Giants to sign ex-Rams CB Janoris Jenkins

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) The New York Giants are set to sign top free-agent cornerback Janoris Jenkins to a longterm contract.

Jenkins, one of the NFL's top cornerbacks, expects to sign a five-year deal worth about $60 million later Wednesday. The free-agent signing period begins at 4 p.m. EST.

The move comes a day after the Giants agreed on a deal with unrestricted defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul.

Jenkins' signing will likely mean the end of Prince Amukamara's Giants career. The former 2011 first-round cornerback was told by the Giants to test the open market.

Jenkins' agent Malik Shareef did not return phone messages.

In Jenkins, the Giants will gain a durable, productive cornerback they can pair with returning left cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to provide immediate help to the league's worst pass defense.

Jenkins 10 interceptions and 35 pass breakups since 2012.
