Last week, Skip Bayless of ESPN “fame” indicated too much was being made of all the Philadelphia Eagles’ recent free agent signings, singling out former Green Bay DT Cullen Jenkins.
His loosely framed point was in Jenkins’ case you “didn’t hear his name” bandied about as the Packers ran the table and won the Super Bowl.
Well…it appears at least a couple of World Champs wish Cullen was still very much a Packer…

Nose Tackle B.J. Raji: “I watch a lot of film, I’m a film junkie. He is the best interior pass rusher in this league. Just his ability, his approach, his technique, there’s no way you can replace that.”
Defensive End Ryan Pickett: “He just brought an energy to a team. He’s a jokester. Nothing is too serious for him. His personality, we’re going to miss it.”
Eagles fans…embrace the arrival of Cullen Jenkins. His 5-year, $25 mil contact might glean the best return on investment of all the new Birds.
