Eagles S Jenkins fined for flipping off Payton


Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins has been fined $13,369 for making an obscene gesture to his former coach, New Orleans' Sean Payton, during the Saints' 48-7 drubbing of Philadelphia last Sunday, according to multiple reports.

The incident occurred when the Saints, leading by 31 points in the fourth quarter, went for it on fourth-and-6 and got a 37-yard touchdown pass from Drew Brees to Alvin Kamara -- with Jenkins defending on the play.

"I'm a competitor. I love Sean to death. I know what type of guy and coach he is. That was more so personal between me and him," Jenkins, who won a Super Bowl with Payton and the Saints as a 2009 rookie, told NBC Sports Philadelphia.

"We talked after the game. It's all good. I know Sean. They're going to go for it. I was more so upset that it was on me."

Kamara was fined $10,026 for a separate incident in the third quarter, when he tossed the ball at D.J. Alexander in response to getting pushed by the linebacker after a punt return.

Jenkins, 30, played for New Orleans for five seasons from 2009-13 before signing with Philadelphia. The two-time Pro Bowl selection won his second Super Bowl ring with the Eagles last season.

Payton said he elected to go for the first down on the play because he wasn't comfortable trying a field goal from that distance. He had nothing but good things to say afterward about Jenkins.

"I think the world of him. He's a tremendous player," Payton said. "I hate that he got out of here. That was probably as big a mistake as we've made here in 13 years. He's made up of all the right things, and he's a tremendous competitor."
