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.
Next chapter beginning??? I think so.
