The Bills got to work on their own free agents Tuesday re-signing receiver and special teams stalwart Justin Jenkins. The third-year player was a restricted free agent.
Buffalo did more than just present Jenkins with a qualifying tender offer being that he was a restricted free agent. As a result no other NFL club can present him with an offer sheet. He is under contract with Buffalo.
Jenkins has been a staple on Buffalo’s vaunted special teams units the past two seasons and was instrumental in helping the Bills reclaim the top ranking in the league for special teams units as Buffalo finished first overall in 2008.
The 6’0” 207-pound wideout will be entering his third season with the Bills in 2009.
Jenkins is the first of Buffalo’s impending free agents to re-sign with the club. Other restricted free agents include John DiGiorgio, Keith Ellison, Dustin Fox, Gibran Hamdan and George Wilson.
