New Malcolm Jenkins deal worth up to $40.5 million

The Eagles announced a contract extension with safety Malcolm Jenkins on Monday, something that many expected to happen as Jenkins moved into the final year of his deal after an excellent 2015 season.

That deal called for Jenkins to make $5.5 million and, according to multiple reports, the extension will add $35 million to that total. Jenkins now stands to make $40.5 million over the life of the deal and his salary for the 2016 season will jump up to $10 million.

Reports also peg the guarantees in the deal at $21 million with Joel Corry of reporting that $16 million is fully guaranteed at signing.

Those numbers bump Jenkins up to the top tier of NFL safeties and the Eagles surely hope that his play will continue to put him there on the field as well. Jenkins is the fifth player to sign a new deal with the team since the end of the season with defensive end Fletcher Cox a likely sixth addition to the list based on word from the team.

    Did Chip Kelly make this contract? Holy crap what a bad contract for that team.

    That’s a great deal. One of the most underrated safeties in football. Covers receivers and tight ends and running backs alike very well.

    Plays like a corner, but can be all over the field. Glad to have him in Philly. Now if only we had a cornerback in front of him…

    Dudes top tier. Key2heat–ask any saints fan if they think the eagles got hosed. Then ask eagles fans. Worth every penny.

    As an Eagles fan, I am happy to see them paying to lock up existing players. While the schemes may change, at least you know the player from how he is in the locker room, practice, and his character in general. Contrast that with last year’s big signings (Murray, Maxwell) and I’ll take this offseason every time.

    Man, the Eagles have never won a Super Bowl. Even scrub teams like the Saints, Bucs and Seahawks managed to get one.

    Bwahahahahhaha! Dude never wraps up, dives at the feet with his head down and has NO football instincts! Epically bad extension. Beagles will never win a Super Bowl. Dopes.
