Eagles’ Malcolm Jenkins responds to Orlando Scandrick ripping Philly organization
Former Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Orlando Scandrick made headlines with his criticism of general manager Howie Roseman and safety Malcolm Jenkins following his recent release from the team. Jenkins has since offered his response.
Scandrick indicated that Jenkins has problems with taking accountability for his mistakes. The veteran since shared some choice words regarding the comments made by his former teammate, via Mike Kaye of NJ Advance Media:
“I really give two sh**s about people who ain’t here,” Jenkins said in the Eagles’ locker room. “You can ask anyone in the locker room — who I am as a player, who I am for this team — I think one of the things he said was I don’t take accountability for certain plays, which if anybody looks at any of my comments, I immediately take credit for the mistakes I make.”
“For us to move on as a team, we can’t have motherf***ers like that in the room,” Jenkins said.
It is safe to say that there is no love lost between these two former teammates. Scandrick had not been in Philadelphia very long after appearing in three games before being released for a second time. Regardless, it is safe to say that his comments did not sit well with Jenkins.
Although Scandrick’s criticisms may seem like just a bitter attempt to get back at the team, there is no denying that the Eagles still have plenty of issues. Among their notable shortcomings in the 2019 NFL season have been the porous secondary led by Jenkins. As a result, there has been plenty of speculation regarding whether or not they will make a move with the Oct. 29 trade deadline quickly approaching.
For now, Jenkins will have to find a way to help lead a potential resurgence before their season starts to fall by the wayside.
