McDougle, 26, is a former third-round pick of the Jets back in 2014. The Jets waived him coming out of the preseason last year and later signed him to their practice squad. New York eventually promoted McDougle to their active roster in November.
The Eagles acquired him from the Jets last week in exchange for S Terrence Brooks.
McDougle was entering the final year of his four-year, $2,863,876 contract and stands to make a base salary of $705,000 for the 2017 season.
In 2016, McDougle appeared in six games and recorded one and no interceptions or pass defenses.
