Jenkins still has two years to run on his contract with Adelaide, but former club great Andrew Jarman said on Triple M’s Rush Hour with Jars and Louie that the Cats are keen to bolster their tall forward department after being outgunned by the Tigers last Friday night.
“Geelong Football Club may have a crack at him, because they want to get another tall forward down there to support Tommy (Tom) Hawkins,” Jarman said.
“(Lachie) Henderson can’t do the job….the Adelaide Crows have been trying to shop him around, see what they can get for him and see who’s actually interested.”
As players weigh up their futures, the current lack of a senior coach at both Adelaide and Fremantle was mentioned as a potential deterrent for those players to re-sign at their clubs.
“Any player who’s got any wit about them is going to go ‘Well hang on a minute, I’m not going to pledge my allegiance to the Adelaide Football Club, or any club…that hasn’t got a head coach that I know anything about.”
Jenkins has kicked 296 goals in 147 games for the Crows since being picked up from Essendon at the end of 2011.
