NFL East Notes: Malcolm Jenkins, Eagles, Redskins

Malcolm Jenkins

  • According to Jeff McLane of The Inquirer, Eagles’ veteran S Malcolm Jenkins has not attended the team’s voluntary activities and is working out at “unspecified” facilities around Philadelphia. 
  • McLane writes that it is “unclear” why Jenkins has been absent but points out that it does “raise concern” that Jenkins may want to restructure his contract. 
  • McLane also reports that Jenkins and his representation declined to be interviewed. 
  • McLane adds that the Eagles typically don’t add “new money” to contracts while Jenkins is only two years into his four-year contract. 
  • Should Jenkins demand more guaranteed money, McLane mentions that the Eagles could create cap space by restructuring the final two years of his deal, which is $11,387,000 in 2019 and $10,887,000 for 2020.
