Changes in Philadelphia are officially underway.
The Eagles announced on Monday that they have released veteran defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins.
“I had a chance to speak with Cullen today and let him know of our decision,” GM Howie Roseman said, via PhillyMag.com. “It’s one of the most difficult parts of the job. He has been a very productive player in this league for a long time but we felt it in our team’s best interests that we go in a different direction. By releasing him at this point, it gives he and his agent more time to sign on with another team. We wish Cullen and his family all the best as he continues his NFL career.”
Signed to a five-year, $25 million deal 2011 as part of the "dream team" class, Jenkins registered 9.5 sacks in his two seasons with the Eagles. The 32-year-old was due a $1 million roster bonus next month (and $5.5 million in 2013), prompting the cap-strapped club to pull the trigger.
