Safety Malcolm Jenkins made an instant impact on the Eagles’ defense after being signed to a contract during the 2014 offseason. On Monday, the Eagles and Jenkins agreed to terms on a new five-year deal, a contract that will keep Jenkins in Philadelphia through the 2020 season.
Jenkins was under contract for this season, so technically it’s a four-year extension. We’ll update when the terms (guaranteed money) are released. But Jenkins carried a cap hit of $7.1 million this year, so it’s likely that got significantly reduced. Howie strikes again?
UPDATE: And here comes Joe Banner over the top:
I know I keep saying the same thing, but the price of safeties is going to reset in a few weeks, why would any agent do a deal now.
