Janoris Jenkins talked himself off the team.

The Pro Bowl cornerback, playing in the penultimate season of the five-year, $62 million contract he signed with the New York Giants in 2016, was waived Friday — a day after he defended the offensive language he used in a tweet in response to a fan earlier this week.

From the trainer's room Wednesday, while the rest of the team practiced, he tweeted "I can only do my job ... retard" in response to a fan's online criticism. Jenkins was hardly contrite and offered a hollowed apology when offered the chance to do so Thursday. The Special Olympics condemned the language.

Jenkins insisted the language was just "slang" and doubled down on his word choice.

On Friday, the Giants decided they had enough.

"Obviously, what happened this week, and the refusal to acknowledge the inappropriate and offensive language, was the determining factor," Giants coach Pat Shurmur said in a statement.

This wasn't the first time Jenkins ran his mouth in the wrong direction, as he has been openly critical of defensive coordinator James Bettcher's scheme.

The talking continued after the team announced his released. "Best news ever.. Thank you," Jenkins tweeted.

Over four seasons with the Giants (53 games), Jenkins snagged 12 interceptions and broke up 56 passes. His team-high four interceptions this year tied the career high he set in 2012 as a rookie with the St. Louis Rams.
