Jelani Jenkins joins Raiders

Free agent Jelani Jenkins, 6 feet and 240lbs, has signed with the Raiders.

The former Dolphins linebacker was drafted in 2013 at #104 overall (fourth round). He has played a total of 53 games in his career so far, which has seen more than his fair share of injuries, most notably to his knee last season.  Of those games, 34 were starts, including seven last season.

The Raiders will be hoping that Jelani Jenkins, who plays mostly weak-side, can capture his 2014 form when he led the Miami team with 108 tackles of which 81 were solo efforts.

Welcome to the dark side, Jelani.
