Six years have passed since the Philadelphia Eagles‘ memorable 2017 Super Bowl journey, and now one of the cherished Eagles players from that era is making a return to Lincoln Financial Field this Thursday. Malcolm Jenkins, a pivotal figure in their championship-winning season, will assume the role of the Eagles’ honorary captain for their Week 2 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings.
Jenkins dedicated six seasons to the Eagles, earning three Pro Bowl selections during his tenure. His last NFL appearance was in 2021 as a member of the New Orleans Saints.
Notably, Jenkins played a vital role in the historic 2017 NFC Championship Game between the Eagles and the Vikings. The Eagles delivered a resounding 38-7 victory, etching one of the most iconic moments in Philadelphia sports history, if not the absolute pinnacle.
Recognizing Jenkins’ contributions is well-deserved; he was widely regarded as the heart and soul of the Eagles during that era, and his efforts were instrumental in bringing a triumphant parade down Broad Street.
