The Raiders are interested in Dallas Cowboys free agent cornerback Mike Jenkins, according to Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas. 

Jenkins has spent all five seasons with the Cowboys after being selected in the first round in 2008. He was selected to the Pro Bowl in his second season when he recorded five interceptions and 49 tackles.

In 2012, he had just 14 tackles and no interceptions in 13 games, as he was relegated to a backup role with the arrivals of Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne in Dallas.

Earlier this month, Watkins reported that the Cowboys were not interested in bringing back Jenkins.
