The Washington Redskins plan to re-sign defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins, according to Ben Standig from Breaking Burgundy.
The Redskins are adding the 35 year old veteran, after last night’s game where DeAngelo Williams tore up the Redskins D-Line.
Jenkins is known for his run defense and the Redskins showed they needed more of that in their Week 1 loss to Pittsburgh. The Steelers rushed for 147 yards, averaging 5.1 yards per carry.
I’m told the Redskins plan to re-sign DL Cullen Jenkins today, per source. Released him during final cuts. More on @breakburgundy.
