Philadelphia Eagles: 5 tough decisions for 2020 offseason
By Dan Parzych
1. Can Eagles work out new deal Jenkins with Jenkins?
Since Malcolm Jenkins has already indicated his desire for a new deal before the 2020 season, one of the most difficult decisions for the Eagles this offseason will be whether they give in on the veteran safety’s demands.
From a leadership perspective, Jenkins has been one of the most valuable members to the defense since joining the team in 2014, and there’s no way Philadelphia would have won the Super Bowl a few years ago without his presence helping lead the way.
With Jenkins entering the final year of his contract next season, it’s easy to understand some of the frustration he’s feeling since it seems pretty obvious the safety has outplayed his current deal, and arguably deserved an extension a long time ago.
After the Eagles reached the playoffs for a third year in a row along with claiming their second NFC East title since 2017, making Jenkins should be a top priority since he is still managing to play on a high level.
Otherwise, an unhappy Jenkins could result in some unnecessary drama the Eagles don’t need to be dealing with this offseason, so here’s to hoping that Philadelphia eventually takes care of business sooner rather than later for the top safety.
