Former Eagles defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins joined Mike Missanelli on 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia (via SportsRadioInterviews.com) and was asked if he was shocked when he found out he had been released by the Eagles. “I wouldn’t call it a shock but it’s a little surprising. I’ve been in the league long enough to know that the opportunity for it is there, especially with a new coaching staff, new schemes. They’re probably gonna go with the people they want to go or start off with, so you knew the possibility was there.” Jenkins said his time wasn’t easy. “It was rough. It was definitely a couple of the hardest years I’ve had in my career. Just so much expectations coming into a team that had such a great tradition and bringing in so many good players and people who they thought or were expected to perform and do well, and we weren’t able to accomplish anything. So it was definitely a disappointing two years.” Jenkins says they were never able to play as one unit. “We didn’t jell together enough. You can’t just always bring in a bunch of superstars — people who think they’re superstars. You gotta have players that just know their role and go along with that and just do whatever they can to help the team. We just didn’t jell the way that we needed to jell to be a successful team.”   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();
