Eagles FS Malcolm Jenkins said that he would like to re-sign with Philadelphia to remain with the team on a long-term basis.
- The Eagles have recently given contract extensions to OT Lane Johnson, TE Zach Ertz, and DE Vinny Curry.
“Believe me, I’m waiting. I’m trying to get in line just like everybody else,” Jenkins on SiriusXM Radio, per Jeff McLane. “That’s something I can’t control. But I’m definitely interested in staying. I want to be in Philly long-term.”
Jenkins, 28, has one-year remaining on a three-year, $15.5 million contract he signed in 2014 and is set to earn $5 million next season.
