Eagles front office makes another savvy move, acquiring Timmy Jernigan from Ravens

The "price" is a swap of third-round picks, with Baltimore getting the 74th overall selection and the Ravens sending pick 99 along with Jernigan.

The Ravens now have the 74th and 78th picks overall picks in the third round, but they have two significant holes on their defensive front after trading Jernigan and losing starting defensive end Lawrence Guy to the New England Patriots in free agency.

This will now give the Ravens four picks in first three rounds of the draft. In addition to the 13 career sacks, he has nine tackles, three passes defensed, one interception and one fumble recovery in 43 regular-season games. After missing four games over his first two seasons, Jernigan played all 16 games a year ago with the Ravens.

"We are excited to add Timmy Jernigan to our defensive front", Roseman said in a release from the team.

If price is right, Patriots and Adrian Peterson could be a fit
Adrian Peterson will take a free agent visit on Monday, and it's one that will send some shudders throughout the NFL. Peterson, 32, spent the first 10 years of his career with the Vikings, although he played just three games in 2016.

Jernigan has one year left on his contract and is likely going to command a large salary next offseason. Below, we have the exact details of the trade and a grade for the Eagles and Ravens. "It was hard to move down in the third round, but we believe in building along the lines and he is a good fit for our scheme".

Jernigan, dating to his days with the Seminoles, is notorious for starting strong and wearing out in the second halves of seasons. But Jernigan's one-year contract could put the Eagles in bind next offseason. The Ravens took the Florida State product off the board in the second round of the 2014 draft.

If Jernigan plays well in 2017, he might surge out of the Eagles' price range. After that, the team had Beau Allen, two undrafted players from a year ago in Destiny Vaeao and Aziz Shittu, and Justin Hamilton, whom the team signed to a futures deal after the season.
