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.

FS Malcolm Jenkins insists he's fine with the Saints using their first-round pick on Texas S Kenny Vaccaro.
Jenkins has made it a point not to treat Vaccaro's arrival the way Reggie Bush did Mark Ingram's in 2011. Bush infamously tweeted "It's been fun New Orleans" after the Saints took Ingram with the No. 28 pick. "It makes it an awkward situation in the locker room," Jenkins said. Jenkins is coming off a horrific season, but his roster spot appears to be secure. GM Mickey Loomis has said Jenkins could see snaps in the slot as a way to get him on the field at the same time as Vaccaro and Roman Harper.

Saints FS Malcolm Jenkins triggered an escalator in his rookie deal, raising his 2013 salary from $2.264 million to $2.414 million.
Jenkins started 13 games in 2012 and racked up a career-high 94 tackles before landing on injured reserve with a hamstring injury. However, he and fellow safety, Roman Harper, graded out as Pro Football Focus' two worst safeties on the season as the New Orleans defense was historically awful. Jenkins enters the final year of his deal and will have to learn the 3-4 defense.

Saints placed FS Malcolm Jenkins (hamstring) on season-ending injured reserve.
Jenkins has started every game this season for New Orleans, but he was forced to leave last week's contest against the Giants with the injury. It's been a terrible year for Jenkins on the field. He's graded out as Pro Football Focus' second-worst safety out of a qualifying 86 players. Isa Abdul-Quddus will get the final three starts at free safety.

Saints FS Malcolm Jenkins left Monday night's game with a third-quarter shoulder injury.
Jenkins held the arm as he made his way off the field and appears to be dealing with a stinger. Perhaps New Orleans' best all-around defensive back, Jenkins probably won't return and may not play again until the postseason.

Saints FS Malcolm Jenkins looks like a special talent in this year's training camp.
Veteran DE Alex Brown calls Jenkins one of three special players he's played with in his career, along with Brian Urlacher and ex-Titans pass rusher Jevon Kearse. OC Gregg Williams has offered similar praise, suggesting Jenkins has the desire and work ethic of a player set on becoming an all-time great.
