Philadelphia Eagles Announce they are Parting Ways with Malcolm Jenkins
With no real sports news to report, major trades and contract adjustments have been the main focus as of late. One of the new moves the Philadelphia Eagles announced recently was their decision not to exercise the 2020 contract option for safety Malcolm Jenkins.
In a tweet the team acknowledged the player’s fantastic career with Philly but that a business decision between the team, Malcolm and Malcolm's agent, Ben Dogra, will have them parting ways after a six-year stint together.
Jenkins was all over the field last season, proving his abilities in nine different positions for over 1,015 snaps with the Eagles. His versatility is quantified by the fact that he played 266 snaps as a cornerback last season. This means Jenkins, the Eagles’ starting safety, played almost as much as cornerback as the team’s actual cornerbacks – while also playing safety.
94WIP host, Ike Reese gave his remarks on his show as a former Eagles.
"I never been more happier to be wrong about a player than I have about Malcolm Jenkins…Man, I'm so happy they brought Malcolm Jenkins here. We don't have that Super Bowl without Malcolm Jenkins,” Reese said on the 94WIP Marks & Reese Show.
