Would the Rams sign AJ Jenkins if he's cut by the *****?
Remember after the 2012 Draft, when Mike Silver wrote a glowing article about Brian Quick and the Rams' mindset in regard to receivers in that class? Let me job your memory if you don't...
The way Silver describes it, Jenkins was the third receiver on the Rams' board in that class, with only Blackmon and Quick ahead of him.
Quick's workout came on the second and most remote stop of the Rams' Receiver Tour, which began with a Thursday afternoon trip to South Bend, Ind., to watch Notre Dame's Michael Floyd. That workout, and subsequent visits to watch Baylor's Kendall Wright, OSU's Blackmon and Illinois' A.J. Jenkins, all were reported by media outlets in the days before the draft.
Once the Jaguars traded up to select Blackmon with the fifth overall selection, Fisher knew he had to get at least one of the five receivers he'd visited on the tour. Quick and Jenkins were the next-most desired targets, followed by Floyd and Wright. (It was also highly plausible that the Rams would have drafted Blackmon and Quick at picks No. 6 and 33, respectively – that's how much they liked the small-college star after their visit to Boone.)
There were some stressful moments late Thursday night during the first round's final two selections, after the ***** had taken Jenkins 30th overall. When the Buccaneers and Giants each selected running backs, Fisher and Snead high-fived – that meant Quick would be there for the taking. By early Friday morning, though they'd already been approached by New York Jets with an offer to trade out of the first pick of the second round, Fisher and Snead were reasonably convinced they'd stay put and take Quick and went to bed with that plan in place.
But believe it or not, it's being reported that Jenkins may be on the roster bubble in San Fran. Jenkins fumbled his lone preseason catch thus far in the exhibition season and, quoting Rotoworld, "was physically manhandled by Chiefs RCB Sean Smith." ***** beat writers are saying he hasn't played well enough to earn a final roster spot.
If the ***** cut Jenkins loose despite his former first round status, do you think Jeff Fisher and Les Snead will bring him in since they thought highly of him in the '12 Draft?

not if he keeps getting "physically manhandled"
