Eagles Release Cullen Jenkins

The Philadelphia Eagles released defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins on Monday, the team announced.

Jenkins was part of the Eagles’ free-agent spending spree in 2011 when he left the Green Bay Packers to join Philadelphia on a five-year, $25 million deal. The Eagles were labeled a “dream team” by then-backup quarterback Vince Young after the additions but stumbled to a disappointing 8-8 record that season.

He agreed to restructure his contract last offseason in order to stay with the Eagles. He was due to make $5.5 million this season.

Nnamdi Asomugha, another member of the “dream team” free-agent class, has been asked restructure his contract or he also will be released, league sources have told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. The two sides met Friday in Indianapolis at the scouting combine.
