Ex-Eagle Cullen Jenkins agrees to deal with Giants
The New York Football Giants released one defensive lineman earlier this off-season and have agreed to a deal with former Philadelphia Eagles Cullen Jenkins.
On Feb. 6, it was announced the Giants had released defensive lineman Chris Canty and they found their replacement in a former foe.
The deal with Jenkins is worth $8 million, with a little more than $3 million guaranteed, over three years and includes a $2 million signing bonus, ESPN is reporting.
Jenkins played seven years for the Green Bay Packers before signing with the Eagles before the 2011 season. The two sides agreed to a five-year deal worth $25 million but he was cut after only his second season with the franchise.
According to the New York Daily News, the Giants visited Jenkins after he was released by the Eagles and he decided to sign with them after discussions with the Seattle Seahawks, San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders.
Jenkins came into the league in 2004 as an undrafted free agent with the Green Bay Packers. The nine-year veteran has made 260 total tackles and 38.5 sacks in his career.
