Jenkins' five-year deal is worth $25 million, Schefter added.
The 30-year-old Jenkins had spent his entire career with the Green Bay Packers, who had signed him as an undrafted free agent out of Central Michigan in 2004. During his seven-year career with the Packers, Jenkins totaled 194 tackles and 29 quarterback sacks, and had 16 passes defensed with an interception.
For the past few seasons, Jenkins has been playing defensive end in the Packers' 3-4 defense, but will move back to the interior of an Eagles' defensive line that started Mike Patterson and Antonio Dixon in 2010, and rotated in former first-round pick Broderick Bunkley and second-round pick Trevor Laws.
The addition of Jenkins is another bold move by Eagles president Joe Banner and general manager Howie Roseman, who thus far have traded quarterback Kevin Kolb to the Arizona Cardinals in exchange for cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second-round pick, signed cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, the premier free agent this offseason, to a five-year, $60 million contract with $25 million guaranteed, and added quarterback Vince Young, the third overall pick of the 2006 NFL Draft, to a one-year contract.
