The Philadelphia Eagles and Pro Bowl Safety Malcolm Jenkins have agreed to terms on a new five-year deal.

On Monday, the Eagles and Jenkins agreed to terms on a new contract that will keep Jenkins in Philadelphia through the 2020 season.

Jenkins' new contract is the fifth multi-year deal signed by Eagles in recent weeks, joining tight ends Zach Ertz and Brent Celek, tackle Lane Johnson and defensive end Vinny Curry.

For as much as he's accomplished on the field, the Pro Bowler has had a major impact in the community off the field.

The Eagles explain: "The Malcolm Jenkins Foundation has held a number of different community events over the past two years, offering school uniforms and supplies, healthy food and more to those in need in the Philadelphia area."
