Jackrabbit has a clear role on the Tennessee Titans defense.
Seemingly every negative comment about the Tennessee Titans has to do with the defense. The same pundits who talk about the 2020 abomination, seem to ignore the fact that GM Jon Robinson spent an entire offseason rebuilding that defense into something worthy of respect.
The talking points usually revolve around how Bud Dupree, Denico Autry, and Rashad Weaver were brought in to help the pass rush and the front seven. If it isn’t that, then the draft picks spent on Caleb Farley and Elijah Molden are brought up to explain why the secondary is going to be inexperienced this year.
However, no one talks about how Jackrabbit Jenkins was brought in to basically replace Malcolm Butler and potentially upgrade that cornerback spot for less money.
Kevin Byard echoed those thoughts today when he compared Jenkins to Butler:
Jenkins has been one of the more active cornerbacks in camp so far and he has a swagger and confidence to his game that you have to have in a league full of talented receivers. While we likely won’t see the pairing until the regular season, the trio of Jenkins, Caleb Farley, and Elijah Molden could be a very talented and very physical group of cornerbacks.
Possibly the most physical group that the Titans have ever had.
