Klis mentions that this could be a sign DL Dre’Mont Jones is ready to return from injury.
Jernigan, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Ravens back in 2014. Baltimore later traded Jernigan and a third-round pick to the Eagles in return for a third-round pick in 2017.
Jernigan was in the final year of his four-year, $4.382 million contract that included $2.126 million guaranteed when the Eagles signed him to a four-year, $48 million extension that included $26 million fully guaranteed in 2017.
Philadelphia declined Jernigan’s option last year but ended up re-signing him for the 2019 season. He agreed to a one-year, $3.75 million contract with the Texans back in April, but never passed a physical for the team and the agreement was never officially processed.
The Jaguars later signed Jernigan to a contract in August before releasing him last month. He quickly signed on with the Broncos.
In 2020, Jernigan has appeared in five games for the Jaguars and Broncos and recorded one tackle.
