Jenkins was released by the Cowboys, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.
ANALYSIS
Jenkins reportedly made a late push for a roster spot, but the No. 5 wide receiver job went to undrafted rookie Rodney Whitehead. The former first-round pick may continue to get chances, but his draft status shouldn't be mistaken for upside, as there's been no indication that he's anything more than a borderline NFL player

Jenkins, a first-round pick of the 49ers in 2012, will try to prolong his career with the Cowboys after recording just 17 catches over the last two seasons with the Chiefs
Jenkins' wheels and hands were supposed to make him a dangerous deep threat, but two seasons into his NFL career the former first round pick of the 49ers has just eight catches on his CV. The Chiefs need a burner to complement Dwayne Bowe, and Andy Reid turned the similarly speedy DeSean Jackson into a star in Philadelphia, but Alex Smith's popgun arm and Jenkins' own less-than-exemplary work ethic could make it tough for the receiver to make any kind of impact.
Jenkins had a negligible role with the 49ers last season, seeing just 35 offensive snaps and one target all season. While the 6-0, 192-pound Jenkins has just average size, he has good speed (4.39 40 at the NFL Combine), runs crisp routes and possesses good hands. Jenkins, the 30th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, will now get a well-timed fresh start with the Chiefs, but he has much to prove before becoming a reliable fantasy option. For now, we'd expect him to slot in behind new teammates Dwayne Bowe, Donnie Avery and Dexter McCluster.
Taken with the 30th pick of this year’s draft, the 6-0, 192-pound Jenkins has just average size, but good speed (4.39 40 at the NFL Combine), runs crisp routes and has good hands. The 49ers are suddenly deep at the receiver position with Michael Crabtree, Randy Moss and Mario Manningham, but Moss is a crap shoot and Manningham’s not getting enough guaranteed money to ensure him a prominent role. Jenkins’ upside in a run-first offense with a good deal of competition for targets – including tight end Vernon Davis – is on the modest side in Year 1, but he’s a prospect to watch for the second half of the year and beyond.
