Saints Sign Janoris Jenkins To Extension

The New Orleans Saints signed cornerback Janoris Jenkins to a two-year, $16.75 million contract extension on Wednesday, according to a source. So Jenkins will make $27 million overall for three years, with $10.2 million in guarantees. He'll have two option years after getting all the money he was owed for 2020 up front. The Saints can keep him for a $10 million base and a $1.2 million roster bonus in 2021 and a $5.25 million base and a $500,000 roster bonus in 2022. The 31-year-old played in just two games for New Orleans last year after coming over from the Giants, and he had five interceptions in his 15 games overall. He should be a full-time starter for the Saints in 2020.

NFL Draft Won't Be Held In Las Vegas

Las Vegas will no longer host next month's NFL Draft due to concerns over the coronavirus. The event is still scheduled for April 23-25, and two individuals with knowledge of the discussions said that the current plans call for a type of studio setting with cut-ins to the headquarters of the teams making each selection. It remains to be seen what the NFL will do with the top 20 or 30 prospects expected to be selected in the first round of the draft, as they usually have them on hand to be presented on stage when they are selected.

Emmanuel Sanders Winds Up With Saints

The New Orleans Saints agreed to a two-year, $16 million deal with wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders on Friday. The deal can be worth up to $19 million with incentives. Sanders spoke with the Cowboys and the Packers, but preferred the Saints with quarterback Drew Brees giving it one more run at a Super Bowl in 2020. The 33-year-old caught 36 passes for 502 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games with the Niners after a trade from the Broncos and was coming off a ruptured Achilles in 2018. He's lost a step but lands in a fine environment where he could be the team's No. 2 wideout behind stud Michael Thomas. Sanders could be a nice low-cost value pick later in drafts, especially in PPR formats.

Emmanuel Sanders Unlikely To Land With Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys are unlikely to sign free-agent wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders unless he takes substantially less than what everyone thinks he'll get paid, according to Cowboys officials. With Randall Cobb signing with the Texans, Devin Smith is currently Dallas' No. 3 wideout behind Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup. Sanders would be a nice No. 3 as a veteran presence, but it looks like Dallas won't give Sanders the money he's looking for. The 33-year-old returned from a ruptured Achilles in 2019 and played in seven games with Denver before being traded to the 49ers, where he caught 36 passes for 502 yards and three touchdowns in 10 regular season games. He might not have much left in the tank and probably won't be a consistent fantasy producer in 2020, depending on where he lands.

Saints Re-Sign Andrus Peat To Five-Year Deal

The New Orleans Saints re-signed offensive tackle Andrus Peat to a five-year, $57.5 million deal on Friday, according to a source. The deal includes $33 million in guarantees. Peat was the 13th overall pick of the 2015 draft for New Orleans, and he's been a Pro Bowler each of the past two seasons. The 26-year-old has never played in a full season in his five seasons in the NFL, including just 23 games each of the last two seasons, but he's an essential part of the team's offensive line when he's healthy and active on game days.
