Giants Beef Up Line By Signing Cullen Jenkins
Added by Paul Conroy on March 11, 2013.
The New York Giants reinforced the interior defensive line on Sunday, signing Cullen Jenkins to a three-year, eight million dollar deal. Jenkins was released by an Eagles’ team looking to free up some cap space, saving four million dollars by cutting the veteran.
The Giants gain a productive veteran at a reasonable price to add to their defensive line rotation, offsetting the loss of Chris Canty. Jenkins brings versatility to the table, with experience at both tackle and as a 3-4 defensive end, as well as experience with opposing NFC East teams. His interior pass rushing skills can go a long way in freeing up defensive ends for Big Blue.
