Just how important Jenkins is to the Eagles was on full display last season, when he played nine different positions and more than 1,015 snaps for the Eagles. He lined up in the box, at slot corner, at free safety, all over special teams, and even registered some snaps that qualified as being along the defensive line, according to Pro Football Focus.
To put into perspective just how versatile Jenkins was to the Eagles, he played 266 snaps at cornerback last season. No actual cornerback played more than 372 in coverage, meaning Jenkins — the team’s starting safety — played almost as much at cornerback as the team’s actual cornerbacks did while also playing safety. Only three safeties and 32 cornerbacks in the entire NFL spent more time in the slot than Jenkins did.
