Eagles Acquire DT Timmy Jernigan

Eagles Acquire DT Timmy Jernigan

The Baltimore Ravens traded defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan and a third-round compensatory pick to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for their third-round pick, it was announced Tuesday. In exchange, the Ravens acquired a third-round pick from the #Eagles (No. 74 overall). While that might seem like a positive move for an underwhelming player, Baltimore got fleeced.

Jernigan, 24, made a career-high 15 starts last season and finished with a career-high five sacks.

Vinnie Ronca of Pro Football Focus noted Jernigan's run-stop percentage of 10.8 was the best among defensive tackles last season.

Federer to face Nadal for Miami crown
It would be like a throwback to 2005, the finals we played - 2004 we played the first time ever against each other here in Miami . I had some ups and downs, a bit of a roller coaster, but ultimately I think I put in a good performance.

After the 2017 season, Jernigan will become an unrestricted free agent, but the Eagles will own his rights and will have exclusive negotiating power with him until next March. Logan started 43 games over the past three seasons for Philadelphia and had a career-best 2.5 sacks in 2016.

Jernigan is entering the final year of his rookie contract. It's likely no coincidence that vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas was in Baltimore's front office when Jernigan was drafted out of Florida State. "This will allow our young group of defensive linemen an opportunity to compete and play". Jernigan takes over for Logan, who signed with Kansas City as a free agent last month. General manager Ozzie Newsome now has four of the draft's top 78 picks - 16, 47, 74 and 78.
