CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -The Carolina Panthers have traded three-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Kris Jenkins to the New York Jets for third- and fifth-round draft picks.
The deal Friday ends a tumultuous year for Jenkins. He was placed on the trading block last year and angered the coaching staff for being overweight and missing offseason workouts.
Jenkins played all 16 games last season but made only 2 1/2 sacks. Near the end of the season he said he wasn't sure he wanted to return to Carolina next season.
At 6-foot-4 and 349 pounds, Jenkins could move to nose tackle in the Jets' 3-4 defensive scheme.
