Get To Know Michael Jenkins

Posted by Mike Wobschall on August 7, 2011 – 2:11 pm

He wasn’t on the team last year and he wasn’t allowed to practice until Thursday, but WR Michael Jenkins is a player Vikings fans should get to know. At 6-4, 214 pounds, Jenkins will provide Vikings QBs with a big target in the passing game and his familiarity with the offense will make him a leader in the WR group both on the field and in the meeting room.

Should he be the #1 WR on your fantasy team? Maybe not. But he should be a player you get to know because I think he’ll be a factor for the Vikings this season and hopefully for many seasons down the road. I wrote last night that he was a player who stood out in Saturday night’s practice and I anticipate he’ll continue to standout this training camp and the preseason.

Here is a quote from Musgrave on Jenkins: “I think both (WRs coach) George Stewart and I are excited about the prospect of acquiring Mike Jenkins. He’s a solid player. He’s accountable. You get his best every day. He has his strengths and limitations like all of us in every facet of life. We’re excited because he knows our system a little bit better than everybody else because he’s had more time on task over the last three years.

Also, we caught up with Jenkins after practice last week for a quick interview. Check it out by clicking here.
