Janoris Jenkins Trying to Repair Image

FLORENCE, Ala. (AP) -- Janoris Jenkins is determined to repair
his reputation.

That's why the former Florida cornerback says he transferred to
Division II North Alabama instead of entering the NFL's
supplemental draft.

Gators coach Will Muschamp kicked Jenkins off the team following
the player's arrest for possession of marijuana. It was his second
drug-related arrest in three months and the third of his college
career.

Jenkins says he wasn't really tempted to enter the supplemental
draft because he "just wanted to come back and rebuild my image."

He wound up joining former Florida teammate Bryan Thomas at
North Alabama. Jenkins has spent the past two weeks in Florence
working out with his new teammates.

North Alabama coach Terry Bowden says Jenkins has fit in well.
