The Saints continue to make free agency moves. Ian Rapoport is reporting the Saints tend to sign Jenkins, as the two work together on finalizing a deal.
Jenkins last played for the Saints in 2014 and joined the Eagles the following season. Jenkins was apart of the 2009 Saints squad that won the Superbowl over the Colts.
Sean Payton over the years has claimed letting go of Jenkins was the biggest mistake the team had made over the course of his head coaching tenure. Jenkins has made three Pro Bowls in 2015, 2017 and 2018.

When Jenkins and the #Eagles said goodbye, the #Saints made sense as the likely landing spot. New Orleans rights an old wrong. And now, with Jenkins’ signing, FA Vonn Bell leaves New Orleans in search of a new home. https://t.co/kEWssrTjdD
