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.
In 2020, Jernigan has appeared in three games for the Jaguars and recorded one tackle.
Jacobs, 24, is a former seventh-round pick of the Jaguars back in 2018. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $2.55 million contract.
For his career, Jacobs has appeared in 29 games for the Jaguars and recorded 56 tackles, two sacks, a fumble recovery and a pass defense.
