New Orleans Saints: 3 players that must live up to sky-high expectations in 2020
In his second stint with the New Orleans Saints, Malcolm Jenkins needs to shine.
Already creating news by calling out Drew Brees over his comments regarding the flag and now a CNN contributor as well, Jenkins will return to the field in a few short months with the goal of helping create the league’s most dominant secondary.
He joined the Saints from the Eagles. New Orleans added Jenkins but watched Vonn Bell head to Cincinnati. Jenkins will team up with Marcus Williams in the secondary.
The duo will be fun to watch. With high expectations for both, Jenkins has a four-year deal but the team will have an out after the second season. To keep his money rolling in, he’ll have to perform at the highest level.
Securing 81 combined tackles and 2.5 sacks last season to go along with 8 pass deflections, Jenkins will look to start all 16 games for the seventh season in a row. Jenkins’ rookie season, which he started six games, the Saints won the Super Bowl.
Hopefully, he can return that luck to the Big Easy.
