The Eagles have agreed to terms with former Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. Details of the deal: three years, $16.25 million.

The former Saints first-round pick was allowed to hit free agency and will now join a Philly defense that ranked 23rd in the league a season ago (12th against the run, 25th against the pass), according to Football Outsiders.

And while the Eagles' safeties didn't fare particularly well in 2013 (Colt Anderson ranked 72, via ProFootballFocus, and Nate Allen and Kurt Coleman were 84th and 85th), Jenkins was dead last. Out of 88 safeties he was -- you guessed it -- 88.
