DT Timmy Jernigan

Recommended Posts

I posted this in the Post-draft Free Agency thread.  Thought it might deserve one of its own given that we're in a very quiet part of the offseason.

 

DT Timmy Jernigan no longer signing with the Texans.  He was undoubtedly scouted by Douglas when he was in Baltimore, as he was drafted in the 2nd round by the Ravens in 2014, then joined Douglas in Philly in a draft night trade in 2017.

If we had any need for a DT, this would be a lock signing for Douglas.  Maybe in a future season when we shed some of the Macc DT's. 

Jernigan has collected 17.5 sacks, 29 TFLs and 47 QB Hits over his 6-year career.

After three seasons with the Eagles, it appeared defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan was heading to the Texans. That no longer is the case.

Jernigan, who had reached an agreement on a one-year, $3.25 million deal with Houston, is not expected to sign with the team, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported Tuesday evening, according to sources informed of the situation.

Jernigan did not take a physical with the Texans and is not expected to do so, Garafolo added, with each side agreeing to part ways.

Having played in only 13 games over the previous two seasons due to neck and foot injuries, Jernigan was previously cleared by spinal specialist Robert Watkins.

However, he won't be heading to Houston.

A member of the Ravens for the first three seasons of his career, Jernigan began his stay in Philly in 2017 and started 15 games during the Eagles' Super Bowl run. As aforementioned, he played sparingly in the two seasons that followed with only 12 combined starts.

Now he's once again a free agent and looking for another new start.

In all seriousness, if JD feels that Jernigan is an upgrade over Nathan Shepherd, I wouldn't be against signing him at all.  They're the same age, after all, so its not like we'd be dumping a young guy to make room.

Jernigan originally agreed to terms with Houston back on Apr 2, 3 weeks before the draft when we were prioritizing other FA's (we had just signed Perriman and Onwuasor on Mar 25 and Fales on Mar 31) .  So now that we're past June 1 and are much more settled in terms of cap space, I wouldn't be surprised at all if Douglas at least brought him in for a workout later in the offseason.

Stick with young talent over an over the hill vet... I think he was great but he is nothing more then a McClendon and they already have that role filled

Nah bro, with the Prez we never need another safety ever. He is as good as 3 or 4 safeties combined :)

McLendon is a Nose Tackle.  Jernigan is a 4-3 DT.  

As I stated above, he'd be replacing Nathan Shepherd (who is the same age as Jernigan), not McLendon or Fatukasi.

His name should be Jimmy. Jimmy Jernigan sounds so much better than Timmy Jernigan. 

 

Make it happen.

on the other hand, it's not a bad idea to have a guy in ones back pocket in case a player goes down or even for competition.

I am pretty sure that the reason he is on the street is because he couldn't satisfy them with a physical.  The guy has a bunch of medical questions. His contract was for $3.75M with $1.25M guaranteed.  That isn't much, so he'd be something to consider, but we don't want to throw money away on guarantees to guys that will be on IR.  The physical and injury guarantees become important.

@Jetsfan80 be honest here, you saw his name, thought it spelled "Jergens", and instinctively got excited, right?

If getting drunk and pawing at sweaty men were a sport, then you and @joewilly12 would be in the Hall of Fame.
