Another member of the Philadelphia Eagles' "dream team" is gone. Defensive end Cullen Jenkins was released Monday two years after signing as a free agent.
Jenkins told 97.5 The Fanatic's Mike Missanelli he was "a little surprised," but not shocked. Nine years in the NFL and an abrupt end to his time with the Green Bay Packers taught him to expect these kind of things.
The last two seasons were some of the hardest of his career, Jenkins said.
"We didn't jell together enough," Jenkins said, via SportsRadioInterviews.com. "You can't just always bring in a bunch of superstars - people who think they're superstars. You gotta have players that just know their role and go along with that and just do whatever they can to help the team.
"We just didn't jell the way that we needed to jell to be a successful team."
The Eagles will remain a precautionary tale whenever teams try to build through free agency with high-priced, big-name veterans.
