    May as well make a thread about it since you know we're going to talk about it either way.

    He seems like he would be a decent role player somewhere.

    He is 32 and started all 16 games in both 2011 and 2012 for the Eagles.

    Scouts Inc. Scouting Report:
    Jenkins had an excellent season in his first year in Philadelphia in 2011. He is a short, powerfully built interior defender with excellent quickness to penetrate gaps. He plays with good pad level and can anchor well defending the run. He can push the pocket and flashes effective counter moves as a pass-rusher. Jenkins, an eight-year veteran, brings experience and playmaking ability to the Eagles defensive line.

    Why?

    He was actually productive for Philly.

    He didn't exactly played inspired ball last year. I don't see the need to pay for someone like him anyway. I'd roll the dice on Crawford and Hatcher and ???? filling that roll.

    Philly said the same thing when we resigned Doug free after they sniffed around him.

    Green Bay admitted they made a mistake letting him go. I bet they are on the phone right now with him begging him to come back.

    I don't think he was as good in a 4-3 as he was in a 3-4. One of the reasons I wouldnt want him, not to mention being on the wrong side of 30. Mike Patterson on the other hand is someone I would consider for depth as a 1 technique dependant on his phsyical condition

    Was he the starting NT in Green Bay's 3-4 or a DE?

    Jenkins was better than any Cowboys DL the last 2 seasons. Not even close. But Cowboys probably can't afford him anyway.

    Jerry and Stephen have stated a few times that they will not be big players in FA this offseason.

    I think Jenkins as a backup/depth would be OK (if he's that cheap). Lack of depth has hurt Dallas and we know how back it was at the interior Dline spot(s).

    They also cut Mike Patterson. Again, good for depth IMO unless they're somebody cheaper out there

    I feel like the Eagles D-Line was roiding in 2011.

    The dropoff from season 1 to season 2 is so remarkable that i'd believe it.

    All of those players that compiled that "Dream Team"...Vince Young is gone, Cullen Jenkins is gone, Jason Babin is gone.....and its only a matter of time before Nnamdi is.

    Not to mention in Andy's sons room they found a bunch of roid needles or something like that during training camp when he passed. Then they never looked the same. I dunno, smells fishy to me.
