On Tuesday, the team traded for Baltimore Ravens starting defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan in a third-round pick swap.
Jernigan has 13 career sacks and 91 total tackles spanning his three-year National Football League career.
Moving back in the draft may not coincide with Philadelphia's plan to build in the draft, but the team did acquire a young player at a position of need. This move has the handprints of Joe Douglas all over it. Douglas, the Eagles' vice president of player personnel since May, was a national scout for the Ravens when they drafted Jernigan. Logan had just 5.5 sacks in his career, which began a year before Jernigan's did.Читайте также: 'Big mother of a snake' photobombs mum's snap of two-year-old daughter
Jernigan was the Ravens' second-round pick in 2014 out of Florida State. In 2016, he played in all 16 for the first time in his career and started a career-high 15. He will compete with Beau Allen to start at defensive tackle opposite Fletcher Cox with Vinny Curry and Brandon Graham manning the outside.
It's a deal that could work out in the Ravens' favor, but it'll take turning that draft pick into a serious upgrade to make it so.
In addition to trading for Jernigan, the Eagles added veteran defensive end Chris Long and cornerback Patrick Robinson in free agency.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
