Raiders to host Free Agent Cullen Jenkins

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

The first reports of the Raiders hosting a free agent have former Eagles' and Packers' defensive lineman, Cullen Jenkins paying a visit.

For those players whose contracts expire, free agency begins March 12. But for those who were cut this off-season are free to sign whenever they like. One such player is former Eagles defensive tackle, Cullen Jenkins.

Several teams across the NFL are showing interest in Jenkins. According to NFL.com's Ian Rappoport He had been scheduled to visit the Seahawks and 49ers and has now added the Raiders to his trip plans. He had already met with the New York Giants last week.

Jenkins visited the Seahawks on Monday, will meet with the 49ers today, and now plans to stay in the Bay Area an extra day to talk to the Raiders.

The Seahawks and 49ers are probably more attractive teams as both were in the playoffs last season. But if they can't offer Jenkins the kind of money or playing time he desires, the Raiders would become a real option.

Reggie McKenzie is very familiar with Jenkins as he was with the Packer for seven seasons from 2004-10. That familiarity is undoubtedly part of the reason Jenkins is considering joining the team. It's the only team he will have visited who didn't have a winning record last season.

Jenkins starting every game the past two seasons for the Eagles, racking up 9.5 sacks during that time. He turned 32 in January.
