Cullen Jenkins is sticking with the Eagles, on a restructured contract.
Jenkins, a defensive tackle who started all 16 games for the Eagles last season, signed a five-year, $25 million contract with the team seven months ago, shortly after the lockout ended. There was no immediate word on the specifics of his restructured deal.
“We are very excited about having Cullen back on our football team,” Eagles G.M. Howie Roseman said in a statement released by the team. “Cullen made an immediate impact for us this year on and off the field. We look forward to a great future together with him an Eagles uniform.”
Jenkins had a great start to the 2011 season, with four sacks in the first three games, although he had just 1.5 sacks the rest of the season.
