Report: Cullen Jenkins to meet with Seahawks, 49ers

We mentioned Friday that former Philadelphia Eagles defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins has a long line of suitors interested in his services.

After Jenkins met with the New York Giants on Friday, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that no less than six additional teams had inquired about him. Those teams weren't named, but two interested parties have come to light.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Jenkins is scheduled to meet with the Seattle Seahawks on Monday and the San Francisco 49ers on Tuesday. Both teams are in the market for help up front.

The Seahawks face the possibility of losing free-agent linemen Alan Branch and Jason Jones, while the 49ers will be light in the trenches if Isaac Sopoaga and Ricky Jean-Francois sign elsewhere.

Jenkins, at 32, has lost some power, but he was productive last season on a bad Eagles defense. One reason he's our seventh-ranked free-agent tackle and likely to find a new gig before long.
