The Philadelphia Eagles signed defensive end Cullen Jenkins to a five-year $25 million contract in the offseason.  On the first day of the new league year,  the Eagles will owe Jenkins a $5 million roster bonus,  and right now it looks like they’re not sure if they’ll pay it. If the Eagles decide to not pay Jenkins,  he would then become a free agent and the Eagles wouldn’t have to take any type of salary cap hit.  They would also then save $7.75 million in cap room.  The added cap room will help the Eagles sign wide receiver DeSean Jackson to a new deal. The one team that would really be interested in getting Jenkins back,  would be the Green Bay Packers.  It seems they regret letting him go in free agency,  since they had the money to pay him the $25 million contract that the Eagles gave him. As we get closer to the offseason,  Jenkins will be someone to keep an eye on,  since he might be one and done in Philly and on his way back to Green Bay.

  • Where is the back of this because it is completely unbelievable. Why would the Eagles get rid of their best DT when he is only making 25 mil for 5 years?
  • The Eagles have been looking for THIS type of DT play since the death of Jerome Brown. Andy Harmon was a heck of a pass rusher, and Corey Simon had a couple good years too. However NEITHER man was as good against the run AND the pass as Jenkins is.

    He'll be back.
