Cullen Jenkins will not be reuniting with the Green Bay Packers.

The defensive lineman, who was cut by the Philadelphia Eagles last month, signed a three-year contract with the New York Giants today, according to a report on NFL.com.

The contract includes $3 million guaranteed and is worth $8 million overall.

Jenkins is a possible replacement for Chris Canty. The Giants cut Canty last month to save salary cap apace. The Packers had Canty in for a visit last week and could be getting ready to offer him a contract.

The Packers made a cursory inquiry into bringing back Jenkins he played with them from 2004 to 2010 but did no more.

Though unrestricted free agents are unable to sign with new teams until 3 p.m. Tuesday, Jenkins and Canty are able to sign now because they were cut by their previous teams. Unrestricted free agents are players whose contracts expire this offseason.
