Good news for Packers’ Cullen Jenkins: His father has been found

NFC Championship Football

Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins revealed at this week’s Super Bowl Media Day that he was growing increasingly concerned about the status of his father, whom he hadn’t heard from since Christmas. But Jenkins got good news today.

A spokeswoman for the Honolulu Police Department told the Associated Press on Thursday that Jenkins’ father, Darome Jenkins, is safe and sound in Hawaii. Darome Jenkins has a residence in Hawaii, and police went there after media inquiries about him.

It’s not clear why Jenkins hadn’t contacted his two sons, Cullen and Jets defensive tackle Kris Jenkins.

“He went out to Hawaii,” Cullen told the Wisconsin State Journal this week, “and we haven’t heard from him since he went out there. It’s been a little over a month. . . . Obviously, you’re concerned for his safety, concerned about how he is, his state, everything.”

Darome Jenkins got sole custody of his two sons in 1981, when Cullen was 10 months old and Kris was 2, and raised them as a single father. Both players have cited their father’s tough love as a reason they became NFL players.

Cullen said this week that he has a ticket set aside and is still hoping his dad can make it to Dallas on Sunday for the Super Bowl.

    This was a rather disturbing story when you first ran it yesterday – I’m glad for Jenkins it turned out the way it did.

    I would hide also if my son played for the Packers.

    Sad. Their dad must have had a tough time raising 2 boys as a single parent but got through it. Now that his sons are adults and reaching success in the NFL, he has gone awol. Weird. I feel for Kris & Cullen because as a son, my goal was to always impress my parents and it seems that he has turned his backed on them during a proud moment in both their lives. How many NFL brothers have reached the Conference Championship games in the same year? Go to Dallas to Dallas dude. I assume Cullen would pick up the tab.

    jc1958coo – Is this really a topic worthy of your non-stop trash talk? I feel sorry for you, really.

    percyharvin, go bury your face in your legacy Bret Favre autographed jock strap.

    Two words: Hawaiian weed.
    Dude spent a lifetime successfully raising two sons. If he wants to retire and zone out for awhile, he’s earned it!

    I don’t know how to break this to you but you must have sex to have a son, I mean with someone other than your blowup girl friend.

    Didn’t see the original story, but glad to know Cullen’s father is safe and that this won’t be a distraction for him during his Super Bowl experience. Hope his father’s health is okay and that he’s able to come to the game and watch his son play.

    Not surpising, being the Queens #1 fan and all. If your son did indeed play for the Packers, this week would not only be a stark reminder of how hard your beloved Queens fell flat on their face in the NFC Championship last season, but would give you the additional agony of seeing him help your hated enemies toward winning a trophy your team will NEVER get their hands on.

    Enjoy living in the basement of the NFC North. You’ve earned it!

    I’ll bet pervyharvin fills that blow-up doll with helium and fantasizes that she’s Linda Blair.

    LOL Why would I need a blow up doll? You Lombardi losers are all my puppets. I pull the string and you dance for me. Thanks for the cheap entertainment.Saving my money for tomorrow,its 2 for 1 call girl night where I live.

    pervy pervy pervy…. now you make yourself so idiotic by admitting you have to pay for sex…. so sad….

    Someone found him on the beach partially covered in sand. Luckily there was an address sewn on his sleeve so they dropped him in the nearest mailbox.

    Is that the same pervy freak that admitted to hanging out in the guy’s can at Lambeau a few weeks ago? 2 for 1, huh, I’m guessing 7 teeth between them and plumbing down below that Brett Favre would be proud of. Congrats.

    The most hilarious part, beyond his closet lifestyle and infantile intellect, is that his team has gone supernova for years to come and he’s completely oblivious to it.

    But I guess to be a Viking “fan”, you have to somehow find a way.

    You didn’t know this already? pervy has admitted this fact many times, mostly though it has been with guys…

    It’s quite possible WHISKEY MAN is involved here to some extent. Most times when my pop dissapears, WHISKEY MAN is the primary reason. That whiskey is bad stuff

    “I would hide also if my son played for the Packers.”

    I would rather have my son play for a team that has 12 world championships rather than a losing, pathetic franchise like the Vikings.

    Pineapple express?

  27. notoriousbri says: Feb 4, 2011 9:11 AM

    Glad his Father is ok. Not knowing is always taxing on a person and playing in the biggest game of his life he doesnt need any added distractions.

    As a Viking fan Im actually rooting for the Packers this week. Nothing against the Steelers as they are a great team with great history, but I hate Favre, always have and always will and would love to see Rodgers hoist the trophy and stick it to #4

  28. bdickey33 says: Feb 4, 2011 9:26 AM

    Packerbacker12: Seriously? You need to talk about pre-Super Bowl times to make the Packers look good? You’re in the big game now embrace this season and not your pre-1967 8 team league dominance. LOL. WEAK!

  29. newreality1 says: Feb 4, 2011 11:33 AM

    I respect ANY man that raises two children. I hope the guy lives the rest of his days happy and healthy. Lives in hawai….. good for him.
