Two years ago, the NFC was set to be turned over on its head. The Green Bay Packers were the newly-crowned Super Bowl Champions and the Philadelphia Eagles wanted a piece of that Super Bowl action. In order to make that possible, the Eagles grabbed their enormous checkbooks and went straight for the free agency in hopes of building a contender after losing to the Packers in the Wild Card round just a few months prior.

The feat was impressive and Philadelphia stacked their roster in every way possible. Players like Nnamdi Asomugha, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Ronnie Brown and Vince Young were brought in with a host of others to stack the deck against the rest of the NFC. Among those "others" were former Packers, fresh off of their Super Bowl victory. Those players were tight end Donald Lee and defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins. Jenkins left Green Bay to sign with the Eagles on a five-year, $25 million deal.

When word got around that Jenkins was signing to Philly, many of us knew that would be a blow to our (2010-11) run defense which was only ranked 18th stopping the rush and was second in points allowed (240). Jenkins was set to anchor a Eagles D-line that was already talented while the Packers looked for someone to fill the void that he left in the middle.

Then, backup quarterback Vince Young called his team the "Dream Team" and everything good just...um, kind of got shot to hell. Over the course of the next two seasons, the Eagles would go 12-20 without even touching the playoffs. (8-8 in 2011 and 4-12 last season.) The defense was bad, especially over the course of their eight-game losing streak in 2012 from Week 5 to Week 13.

Given all of that, the Eagles have decided to make significant changes within their organization. Among those casualties, there was Cullen Jenkins, who was released on Monday. In his two seasons with Philadelphia, he started all 32 games and recorded 9.5 sacks and 54 overall tackles. The 32 year-old Jenkins restructured his contract last offseason in hopes of staying in Philadelphia longer but that only afforded him the 2012 season. Now he will have to look for another place to call home.
