Packers might get another shot at Jenkins

17

"Jenkins has a $5 million roster bonus due on the first day of the 2012 league year and it's questionable whether the Eagles will pay it. They would not take a salary cap hit if they chose not to pay it and allowed Jenkins to become a free agent because there was no signing bonus in the original deal. The Eagles have a decent amount of cap room left for next season, but they need to sign WR DeSean Jackson, who is an unrestricted free agent, and they probably will re-do DE Trent Cole's deal before the start of the 2012 season. By releasing Jenkins, the Eagles would gain $7.75 million in cap space. They could ask Jenkins to restructure the deal and convert the roster bonus into a signing bonus, which shink his 2012 cap number to $4 million. But Jenkins would have to agree to it."
