Saints Nation: Saints finally ink Malcolm Jenkins to 5 year deal

The lengthiest draft hold out in the past decade for the Saints ended late last night, with the Saints signing first round pick Malcolm Jenkins to a 5 year contract (STORY). Jenkins showed up to practice this morning and was apparently hurting severely due to the heat and the coaches running him ragged. Welcome aboard, Malcolm! Better late than never and now roster is all aboard. Hopefully he can get caught up quickly.

In other news, Drew Brees is already back to practice this morning after his mother passed away. Quick trip for Brees to and from Colorado, where his mother lived, and he is of course practicing with a very heavy heart. Check back at Saints Nation for more later.
