The Eagles released DT Cullen Jenkins on Monday, 2 years after he was a part of the so called "Dream Team" free agent class of 2011. He joined Mike Missanelli on 97.5 The Fanatic the day the news broke to talk about his short time here.
"It was rough," said Jenkins. "It was definitely a couple of the hardest years I've had in my career. Just so much expectations coming into a team that had such a great tradition and bringing in so many good players and people who they thought or were expected to perform and do well, and we weren't able to accomplish anything. So it was definitely a disappointing two years."
As for what specifically went wrong? Jenkins says the team just never came together.
"We didn't jell together enough. You can't just always bring in a bunch of superstars - people who think they're superstars. You gotta have players that just know their role and go along with that and just do whatever they can to help the team. We just didn't jell the way that we needed to jell to be a successful team."
