It’s now a foregone conclusion defensive end Cullen Jenkins, who will be a free agent when the lockout ends, has played his last game for the Green Bay Packers. General manager Ted Thompson made no effort to sign Jenkins to a contract extension, even when Jenkins’ agent approached the team before the start of the 2010 season. On Wednesday, Jenkins, who had a career-high seven sacks in 2010, revealed he would have taken less money to remain in Green Bay.
The Chicago Bears will target Green Bay Packers defensive end Cullen Jenkins whenever free agency begins, according to John Mullin of CSN Chicago. The Bears are looking to improve their defensive line and after re-signing defensive tackle Anthony Adams, Jenkins will be the team’s second priority.
There’s speculation Johnny Jolly’s second arrest for codeine possession, which put his NFL career in serious jeopardy, will force the Green Bay Packers to reevaluate re-signing defensive end Cullen Jenkins. Jenkins, who had seven sacks in 11 games in 2010, will be one of the most sought-after defensive free agents whenever free agency begins.
As far as he’s concerned, Cullen Jenkins’ career with the Green Bay Packers is over.
He’s a little bitter about it too.
The Packers did not use their franchise or transition tags — the deadline to use them was Thursday — and the team hasn’t approached Jenkins about a new contract.
While several NFL teams have been slapping the franchise tag on their players, the Green Bay Packers won’t be using theirs.
There was speculation the Packers might use the tag on defensive end Cullen Jenkins or kicker Mason Crosby, both pending free agents, but Ted Thompson obviously thought the cost was too great.
Suspended Green Bay Packers defensive end Johnny Jolly, who was eligible to apply for reinstatement after the Super Bowl, has done just that.

The sheen of winning Super Bowl XLV hasn’t quite worn off, but the Green Bay Packers front office is going to have to make some important offseason decisions very soon. The biggest of those may be what to do with defensive end Cullen Jenkins. Jenkins enters the offseason without a contract and the Packers didn’t […]
Defensive end Cullen Jenkins looks ready to return to the Green Bay Packers starting lineup for the wild card matchup with Philadelphia, on Sunday.

Coach Mike McCarthy is still […]
With Desmond Bishop receiving a contact extension, defensive end Cullen Jenkins should be the top priority for the Green Bay Packers.

In addition to Jenkins, they include fullbacks John […]
While everyone in the great state of Wisconsin is concerned about Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and his availability for Sunday’s game after suffering his second concussion of the season, his status will be up in the air as he undergoes tests throughout the week. The injury news isn’t getting any better for the […]
Green Bay Packers defensive end Cullen Jenkins didn’t play a snap on Sunday. In fact, he didn’t attend a single practice in the past week. Jenkins has been staying off his injured calf, which he re-injured against San Francisco. The injury is likely to cost Jenkins another week and might end his season. “You can’t […]
Perhaps it isn’t quite accurate to say Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews’ production has dropped. His sack numbers have dropped, for sure. He’s now second in the league with 11.5 sacks — Miami’s Cameron Wake has 12 — after leading the league for most of the season and he hasn’t recorded a sack the […]
Fresh off setting a career high in sacks after a two-sack performance against San Francisco, Green Bay Packers defensive end Cullen Jenkins got some bad news — the calf strain he suffered on Sunday will keep him out of this week’s game with Detroit and possibly longer. “It may be a couple weeks. When you’re […]
Everyone is a little frustrated the Green Bay Packers can’t quite get over the hump, including the players, but while the Packers could have won every game they played this season, only two teams have gone through an NFL regular season undefeated. There have been some close losses. There was the missed opportunity to make […]
Green Bay Packers linebacker Desmond Bishop finally got his chance to start and he’s making the most of it. Bishop has outperformed Nick Barnett, who he replaced in the starting lineup after Barnett’s season-ending wrist injury, by a wide margin.

As the Green Bay Packers’ injuries began to pile up, quite a few people thought the wheels were about to fall off.

The Green Bay Packers have ended the illustrious Mike Montgomery era, releasing the defensive end Tuesday. Montgomery played in two games this season for the Packers, after being signed on October, 15. He recorded no tackles. A former sixth-round pick by the Packers, Montgomery simply doesn’t fit the Packers 3-4 system and he never has. […]
No joke. The Green Bay Packers have lost their 10th player to season-ending injured reserve. Today, the team added linebacker Brad Jones to the list. Jones suffered a significant shoulder injury in Sunday’s win over Minnesota. During today’s press conference, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Jones would need surgery. “Brad Jones has a significant shoulder […]
Although the Green Bay Packers made it out of their game with the Minnesota Vikings almost injury free, the team still got some bad news on Monday regarding injuries.

The Green Bay Packers officially ended Nick Barnett’s season by putting him on injured reserve.
