Jenkins spent most of his prime years in Philly. From 2014-’19, No. 27 was a constant presence in the Eagles secondary; a secondary that was mostly terrible outside of Jenkins for most of his tenure. He earned three Pro Bowl nods as an Eagle, and of course, he helped the team win their first Lombardi Trophy back in Super Bowl 52.
Who could ever forget this beaut.
The Philly faithful is going to be unhinged tomorrow night. Now that Jenkins is going to be in the house, The Linc will be dialed up to 100.
