Free Agency is heating up, with a blow for the New England Patriots in their search for additional help rushing the passer.
NYG have signed DT Cullen Jenkins to a three-year deal for $8 million, $3 million guaranteed. Nice pickup.

Which sucks. I may be wrong, but I think the New York Giants have made an absolute steal with this signing. Cullen Jenkins was definitely a Free Agent I would have loved the Patriots to sign:
He's 32, so he's still got a bit left in the tank (he only got cut by the Philadelphia Eagles because he no longer fitted their scheme).
He's a Defensive Tackle who is certainly able to rush the passer, which certainly would have made him and Vince Wilfork, a prominent run stopper, quite the combination.
And at that money, he wouldn't have taken a huge hit on our cap for a guy who can have an immediate impact on the team.
The rich have gotten richer. Aren't Jason Pierre-Paul and Justin Tuck enough for tho...
