The Eagles announced Thursday that they’ve re-signed DT Timmy Jernigan to a one-year deal.

The Eagles declined Jernigan’s option earlier this offseason but elected to bring him back at presumably a lower salary.
Jernigan, 26, 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 extension, $48 million extension that includes $26 million fully guaranteed in 2017.
In 2018, Jernigan appeared in three games for the Eagles and recorded two tackles and no sacks.
