The Arizona Cardinals' search for cornerback depth is leading them in a new direction.

According to AZCentral Sports' Kent Somers, Mike Jenkins is expected to visit with the team Tuesday.

Jenkins, 28, spent last season with the Oakland Raiders after being with the Dallas Cowboys the previous five.

The former first-round pick, now 28, tallied 65 combined tackles along with two interceptions, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and six passes defensed last season.

In his career, he has 226 tackles and 10 interceptions.

The Cardinals had previously been linked to New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie, and while he visited with the team last week, no deal was signed and both parties may have decided to move on.
