Malcolm Jenkins thinks Eagles fans are in for a treat this season -- 'cause the former Philly star tells TMZ Sports he's a big believer in Jalen Hurts ... and thinks the QB will help the team win the NFC East.
We spoke with Jenkins out at LAX this week -- just days ahead of the Eagles' season-opener against the Lions -- and he told us despite all of the criticism surrounding the team's QB heading into this year ... he doesn't share many of the same concerns at all.
"He's got everything he needs," said Jenkins, who won a Super Bowl with Philadelphia in the 2017 season. "He's got the leadership, the ability -- he's got the weapons around him. And this season is the year where we need to see it."
