Free agent defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins sent out a tweet indicating he might have made a decision on his next team. The speculation will be fervent until an announcement is made.
Fooch's Note: Speculation may just be over:
NYG have signed DT Cullen Jenkins to a three-year deal for $8 million, $3 million guaranteed. Nice pickup.— Kimberly Jones (@KimJonesSports) March 10, 2013
Let the speculation begin!
Next chapter beginning??? I think so.— Cullen Jenkins (@CullenJenkins) March 10, 2013
After the Eagles released Cullen Jenkins, he visited the Giants, 49ers, Raiders and Seahawks. There were some rumors he might consider a return to Green Bay, but the packers never emerged in the rumors.
And so, we're left to wait and wonder. USA Today's Mike Garafolo reported it was down to two teams:
Updating on Jenkins, it's not just one team in the mix. There's two. This is a veritable cage match by this weekend's standards!— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) March 10, 2013
Giants beat writer Jenny Vrentas followed up on that:
If this is all true, this has come down to the Giants and one other team. The Raiders could potentially offer more playing time on their defensive line. The Seahawks also might be able to offer more playing time if they let Alan Branch and Jason Jones walk. The 49ers are just coming off a Super Bowl appearance, and while they would likely be offering the least playing time, they could offer decent playing time if Ricky Jean Francois walks.
For now, we wait.
