Second year defensive back making transition to safety

DB Malcolm Jenkins played in 14 games with six starts as a rookie in 2009. He recorded 51 tackles (41 solo) with one interception and five pass defenses. Jenkins was a special teams standout, making nine tackles and forcing two fumbles, one of which he recovered.

Jenkins has moved to the safety position this season and has splitting time with DB Usama Young in first team reps while DB Darren Sharper is on the PUP list.

Jenkins talked with NewOrleansSaints.com about his transition to safety, love for New Orleans and first experience in the Superdome.


Q: How has the move the safety been so far?


MJ: “It has been good. I think I have done a good job of just learning it and transitioning over to a new position. Now it is just about getting more reps and experiencing it.”



Q: How much does it help having a 14-year veteran in Pro Bowler Darren Sharper helping you along the way?

MJ: “He has been teaching me everything he knows. He has approached me and said ‘I am going to teach you everything I know, you just have to trust me.’ I am all ears when he talks. I hope to learn everything I can from him.”
