The early Bye-week for the Eagles is a time for players to get away from Football and find some serenity before an intense 13 week stretch of consecutive hard-hitting games. For Safety Malcolm Jenkins however, it was a chance to give back.

Jenkins presented his alma mater with a generous donation of $250,000 in order to fund a new initiative he helped to create that will help current and former Ohio State student athletes.

As an Ohio State Senior, Jenkins recorded three interceptions en route to receiving the Thorpe Award and eventually being drafted by the New Orleans Saints.

Malcolm Jenkins is certainly a man of the people. Just last year he was named the NLFPA Community MVP after running his second “Blitz, Bow-Ties and Bourbon” event that raised close to $50,000.00 for the Malcolm Jenkins Foundation. The money, like the purpose of his foundation is to help better the lives of families and youth across Philadelphia, in partnership with “Feeding the Children”.

Jenkins already has eleven tackles in 2016 after coming off of a huge 2015 campaign. But the veteran Safety’s level of play on the field, is matched by his level of generosity off of it.
