Just after the lockout ended in 2011, the Philadelphia Eagles went out and signed defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins to a five-year $25 million contract. Jenkins proved his worth during the 2011 season by playing very well and starting all 16 games. Jenkins' original contract was one set up that would force a renegotiation at this point, as Jenkins was set to receive $7.5 million as well as a $5 million roster bonus. Under the new deal, Jenkins has three years remaining on the contract while he will earn a baseball salary of $800,000 along with his $5 million roster bonus
"We are very excited about having Cullen back on our football team," said Eagles general manager 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 in an Eagles uniform."
Jenkins had 5.5 sacks during the 2011 season with 40 tackles and one fumble recovery.Tags: Cullen Jenkins, Football, Howie Roseman, NFL, Philadelphia, Philadelphia Eagles
