5 great photos of... Malcolm Jenkins

The renaissance man

NFL: Super Bowl LII Champions-Philadelphia Eagles Celebration Courier-Post-USA Today Network

We get access to a lot of photos here at BGN. Unfortunately, we don’t get to use them all. Some don’t work as lead photos, some get uploaded well after the event, and some just get lost in the shuffle. So I thought from now until training camp, we should show them off, even if we have used them before.

This week, it’s Malcolm Jenkins, a great player, a great leader, a great role model, and a great eye for fashion. Is there anything he can’t do?

Good secondaries are called “no fly zones” but this one is a bit literal.

I like a good “take the field” photo. This one, from the Bears game, stuck out to me for a couple of reasons. Behind Jenkins are his teammates in the secondary, illustrating his leadership. I love the brooding glare he has, and the glare of the sun in the corner.

I like this because of the duality of emotions shown. The huge distance between the foreground and the background stands out to me.

There are plenty of photos of Jenkins’ great hit on Brandin Cooks, and it was tough to settle on just one. The ground level angle and Cooks’ feet off the ground rise it above the rest.

The photo of Sad Bill Belichick walking off while the Eagles celebrate is beautiful, hilarious, and iconic, but it’s not the only great schadenfreude photo. Sad Tom Brady is always a good picture, Jenkins looking like he’s trolling him deserves to be shared.
