The Philadelphia Eagles continue their rebuilding process as they have released defensive tackles, Mike Patterson and Cullen Jenkins today.
Last season, Patterson played in 5 games, had 6 combined tackles, 3 total tackles, 3 assisted tackles, and 1 sack.
Jenkins played in all 16 games, had 26 combined tackles, 22 total tackles, 4 assisted tackles, 4 sacks, 1 forced fumble, and 1 fumble recovered.
General Manager, Howie Roseman said, “Mike Patterson is one of the toughest players I have ever been around in the National Football League. He has overcome many obstacles throughout his career and I have the upmost respect for him because of it. Coach Kelly and I each had great conversations with him today. He is a class act. He gave this organization eight great seasons of hard work and dedication and we wish him all the best as he continues his career in this league. Jenkins 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.”
