Cullen Jenkins has found a new home and it just so happens to be in the NFC East. According to Kimberly Jones of NFL.com and WFAN Radio in New York, Cullen Jenkins and the New York Giants have reached an agreement on a three-year, $8 million contract. Jenkins visited the Giants last week and agreed to a contract with them on Sunday evening.

USA Today’s Mike Garafolo tweeted earlier on Sunday that the Packers indicated that they were in no way interested in bringing back Cullen Jenkins in 2013. Jenkins spent his first five seasons with the Packers before signing with the Eagles as part of their failed Dream Team project. Jenkins himself tweeted late on Sunday that a new chapter may be beginning, which either means he’s aware the Packers won’t be bringing him back or that a team is close to signing him to a new deal.

Jenkins remains in the NFC East and will join a defensive line that the Giants are hoping can rebound from a season where they seemed to take a step back. Adam Schefter reported that the details of Jenkins new deal with the Giants includes a guarantee of $3 million as well as a $2 million signing bonus.
