Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach Chip Kelly and the Eagles Front Office really know what they are doing. Signing Malcolm Jenkins was initially not received well by most Eagles fans. Most phanatics were optimistic that the Eagles would bring in a big named free agent Safety like Jarius Byrd or T.J. Ward. Subsequently both players sign with the New Orleans Saints and Denver Broncos respectively. Enter Malcolm Jenkins.
Trust Chip. Coach Kelly doesn’t just look at big name players, he looks at scheme fit, team fit, personality and franchise fit. While Jenkins had a rough season last year, ranking towards the bottom of the list in Safety production, I believe it was the new Saints Defensive scheme that played a large role in his rough year.
While we have only been able to watch Jenkins during OTA’s, Training Camp and 3 weeks of NFL Pre-Season, he has flashed and shown his skill, the skill that the Eagles and Head Coach Chip Kelly knew he had. Here are 3 reasons why Malcolm Jenkins was the right choice for the Philadelphia Eagles. View the other 3 pages to find out why.
