Philadelphia Eagles S Malcolm Jenkins was part of a package the team used in attempt to acquire former New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks before he was traded to the New England Patriots. The Eagles offered Jenkins, a 2017 third-round pick and a 2017 fourth-round pick, but the Saints wanted a second-round pick plus Jenkins.
Huddle Up: The Saints ultimately settled on a first- and third-round pick from the Patriots in exchange for Cooks and a fourth-rounder. Especially considering how deep this year's draft is and the fact Jenkins spent the first five years of his career in New Orleans, it is a bit hard to believe the Saints accepted the Patriots' offer over the Eagles'. Nevertheless, Cooks should be a solid albeit slightly inconsistent WR2 in fantasy with New England in 2017.

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton said the team will use CB Malcolm Jenkins at cornerback and safety this season, reports Mike Triplett, of the New Orleans Times Picayune.
Huddle Up: Jenkins' versatility will make him a valuable member of the Saints' secondary, as safeties who can cover allow more flexibility in coverages and blitzes. A full-time move to safety once Darren Sharper's Saints' career is over wouldn't be all that surprising.
