Jenkins (hamstring) returned to practice Saturday, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins had been dealing with a hamstring injury, and the Eagles chose to play it safe and sit the safety for the team's first preseason game. His return to practice signifies that Jenkins injury has at least mostly faded. Expect Jenkins to be ready for Week 1 as one of the best IDP options on the Eagles' roster.

Jenkins (hamstring) will not play in Thursday's preseason matchup with the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins has been out of practice for a week now, after suffering a hamstring injury last Thursday. He'll be held out of the team's preseason opener, but isn't expected to see a lengthy absence, so a return to practice in the near future isn't out of the question. Chris Maragos is expected to take his spot in the starting lineup for the time being.

Jenkins has signed a new five-year contract with the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins' new deal will keep him in Philadelphia through the 2020 season. After joining the Eagles last offseason, Jenkins went on to lead the NFL in snaps for a second straight campaign, registering 120 tackles, 15 passes defensed and three forced fumbles. Those career-best numbers earned Jenkins his first Pro Bowl selection, and now a long-term deal to solidify his future.

Jenkins finished 2014 with 80 tackles (64 solo) and three interceptions (one returned for a touchdown).

Jenkins was a mid-tier free agency pickup for the Eagles prior to this season, and the hope was that his cornerback/safety hybrid skill set would lend itself to improved coverage for the Eagles. The Eagles didn't get their wish, allowing 30 passing touchdowns while intercepting just 12 passes, but that poor production is correctly attributed to Nate Allen and Bradley Fletcher than Jenkins. Along with Fletcher, Cary Williams is also often a liability at one of the starting corner spots. In other words, demotions might occur in the Philadelphia secondary this offseason, but it won't be Jenkins who gets one. With that said, he doesn't appear to have much IDP potential in coordinator Billy Davis' scheme. Jenkins' 80 tackles led Philadelphia defensive backs this year, while Allen led the defensive backs with just 82 in 2013. Unless Jenkins goes on an interception tear in 2015 or Davis significantly alters his secondary schemes, it's hard to see Jenkins approaching more than DB3 consideration in most IDP formats.

ESPN.com's Mike Rodak lists the Bills as a possible landing spot for free agent FS Malcolm Jenkins.

Coming off a down season, Jenkins could be a low-cost option to replace Jairus Byrd. He figures to command $4-5 million annually on a multi-year deal. The Bills have only 2013 fourth-rounder Duke Williams and Da'Norris Searcy as candidates to start opposite Aaron Williams.

The Philadelphia Inquirer suggests free agent FS Malcolm Jenkins as a target for the Eagles.

Safety has been the biggest hole on the Eagles roster since Brian Dawkins left. They've missed in the draft (Nate Allen, Jaiquawn Jarrett) and missed in free agency (O.J. Atogwe, Pat Chung), leading to an annual leaky secondary. Jenkins, a converted corner, won't break the bank but would be an upgrade on the hideous four-headed monster of Allen, Chung, Kurt Coleman and Colt Anderson.

ESPN Saints blogger Mike Triplett doesn't expect the team to pay very much to retain free agent FS Malcolm Jenkins.

Triplett suggests anything above $3 million annually would price Jenkins out of the Saints' plans. The top safeties in the NFL are paid around $7-8 million per year. While Jenkins isn't in that tier, he should be able to get close to $4-5 million annually on a multi-year deal. Jenkins is our No. 7 free-agent safety.
