And often, he seemed to be a lone voice of reality and leadership coming out of the locker room in the dark depths of the first half of the season.
Despite the bumps in the road last season, the former Super Bowl champ and league veteran enjoyed his time in Philadelphia. So much so that he was willing to take a pay cut to remain here. Continue reading ‘Cullen Jenkins Takes Pay Cut to Stay on the Philadelphia Eagles’
