NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Eagles FS Malcolm Jenkins' new five-year deal is worth $40.5 million, and includes $21 million guaranteed.
The deal boosts Jenkins' 2016 salary from $5.5 million to $10 million, and includes $35 million in new money. It's a just reward for a safety who was arguably the league's best in 2015, and has played more snaps than any other player over the past two years. Jenkins added slot corner to his repertoire in '15. Although he's headed into his eighth year in the NFL, Jenkins is still only 28. Feb 22 - 3:04 PM

Eagles signed FS Malcolm Jenkins to a four-year extension through 2020.

One of the league's best safeties in 2015, Jenkins was set to make $5.5 million in the final season of a three-year deal he signed in March 2014. The pact will likely lower his $7.2 million cap number. Headed into his age-28 campaign, Jenkins probably won't repeat his monster 2015, but has become much more consistent over the course of his seven-year career. The Eagles continue to aggressively lock up players from the Chip Kelly era when it initially appeared they might be keen to change gears completely.

Eagles FS Malcolm Jenkins has been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 13.

Signed to a three-year, $15.5 million contract two offseasons ago, Jenkins has more than paid off while more high-profile free-agent signings have flopped in Philadelphia. Through 13 weeks, Jenkins is Pro Football Focus' No. 2 overall safety behind Dolphins SS Reshad Jones and No. 2 cover safety behind Charles Woodson. Jenkins has missed just two snaps all year. In the upset win over the Patriots last Sunday, Jenkins was nails against the run and returned a rare Tom Brady interception 99 yards for a touchdown.

Eagles FS Malcolm Jenkins (concussion) was back at practice Thursday.

The Philadelphia Inquirer's Zach Berman reported Jenkins "appeared to be a full participant." He is now on track to play this weekend. Jenkins suffered a concussion in the second quarter of the win over the Cowboys, but he did not tell the medical staff until after the game. That fact will likely warrant an investigation by the NFLPA.

Eagles FS Malcolm Jenkins is in the league's concussion protocol.

He suffered the brain injury in Sunday night's win over the Cowboys. Easily the Eagles' best defensive back, Jenkins' loss would be a big one for the Week 10 date with the Dolphins. Jenkins is Pro Football Focus' No. 2 overall safety through nine weeks, trailing only Vikings FS Harrison Smith.

Eagles signed S Malcolm Jenkins to a three-year, $16.25 million contract.

The deal includes $8.5 million guaranteed. Jenkins is far from spectacular, but he's a massive upgrade on the dumpster fire that has been the Eagles' safety spot ever since Brian Dawkins left. The 26-year-old is capable of playing both safety positions, slot corner and even outside corner in a pinch. Jenkins isn't Jairus Byrd as Eagles fans wanted, but he projects to provide better value.

ESPN.com's Mike Rodak lists the Bills as a possible landing spot for free agent FS Malcolm Jenkins.

Coming off a down season, Jenkins could be a low-cost option to replace Jairus Byrd. He figures to command $4-5 million annually on a multi-year deal. The Bills have only 2013 fourth-rounder Duke Williams and Da'Norris Searcy as candidates to start opposite Aaron Williams.

The Philadelphia Inquirer suggests free agent FS Malcolm Jenkins as a target for the Eagles.

Safety has been the biggest hole on the Eagles roster since Brian Dawkins left. They've missed in the draft (Nate Allen, Jaiquawn Jarrett) and missed in free agency (O.J. Atogwe, Pat Chung), leading to an annual leaky secondary. Jenkins, a converted corner, won't break the bank but would be an upgrade on the hideous four-headed monster of Allen, Chung, Kurt Coleman and Colt Anderson.

ESPN Saints blogger Mike Triplett doesn't expect the team to pay very much to retain free agent FS Malcolm Jenkins.

Triplett suggests anything above $3 million annually would price Jenkins out of the Saints' plans. The top safeties in the NFL are paid around $7-8 million per year. While Jenkins isn't in that tier, he should be able to get close to $4-5 million annually on a multi-year deal. Jenkins is our No. 7 free-agent safety.

Saints FS Malcolm Jenkins plans to begin participating in OTAs next week.

Jenkins has been limited to individual drills as he works through a hamstring injury. Like all players during the offseason, Jenkins is "just being smart with it," but plans to be ready next week.

FS Malcolm Jenkins insists he's fine with the Saints using their first-round pick on Texas S Kenny Vaccaro.

Jenkins has made it a point not to treat Vaccaro's arrival the way Reggie Bush did Mark Ingram's in 2011. Bush infamously tweeted "It’s been fun New Orleans" after the Saints took Ingram with the No. 28 pick. "It makes it an awkward situation in the locker room," Jenkins said. Jenkins is coming off a horrific season, but his roster spot appears to be secure. GM Mickey Loomis has said Jenkins could see snaps in the slot as a way to get him on the field at the same time as Vaccaro and Roman Harper.

Saints FS Malcolm Jenkins triggered an escalator in his rookie deal, raising his 2013 salary from $2.264 million to $2.414 million.

Jenkins started 13 games in 2012 and racked up a career-high 94 tackles before landing on injured reserve with a hamstring injury. However, he and teammate Roman Harper graded out as Pro Football Focus' two worst safeties on the season as the New Orleans defense was historically awful. Jenkins enters the final year of his deal and will have to learn the 3-4 defense.

Saints placed FS Malcolm Jenkins (hamstring) on season-ending injured reserve.

Jenkins has started every game this season for New Orleans, but he was forced to leave last week's contest against the Giants with the injury. It's been a terrible year for Jenkins on the field. He's graded out as Pro Football Focus' second-worst safety out of a qualifying 86 players. Isa Abdul-Quddus will get the final three starts at free safety.
Sat, Dec 15, 2012 04:13:00 PM

Saints FS Malcolm Jenkins (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 15.

Jenkins left the game early in last week's loss to the Giants and did not practice all week. Second-year pro Isa Abdul-Quddus will likely get the nod to start for Jenkins.

Saints FS Malcolm Jenkins looks like a special talent in this year's training camp.

Veteran DE Alex Brown calls Jenkins one of three special players he's played with in his career, along with Brian Urlacher and ex-Titans pass rusher Jevon Kearse. OC Gregg Williams has offered similar praise, suggesting Jenkins has the desire and work ethic of a player set on becoming an all-time great.
