NOLA.COM – Super Bowl rings: Malcolm Jenkins (again), Patrick Robinson
get theirs – (NOLA.COM)

One current New Orleans Saints player received a Super Bowl ring Thursday (June 14).

Patrick Robinson, a cornerback who played last season with the Philadelphia Eagles, rejoined his former teammates for a night of celebration as the team received the championship rings for defeating the New England Patriots last February.

Malcolm Jenkins, a safety, received a second Super Bowl ring after winning his first while a rookie with the Saints in 2009. Darren Sproles, another former Saints player, received his first.

Former LSU cornerback Jalen Mills and punter Donnie Jones also received their first Super Bowl rings during the ceremony. Jones, a punter for LSU on the 2003 team that won the national championship, retired after the Super Bowl.

The 10-karat white gold rings each had 219 total diamonds and 17 rare green sapphires, according to NJ.com.

Robinson first joined the Saints as a first-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, just months after they beat the Indianapolis Colts to win Super Bowl 44. He left after five seasons and played on season each with the San Diego Chargers and Indianapolis Colts before a career resurgence last year with the Eagles.

Robinson posted career highs last season in passes defensed (18) and interceptions (four). The Saints brought him back on a four-year, $20 million deal, and he’ll enter training camp in late July as the favorite to be New Orleans’ top inside cornerback in 2018.

The ring ceremony acted as a reunion of sorts, as Robinson was one of a handful of players who joined other teams during the offseason.

“I think it’s the last time we can celebrate,” Jenkins said, via NJ.com. “A lot of guys are going on to other teams and different things, so this is kind of one of the last opportunities we have to celebrate together. Guys are going to enjoy themselves, get the ring and celebrate a special team.”
