New York Giants Reload Defensive Line by Signing Cullen Jenkins
It didn’t take Cullen Jenkins long to find a new home after his tenure with the “dream team” ended early. Just two years into his five-year, $25 million contract, Jenkins was released by the Philadelphia Eagles this offseason and then was signed by the New York Giants two weeks later. The move works out for both parties as the Giants just released Chris Canty, so Jenkins will fill his spot on arguably still the best defensive line in football.
Of course, that’s hard to say considering the Giants had statistically the NFL‘s second-worst defense in 2012, but when you look at their pass rushers, it’s hard to pick any other team with a better unit. Defensive ends Justin Tuck and Jason Pierre-Paul are arguably the best two in the business and Cullens help to reload at defensive tackle by parking with Linval Joseph. That doesn’t even include New York’s two solid outside linebackers, Mathias Kiwanuka and Michael Boley.
So if Jenkins can return to his 2010 form that helped the Green Bay Packers to a Super Bowl title, the Giants might find themselves hot at the right time and back in the big game as early as this year. Sound crazy? How about a 9-7 team winning the Super Bowl after winning their last regular season game just to get into the playoffs? Yep, that was the Giants in the 2011 NFL season. In other words, never say never.
