The Philadelphia Eagles have announced that they have restructured DT Cullen Jenkins current contract which will allow him to stay in Philly for the foreseeable future.
Rumors had been circulated that the Eagles could have cut Jenkins because of his $5 million roster bonus that he was due. The idea sounded strange because Jenkins put together a great season for them that has him play in all 16 games and become one of their defensive leaders.
“We are very excited about having Cullen back on our football team,” said Eagles G.M. Howie Roseman. “Cullen made an immediate impact for us this year on and off the field. We look forward to a great future together with him an Eagles uniform.”
Jenkins, 31, has been a solid force in at defensive tackle for a number of years and his ability to rush the passing from the inside makes him a great asset for any defense. The Packers arguably missed him more than they thought they would last season so Philly is wise to keep him for at least a few more years.
