The New Orleans Saints hope that they made their secondary better on Monday.

The team claimed former St. Louis Rams (2012-2015) and New York Giants (2016-2019) cornerback Janoris Jenkins off waivers.

The transaction will become official on Tuesday.

The Giants cut Jenkins last week after he used a slur for the mentally challenged. He did issue an apology but was still waived.

The 31-year old Jenkins appeared in 13 games for the Giants this season, all as a starter, compiling 54 tackles and four interceptions.

In parts of 8 seasons in the NFL, Jenkins has appeared in 113 games, including 109 as a starter, totaling 459 tackles and 22 interceptions.
