he Eagles on Monday released veteran defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins, who was acquired in the disappointing summer signing spree that followed the 2011 lockout, CSN Philadelphia reports.
“I had a chance to speak with Cullen today and let him know of our decision,” general manager Howie Roseman said in a statement released by the team. “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.”
