Jenkins not happy with Pro Bowl voting

Terence Newman replaced Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on the Pro Bowl roster, but Mike Jenkins apparently wasn't thrilled that it wasn't him.  

"Yeah they obviously screwed me!" Jenkins said in a Twitter post on mikejenkins21.

Jenkins was the Cowboys' best cornerback, but Newman has more name recognition right now. That's the way the Pro Bowl works. It is a popularity contest. Jenkins will go to the all-star game so many times in his career that he'll probably one day be one of those guys who fudges an "injury" to get out of going.

In only his second year, though, Jenkins wants to be recognized as one of the best. And Jenkins arguably was the second-best cornerback in the NFC behind defensive player of the year Charles Woodson.
