Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins: Paces team in tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins recorded eight tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 38-20 loss to the Vikings. He also defensed a pass and forced a fumble.

Sunday marked Jenkins' first game of the year with more than four tackles. Despite playing every snap on defense this season, the 31-year-old has logged just 26 tackles (20 solo). That's well off the pace of last year's 97 and more similar to his 2016 and 2017 seasons, campaigns when he logged 72 and 76 tackles, respectively.

Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins: Arrives for mandatory minicamp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins reported to the Eagles' practice facility Monday for mandatory minicamp, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Jenkins was not present for OTAs in May -- likely related to his desire for a new contract -- but his arrival for minicamp indicates he won't be holding out for a new deal. The 31-year-old has two years remaining on the four-year, $35 million extension he signed in 2016, but the spending spree at safety this offseason reset the market for the position. Jenkins has been an unquestioned leader of the defense and had 97 tackles (79 solo), one sack, one interception and three forced fumbles last season.

Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins: Skipping OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins' absence from OTAs may be related to his desire for a new contract, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Jenkins has two seasons remaining on a four-year, $35 million extension, with base salaries of $8.1 million in 2019 and $7.6 million in 2020. His deal put him near the top of the market for safeties at the time of signing, but the 2019 offseason reset the market with Tyrann Mathieu, Landon Collins and Earl Thomas each getting at least $13.75 million per year and $26.8 million guaranteed, per While his age likely will keep him out of that price range, the 31-year-old Jenkins hasn't shown any sign of slowing down, coming off a 2018 campaign with 97 tackles (79 solo), eight passes defensed, three forced fumbles and an interception in 16 games. He's played 98.4 percent of defensive snaps since joining the Eagles in 2014, displaying the versatility to play slot cornerback or even dime/nickel linebacker when needed. His absence won't be considered a holdout unless it extends to mandatory minicamp in mid-June.

Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins: Finishes season solidly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins, who racked up 10 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's 20-14 divisional-round loss to the Saints, finished the regular season with 97 tackles (79 solo), a sack, an interception and eight pass breakups.

While most of those numbers have been fairly standard for the 31-year-old over his past few seasons, the tackle total is a big jump up from the 76 he tallied in 2017 and tied for the team lead with Nigel Bradham. The Ohio State product hasn't missed a game in his five years with Philadelphia and should be locked in as the starting strong safety in 2019.

Jenkins recorded 11 tackles (nine solo) during Sunday's 29-23 loss to the Cowboys.

Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins: Records first sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins had two solo tackles and a sack in Monday's win against Washington.

Jenkins had his lowest tackle output of the season but compensated for it a bit by notching his first sack of the year. The veteran strong safety had 66 tackles (53 solo) with three forced fumbles, a sack and an interception heading into next week's game at Dallas.

Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins: Grabs first interception
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins had six tackles (five solo), an interception and a forced fumble in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Jenkins showed up as a playmaker late in the second quarter as he jarred the ball loose from Bennie Fowler -- unfortunately the ball bounced out-of-bounds before being recovered. He took a field-goal attempt away two plays later when he recorded the interception. The 30-year-old has 64 tackles (51 solo), three forced fumbles and an interception through 11 games, and has another divisional matchup with the Redskins next week.

Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins: Should play through wrist issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins was a full participant at Wednesday's practice despite a wrist injury, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Jenkins was a late addition to the injury report, but his full participation should quell any major concerns. The 30-year-old was sporting a wrap/light cast on his right wrist Wednesday, but the injury shouldn't affect his availability for Sunday's game at New Orleans.

Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins: Recovered from thumb surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (thumb) was a full participant during the Eagles' offseason program, Jimmy Kempski of reports.

Jenkins underwent surgery on one of his thumbs in March, but the procedure was never expected to keep him sidelined for long. The veteran safety will open training camp as the leader of the Eagles secondary after averaging 84 tackles and 10 pass breakups in his four seasons since arriving in Philadelphia.

Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins: Fails to score in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins finished the 2017 regular season with 76 tackles (63 solo), a sack, two interceptions and eight passes defensed across 16 games.

Jenkins played all 16 games for the fourth consecutive year. Perhaps this longevity helped get him elected to his second Pro Bowl because, statistically speaking, he virtually repeated his 2016 season. The only major difference was his failure to score a defensive touchdown, marking just the second of eight pro seasons in which he has failed to find the end zone. He is now on the wrong side of 30 and has limited upside in IDP leagues.

Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins: Active in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins picked up nine tackles (four solo) in the Eagles' 34-29 victory over the Giants on Sunday.

Jenkins' tackle total marked his highest since Week 7 and second biggest total of the season. The 29-year-old strong safety was one of three Eagles defenders to participate in all 88 defensive snaps. He figures to be in line for another heavy workload in the Eagles' Week 16 matchup against the Raiders, as the team hopes to lock up home field advantage for the playoffs.

Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins: Returns to practice Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (hamstring) returned to practice Saturday, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Jenkins had been dealing with a hamstring injury, and the Eagles chose to play it safe and sit the safety for the team's first preseason game. His return to practice signifies that Jenkins injury has at least mostly faded. Expect Jenkins to be ready for Week 1 as one of the best IDP options on the Eagles' roster.

Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins: Ruled out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (hamstring) will not play in Thursday's preseason matchup with the Buccaneers.

Jenkins has been out of practice for a week now, after suffering a hamstring injury last Thursday. He'll be held out of the team's preseason opener, but isn't expected to see a lengthy absence, so a return to practice in the near future isn't out of the question. Chris Maragos is expected to take his spot in the starting lineup for the time being.

Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins: Misses practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins missed Monday's practice due to a hamstring injury, Matt Lombardo of reports.

Jenkins went down with the injury last Thursday during practice and has not taken the field since. With Monday the team's last full practice session before the Thursday's preseason opener, the 28-year-old safety may be in danger of missing the contest.

Eagles FS Malcolm Jenkins earns kudos from coach
by Marty Gitlin |

Eagles free safety Malcolm Jenkins, whose thievery has resulted in one interception in each of the last three games, has earned the praise of Chip Kelly.

"We've said since day one, (he) can play anywhere," Kelly told Eagles Insider. "He's been unbelievable since he arrived here."

Jenkins has shown off his range this season. Each of his picks have been snagged on a different part of the field. The veteran has more interceptions in four games this year than he has in any of his five previous full seasons.
