Ravens Trade DT Timmy Jernigan To Eagles


The Philadelphia Eagles have already confirmed the trade.


Adam Schefter is reporting that the Ravens have agreed to trade DT Timmy Jernigan to the Eagles.

Rumors first surfaced a few weeks ago after Michael Lombardi of The Ringer mentioned that he had heard the Ravens were discussing the possibility of trading Jernigan now that they’ve re-signed Brandon Williams to a big-money extension.

It was going to be very difficult for the Ravens to pay Jernigan a market-value contract next year after committing to Williams long-term and it appears as though they felt better about moving up in round three this year, as opposed to waiting for a 2019 compensatory pick.

Jernigan, 24, is a former second-round pick of the Ravens back in 2014. He’s currently entering the final year of his four-year, $4.382 million contract that included $2.126 million guaranteed and is set to make a base salary of $1,017,669 for the 2017 season.

According to OverTheCap.com, trading Jernigan will free up $1,017,669 of available cap space while creating $376,891 in dead money for the Ravens.

In 2016, Jernigan appeared in all 16 games for the Ravens and recorded 31 tackles, five sacks, an interception, a fumble recovery and three pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 42 interior defender out of 127 qualifying players.
