Last quote by Malcolm Jenkins

Only certain coaches get that. A lot of coaches come in and try to establish their way, their culture, what they want. A lot of times, you don't have the buy-in from your entire team, though. If you allow players to have that input and that ownership, everybody feels like this is our baby and everybody's fully invested. . . . That's just an environment that really allows everybody from your starters to your practice-squad guys to feel like their role is important.feedback

Malcolm Jenkins quotes

Oct 10 2017 - Trump Presidency

I think we've seen even over the last year that you can take a player out of the league, you can threaten to do whatever you want to do, that's not going to deter players from doing what's right, or doing what they believe is right. You might be able to change the manner in which that looks but I don't see players stopping their pursuit for justice or equality.feedback

Oct 10 2017

I don't think this would stop anybody from trying to push for change, push for justice. Players have always kind of moved around, found new ways.feedback

Oct 08 2017

I've heard people say that my colleagues and I are un-American and unpatriotic. Well, we want to make America great. We want to help make our country safe and prosperous. We want a land of justice and equality. True patriotism is loving your country and countrymen enough to want to make it better.feedback

Oct 01 2017

Turn your attention to the issues and work to be done across the country to improve the flawed justice system.feedback

Sep 25 2017

This is important work to us as citizens and we wanted to share what we are doing off the field.feedback

Sep 20 2017

We wanted to make sure that we sent those kids the message that it's okay to stand up for what you believe in. We didn't want them to walk away from the season feeling punished for trying to do the right thing. We wanted to make sure that was rewarded and acknowledged and encouraged, so that was our main motivation for helping.feedback

His positive attitude is something that's hard to find in a football locker room all year round. Jon's the guy who is constantly in a good mood, constantly joking around. He's just a good friend and obviously a guy who is going to be missed.feedback

Aug 23 2017

I think looking at the atmosphere compared to last year and what has transpired the stakes are almost higher.feedback

Aug 17 2017

As the blowback against those who stand up for what is right thickens, I feel it is necessary to push forward with a relentless determination. I want to send a message that we will not easily be moved or deterred from fighting for justice.feedback

Aug 17 2017

I haven't seen statistics, but I'd be willing to bet the vast majority of people voicing those white supremacist sentiments were from out of town. The majority of the people that were defending our hometown against ideals like that were from Charlottesville, or students. It's disheartening, but I really think it's desperation for those folks to feel threatened by us doing the right thing.feedback

Aug 17 2017

Last year, the people who were against Kaepernick were probably making the most noise, and now you have the reverse. So keeping him out of the league, you think that things are going to smooth over, but in actuality you're having a bigger uproar from people who want to see him have a job, especially if him not having a job is solely on his political stance.feedback

Aug 17 2017

What happened to Charlottesville, to me, was not a starting point. To me, that would not be the point in which somebody would start to do the protest. That was a result of years and years of frustrations and battles that have been going on for a long time. Those are just kind of the results of the existence of hate, racism and prejudices that have long plagued America. So I don't see people now trying to get involved in that, because if you hadn't seen a problem until the other day, then you've kind of been sleeping.feedback

Aug 15 2017

A lot of arguments you hear is, Do it on your own time. Do it in a different way. Well, the truth of the matter is, if you do it in a different way, that just allows you to ignore the issue. When you talk about real change, although a protest in itself doesn't change anything, it forces people to talk about it and tugs on the social conscience of the citizens. So that's the biggest thing, how to get this topic in the minds of all those around the country and make them confront their own beliefs and thoughts and reasonings behind what they support and what they don't.feedback

That message, to me, is loud and clear from owners as to where their priorities stand and how they go about picking and choosing who they want on their teams. It's definitely unfortunate, but it's shining a light on just how the NFL operates and what we deem is acceptable. It really has nothing to do with what's right or wrong, but what affects dollars. That's business as usual, but I think it's an unfortunate precedent to set.feedback

Aug 03 2017

Four months ago, there was a debate as to whether [Kaepernick] is talented enough or whatever. I think at this point in time, when you look at the quarterbacks who have jobs around the league, and the amount of owners and GMs who have only spoken of what fans would think about his stance. I think it's safe to throw out that talent argument, and basically focus on the fact that he doesn't have a job solely because he didn't stand for the anthem last year, even though he already expressed that he planned on standing this year.feedback

We wanted to make sure that we sent those kids the message that it's OK to stand up for what you believe in. We didn't want them to walk away from the season feeling punished for trying to do the right thing. We wanted to make sure that was rewarded and acknowledged and encouraged, so that was our main motivation for helping.feedback

Because some of these kids and coaches and youth teams don't have the same protections and securities that we have. And so I think it's definitely a responsibility to at least thoroughly explain why you demonstrated, why you're doing what you're doing, so that people understand the risks and consequences, and that you also encourage them and support them.feedback

Jun 22 2017

As role models, when you step out there and you demonstrate something, especially something as big as what happened last year with the protests in the NFL. ... I think it's definitely the responsibility of those out in front to think about the impact that it has on everyone behind them.feedback

Jun 02 2017

Now that you look back at the season and what's transpired since then, I think Colin Kaepernick's decision to kneel or take a seat or to protest the national anthem was genius and worked better than I think he even probably assumed at first. Because here we are a year later and it's still a topic of conversation, and it sparked a conversation that's been long-lasting. And since then, guys have really moved into action and have been doing a lot in the community.feedback

Jun 02 2017

It's not going to be about the lives that have been lost across the country, the injustices that are being done to minorities all across this country, that's not what's going to be in the headlines. It's going to be about him. Because we know that protesting and demonstrations don't fix the problem. They are part of the solution, they bring up the awareness, and now once you have everyone's attention, it's time for an education phase and for us to get out and actually push and move to action.feedback

Mar 30 2017

Our question is, if there is so much support and everyone agrees and knows the statistics about how our justice system is not giving them justice, then what is holding them back?feedback

Mar 28 2017

Football is easier than doing this. You've got to do the research, and you've got to come prepared. And when you're speaking on behalf of other people, you want to make sure you bring the right voice to the table. We get access to videos and it's on the news and people are starting to see what this looks like. And now those who weren't exposed to it before are forced to choose a side, and forced to deal with this issue. And that is what's dividing our country. The problem has been there. And it's always been there. But it's becoming harder for us to sweep it under the rug.feedback

Dec 23 2016

I want to be wherever the ball is. If I play deep too long a lot of times, I get bored.feedback

Dec 23 2016

We've been in a slide and things haven't been going our way, so we wanted to show up and compete. A lot of guys stepped up. We came up with big stops. It was a huge win for us. Guys showed up today.feedback
