Cullen Jenkins Diplomatically Criticizes Redskins


The Redskins have drawn some praise for their ultra-aggressive pursuit of Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III. And, of course, some have deemed their trade with the St. Louis Rams for the second overall pick in the draft as insane.

There’s merit to either side of the argument. Every analyst, writer, and talk show host has weighed in with their take on the Redskins’ bold move.

Now, opposing players are weighing in, too.

Comcast SportsNet caught up with Eagles DT Cullen Jenkins to get his reaction about RGIII heading to Washington.

“Obviously you gotta be pretty interested in RG3 at that spot. You know it just reminds me alot of what Chicago did with the Jay Cutler thing where you give up a whole lot to get somebody… So more power to em,” he said. “Personally I think they gave up a lot to get em. It’s always tough anytime you take a chance on a kid who shows all the ability but it is still unproven in the NFL.”

He’s right. But he didn’t say anything that a million others haven’t already said.

Really, the bigger story here is that a member of the Philadelphia Eagles organization actually answered a potentially dangerous question in a rational, respectful way.
