Redskins released DL Cullen Jenkins.

Signed Monday, Jenkins lasted less than a week in Washington. It is possible the veteran is brought back after contracts guarantee Week 1, but the 35-year-old is near the end of the line.
Sep 3 - 9:48 AM

Redskins signed DL Cullen Jenkins to a one-year contract.

He worked out for the team Monday morning. Jenkins has spent his last five seasons in the NFC East, playing two years with the Eagles before joining the Giants for the last three. The 35-year-old's play started to decline last season, but he still can offer some pass-rush push from the inside.

ESPN 980 Washington's Chris Cooley reports the Redskins will work out veteran DT Cullen Jenkins.

This is the first sniff of interest we have seen in the 35-year-old tackle this offseason. Jenkins recorded nine sacks in three years with the Giants at his last stop, but he does have much left in the tank. If Washington is interested, they could wait until after veteran salaries guarantee Week 1.

Giants DT Cullen Jenkins has seen snaps at defensive end this offseason.

A pocket-pushing interior lineman, Jenkins has lined up at defensive end on passing downs during the Giants' offseason program. At best a rotational lineman, the added versatility could allow Jenkins to stick on the final roster. Jenkins recorded one sack on 366 snaps last season.

The Giants and DT Cullen Jenkins agreed to restructure his contract, clearing $825,000 against the salary cap.

Jenkins, 34, was originally scheduled to count $2.917 million against the cap and was in danger of potentially losing his roster spot. He started 11 games this past season as the pocket-pushing interior lineman next to NT Johnathan Hankins. Jenkins is a part-time rotational player at this stage of his career.

Giants declared DT Cullen Jenkins (calf) inactive for Sunday's Week 11 game against the 49ers.

Jenkins returned for 18 snaps last week, but can't get over his calf issue. There are no surprises in any of the Giants' inactives Sunday: LB Jacquian Williams, CB Mike Harris, G Brandon Mosley, G Adam Snyder, DE Kerry Wynn, T James Brewer. Geoff Schwartz (toe) remains on IR with a designation for return.

Giants DT Cullen Jenkins (calf) is active for Sunday's Week 10 game at Seattle.

Jenkins misses just one week with his injury and is back to try to help slow down Marshawn Lynch. The Giants also have CB Chykie Brown up. Their inactives: Rashad Jennings, Mike Harris, Kerry Wynn, Adam Snyder, James Brewer, Brandon Mosley and Jay Bromley.

Giants DT Cullen Jenkins left Sunday's Week 7 game at Dallas with a calf injury.

Jenkins went down in the second quarter and is doubtful to return.

The Giants may move DT Cullen Jenkins to defensive end in 2014.

Jenkins has played end before, although only in 3-4 schemes. The Giants run a 4-3 under coordinator Perry Fewell. The move would likely be designed to offset free agent LE Justin Tuck's departure, with Jenkins presumably kicking inside on all passing downs. He's a much better interior pass rusher.

Giants DT Cullen Jenkins is in a walking boot Monday.

"I think just a little tendon something, knee and Achilles," Jenkins said. "Hopefully like I said, just a couple days, get this thing treated, and get back going." Jenkins is a key part of the Giants' defensive tackle rotation. All four of Jenkins, Mike Patterson, Linval Joseph, and Shaun Rogers have received positive grades from Pro Football Focus through four weeks.

Giants signed DT Cullen Jenkins to a three-year, $8 million contract.

The deal includes $3 million guaranteed. Although Jenkins is wearing down at age 32, he still recorded 30 quarterback pressures and four sacks for the Eagles a year ago. In New York, he'll slide right in as a starter next to Linval Joseph, filling Chris Canty's shoes. Jenkins' arrival is a boost to a Giants pass rush that already has DEs Jason Pierre-Paul and Justin Tuck in place.

The Packers are reportedly not interested in bringing back free agent DL Cullen Jenkins.

Around 6PM ET Sunday, Jenkins tweeted "Next chapter beginning??? I think so." Perhaps he's reading Fifty Shades of Grey -- or close to signing with a new team. There are as many as six teams in the mix for the versatile interior lineman, but none are the Packers. Jenkins spent the first seven years of his career in Green Bay before becoming part of the Eagles' failed "Dream Team" experiment.

Free agent DL Cullen Jenkins is scheduled to visit the Raiders Wednesday.

Jenkins is making use of his time in the Northwest. He also visited the Seahawks on Monday and the 49ers Wednesday following last week's meeting with the Giants. Jenkins' ability to rush the passer from the interior is appealing.

Free agent DL Cullen Jenkins is scheduled to visit the Seahawks on Monday and 49ers on Tuesday.

Jenkins met with the Giants on Friday, and is reported to have as many as six possible suitors. According to Pro Football Focus, Jenkins recorded 30 quarterback pressures last season, four of which he converted for sacks.
