Saints News, 10/6/15: Malcolm Jenkins Says Facing Saints For First Time Will Be 'Bittersweet'

New, comments

From CBS Philly: “It will be nice to see a lot of the guys I haven’t seen in a while. On the other hand, I’m really looking forward for the opportunity to compete against them. It’s one of those things where it isn’t necessarily revenge, but I guess I want to play well against them. It’s one of those things where I know the type of guys that they are, and they know me. I never got a chance to play against Drew Brees, or Marques Colston. They’re the best and you always want to play against the best. Those are also guys I spend time with in the off-season. So it will be a lot of fun.”
