Eagles release DT Jenkins

PHILADELPHIA - The Eagles have released defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins.

Jenkins signed with the Eagles during the 2011 offseason and started all 32 regular season games over the last two years. The 32-year-old Jenkins spent his first seven seasons of his career with the Green Bay Packers.

“I had a chance to speak with Cullen today and let him know of our decision,” said Eagles general manager Howie Roseman. “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.”
