The Eagles released DT Cullen Jenkins, the team announced Monday. 

Jenkins joined Philly as a free agent in 2011. In two seasons with the Eagles, Jenkins started every game and had 9½ sacks.

“I had a chance to speak with Cullen today and let him know of our decision,” said GM Howie Roseman in the team’s release. “It’s one of the most difficult parts of the job. He has been a very productive player in this league for a long time but we felt it in our team’s best interests that we go in a different direction. By releasing him at this point, it gives he and his agent more time to sign on with another team. We wish Cullen and his family all the best as he continues his NFL career.”

Jenkins was reportedly due $5.5 million in 2013. The 32-year-old defensive tackle has 38½ career sacks and 17 passes defensed in nine seasons. He was with Green Bay from 2004-10.
