The Eagles have announced the have agreed to a one year deal with defensive tackle Tim Jernigan.

Jernigan was let go by the Eagles early after they declined his $13 million contract option. Rightfully so, the Eagles did not want to pay that and now, they got him back for much cheaper.
Are the Eagles still in the market for a defensive tackle this draft? There’s no saying they won’t take one still with one of their higher priority picks. However, regardless of the draft, having a core of Fletcher Cox, Malik Jackson and Tim Jernigan is going to be a force to be reckoned with.
