Eagles lock up Malcolm Jenkins to four-year contract extension
The Philadelphia Eagles locked up safety Malcolm Jenkins to a four-year contract extension. He's now under contract through the 2019 season. The Pro Bowl selection was entering the final year of a three-year, $15.5 million contract he outplayed in Philadelphia after starting his career with the New Orleans Saints. Jenkins follows deals for tight end Zach Ertz, offensive trackle Lane Johnson and defensive end Vinny Curry. Defensive lineman Fletcher Cox is up next. Jenkins, 28, led the team in tackles each of the past two years and forced the most turnovers last season.
