Malcolm Jenkins wants more from NFL: ‘Tokenism really doesn’t mean that much’

USA Today

As Malcolm Jenkins rounds the home stretch of his stellar playing career, the resume for the 32-year-old New Orleans Saints strong safety continues to grow.

It already includes two Super Bowl victories, three Pro Bowl selections, nearly 900 tackles and seven pick-sixes, including one thrown by fellow social justice champion, Colin Kaepernick.

His on-field accomplishments are rock solid, but football fans oftentimes fail to remember some of the game’s most skilled players once they call it quits.

However, it’s not likely Jenkins will meet that same fate.

That’s because he’s also established himself as one of the league’s most active and ardent fighters for social justice. It’s a calling which he sees continuing long after his playing days are over.
