Looks like Jenkins is back on the street. If TT is kicking the tires on Canty I have to imagine they'd do the same with Jenkins, especially since he's most likely now past the phase where he's going to cash in big time in FA.

Canty is 3 years younger.

I'm not going to pick on Jenkins.  He's an adult and he made his choice.  But I wonder if signing with the Packers at their offer plus the playoff money would have been more than his Eagles' deal.  Of course, when he signed with the Eagles, they were considered near-locks for the playoffs.

Wouldn't mind having Jenkins back, especially given the question mark on Worthy.  Wonder how much he'll get and who will be calling him?

True, but Jenkins has been an impact guy in our system before.

Frankly we need both types of players - the interior pass rush guy like Jenkins, as well as the tall, run stopping DE like Canty.

Jenkins was released by the Eagles today. I really would not mind if the Packers signed him as a rotational player if they can get him at a decent price.

Honestly I am a little torn about this. Jenkins is a good locker room guy and we lost Woodson. Also it seems he would really like to come back. Unless he would except a minimum salary I would not do it. He really is not a true 3-4 DE but he would be a good situational pass rusher. its a tough call even at the right price. Stop gap player whom we may or may not need. tough call.

A true 3-4 DE by measurables, maybe not, but he sure could play the position.  I think that ship has sailed though.  A couple years older and more ready to break down as he'll be 33 years old by the start of next season.  I suppose if he came cheap, I could see it as a 1yr replacement for Worthy who I suspect won't play next season.

I agree. His presence has been missed. He's definitely on the downslide, but with Worthy very much in question for next season, it's not a bad move at all. GB's d-line has struggled since he left. If they can land him for about a 2 year $7 million deal, I'd say it's absolutely worth it. He was still productive last season.

Hes wasn't productive last year, and was a bust as an eagle. Rather let the young guys get PT over clearly worn out Jenkins

Absolutely worth a min contract. I hope we offer that at least.

I really have to say I think it's a bad move.  He's older now than he was when he left for Philly.  Back then, I really wish we had kept him, I think TT should have given up (what turned out to be) not that much more than what Philly offered.

Now, things are different.  He's that many years older.  His production is dropping.  *Maybe* he would produce more than one of the younger guys, but by how much and for how much $?  Not to mention, the impact of playtime for the younger guys.

Just doesn't make sense unless it were an emergency.

We've really missed what Jenkins used to bring. However it would appear that TT let him go just about exactly one year early - as I recall his 1st year with Philly was pretty decent, his second year he hit the wall. At this point it would seem we would be signing a memory, not an actual current player. Perhaps the Philly scheme sucked and he has something left - that would be for our scouts and coaches to determine. But right now it looks to me like TT followed the NFL rule perfectly - better to let a player go a year early than a year late.

Agreed.
