Mike Jenkins hasn't been happy lately with the Dallas Cowboys, especially when they signed Brandon Carr and drafted Morris Claiborne. Adding to it, Dallas also has Orlando Scandrick in the secondary as well.

With rumors of Jenkins heading to the Indianapolis Colts in a trade, the Cowboys have insisted that they will keep him.

With that, Dallas will be heading into the upcoming NFL season with four good cornerbacks. Why?

Well, with the NFL being a more pass-happy league, the Cowboys like having a lot of corners.

“This league has become a passing league,” defensive backs coach Jerome Henderson told NFL.com. “Look at what the quarterbacks are doing and how the game is kind of evolving a little bit, how they protect the quarterbacks, and rightfully so. The more cover guys you have, the better off you’ll be on defense. So any time we can put cover guys on the field in a pass situation and let those guys match up, I think it helps our defense. We’ll look to do that some if the opportunity presents itself.”

This is actually a good idea. With more teams interested in four wide receiver sets or two-receiver and two-tight-end sets, it makes sense to have four corners on the field.

We'll probably be seeing more and more teams in the league following this exact agenda pretty soon.
