NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reports police are investigating “a possible strangulation/suffocation as the cause of death,” citing law enforcement sources. The deceased male was found in the basement by a person who was working on the house, TMZ reported.Multiple reports say Jenkins is not in New Jersey and has been staying in Florida.Jenkins, 29, is entering his third year with the Giants. The Pahokee, Fla., native played for Florida in college before finishing his career at North Alabama.–Los Angeles Rams chief operating officer and vice president Kevin Demoff said the team is “working on” an extension for defensive tackle Aaron Donald and hopes to have a deal done before training camp opens in late July.Donald, 27, missed the entirety of the Rams’ offseason workouts and practices as he seeks an extension entering the fifth-year option of his rookie contract. The reigning Defensive Player of the Year, Donald is set to make about $6.9 million in 2018. Von Miller is the NFL’s highest-paid defensive player at about $19 million annually.Donald held out of training camp last season while seeking an extension but showed up in time for Week 1. The coaches held him out until Week 2 as a precaution, rather than having him play so soon after returning.–Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers opened as a 13-2 favorite to be named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player in 2018 in Bovada’s initial odds, narrowly ahead of Tom Brady.
