By Associated Press 6:13pm, February 25, 2013The Philadelphia Eagles have released veteran defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins.
Jenkins signed a five-year, $30 million contract with the Eagles in 2011 and started every game the last two seasons. He was due to make $5.5 million this season, but rebuilding Philadelphia cut the 32-year-old Jenkins on Monday.
After spending the first seven seasons of his NFL career with Green Bay, Jenkins left for Philadelphia. He had 5 1-2 sacks in 2011 and four in 2012.
Eagles general manager Howie Roseman calls Jenkins "a very productive player in this league for a long time."
