Giants reach agreement with DT Jenkins

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins has signed a three-year contract with the New York Giants, a person with knowledge of the deal said Sunday.

The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the Giants haven't announced the agreement, told The Associated Press that the two sides had reached a deal. It covers three years and is worth $8 million, $3.15 million guaranteed, with a $2 million signing bonus.

Free agents can't get new contracts until March 12, but Jenkins had no such restriction because he had been cut by Philadelphia.

The Giants, who missed the playoffs in 2012 after winning the Super Bowl the previous season, finished 31st in defense last season. They have cut veteran tackle Chris Canty and linebacker Michael Boley and reworked the contracts of cornerback Corey Webster and center David Baas, opening an additional $5 million in cap space.

The signing of the 32-year-old Jenkins gives the Giants a run stopper to play in the middle with Linval Joseph.

The Eagles released Jenkins and fellow defensive tackle Mike Patterson late last month. Jenkins had four sacks last season and 9 1/2 in his two seasons in Philadelphia.

Jenkins had signed a five-year, $30 million contract with the Eagles in 2011 and started every game the last two seasons. The brother of Kris Jenkins spent the first seven seasons of his NFL career with Green Bay.
