“We’re a Pretty Good Distance From the Super Bowl” [AUDIO]
“We’re a pretty good distance from the Super Bowl.”
Those were the words from Eagles defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins, who joined the Sports Bash to talk about his new deal, the what went wrong with the 2011 Eagles, his hopes for 2012 and more with Mike Gill.
The Eagles agreed to a restructured contract with DT Cullen Jenkins on Monday. He was due a $5 million roster bonus on March 13, which on top of his $2.75 million base salary would have given him a prohibitive 2012 cap number of $7.75 million. Essentially playing on a one-year deal last season since the “five-year, $30 million” pact he signed in July was not guaranteed beyond 2011 and didn’t include a signing bonus, Jenkins performed well, notching 40 tackles and 5.5 sacks.
