With incentives reached, it could push the deal to $35 million. He’ll make $16.25 million in guaranteed money.

He became available on Tuesday when the Philadelphia Eagles announced that they were declining his option for the 2020 season. During the meeting, the Eagles said that they wanted to keep him.

However, he wanted more money than his option was worth at $7.6 million. And at the end of the season, he said trade me or pay me.

According to NBC Philadelphia’s John Clark, Jenkins wanted a better contract. Rotoworld reported that he wanted $14 million annually.
