The Philadelphia Eagles announced Tuesday they will not exercise their 2020 contract option for safety Malcom Jenkins.

Jekins will be a free agent Wednesday when the 2020 League Year officially begins.

“Malcolm Jenkins has been an outstanding player for us and we are proud of everything he accomplished both on and off the field during his time in Philadelphia,” the team said in a statement.

Jenkins was a 2009 first round draft picked and was picked up by the New Orleans Saints where he would play for five years. He signed with the Eagles as a free agent prior to the 2014 season and made three Pro Bowls in his six seasons with the Eagles.
