RotoWire Fantasy Analysis
Jenkins signed a contract with the Eskimos on Monday, Justin Dunk of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Jenkins signed with the Los Angeles Chargers of the NFL after going undrafted in 2017, though he was released prior to training camp. The 23-year-old played college football at Jacksonville State, where he racked up 7,652 passing yards, 47 touchdowns and 27 interceptions to go along 3,796 rushing yards and 42 touchdowns as a dual-threat quarterback. The Eskimos just traded James Franklin to the Argonauts, so look for Jenkins to step in as Mike Reilly's backup.
