned trip to the Pro Bowl in his second pro season, but after a large dip in play the following year, Jenkins has started just 14 games over the past two seasons. He's started 48 games in five years, recording 146 tackles and eight interceptions in 71 career appearances.

The Bills, of course, have plenty of question marks at cornerback. The team re-signed Leodis McKelvin to a four-year, $17 million contract earlier this off-season, but McKelvin has had his share of struggles as a former 2008 first-round pick, as well; in fact, the two corners have had fairly similar career arcs. Aaron Williams, a 2011 second-round pick, is considered McKelvin's chief competition for a starting job, but has been even less consistent than McKelvin, and may not even stay at cornerback with a new coaching staff coming in.

Jenkins could conceivably enter the fray for the No. 2 cornerback role in Buffalo, though he also has considerable experience playing in the slot, where the Bills also have question marks. The sixth-year cornerback is reportedly seeking a multi-year deal.
