The market for unrestricted free agent DL Cullen Jenkins hasn’t been as strong as many expected it would be. Jenkins is still looking for a team, as his age and injury concerns appear to be factors.
I’m told Jenkins isn’t in any rush to sign — free agents can’t practice with their new teams until Aug. 4 — but several potential suitors have gone in different directions.
The Washington Redskins had some interest, but decided to go in a different direction by agreeing to terms with DT Barry Cofield and didn’t get back in the Jenkins mix. The Dallas Cowboys also had some interest, but agreed to terms with DE Marcus Spears on a five-year contract worth roughly $19 million, so I’m not sure Jenkins is still on their radar.
We’ll see who meets Jenkins’ asking price, but a team to watch could be the New Orleans Saints.
