Eagles land Jenkins with five-year deal

UPDATE: The Eagles announced they traded DT Brodrick Bunkley to the Browns for a fifth-round draft pick in 2012 and agreed to a one-year deal with LB Akeem Jordan.

The Eagles continue to get it done in free agency.

Soon after a league source told me the Eagles had agreed to terms with DL Cullen Jenkins on Saturday, the team announced it as a five-year deal.

The Redskins and Cowboys previously had interest in Jenkins before going in different directions, and he now lands with their NFC East rivals. As I posted earlier, the market for Jenkins had been soft, and the Saints were believed to be in the mix.

The Eagles’ offseason bounty includes CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (acquired in a trade) and free agents CB Nnamdi Asomugha, DE Jason Babin, QB Vince Young and WR Johnnie Lee Higgins, and now Jenkins.
