With multiple defensive tackles either injured or having opted out, the Jaguars have brought in veteran free agent Timmy Jernigan for a visit.

Jernigan was an important piece on the Super Bowl team for the Eagles against the Patriots. Jernigan will enter 2020 with 51 starts, 132 tackles, and 17.5 sacks on his career. Per NFL insider Mike Garafolo, the Jaguars plan to sign former Eagles defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan .

Jernigan signed with Jacksonville in August and played a rotational role along the defensive line through the first three games. The 48th overall pick of the 2014 draft, Jernigan spent his first three years in Baltimore.

He was then traded to Philadelphia and started 15 games for the Eagles team that won Super Bowl LII. He signed a four-year, $48M extension midway through that year but was limited to three games the following year following back surgery. He was cut after 2018, then re-signed with Philly on a cheaper one-year deal.

He appeared in 10 games with nine starts for the Eagles last season. The Florida State product then inked a one-year, $3.75M pact with Houston in April, but that deal was called off after a couple of months. He only turned 28 last week, and due to his past starting experience and production, he should resurface soon with a team looking for run-stuffing help.

Broncos work out former first-rounder Sylvester Williams

  Broncos work out former first-rounder Sylvester Williams Williams, 31, has not lived up to his billing as the Broncos' No. 28 overall pick in the 2013 draft. Still, he’s been mostly employed for the last seven seasons. Williams has played for the Titans, Lions, and Dolphins, and Chargers since leaving the Broncos. The Saints rostered him briefly last summer.The 330-pound veteran appeared in five games for the Bolts last year, but wasn’t first-string for any of those appearances. The bulk of his 63 career starts came with the Broncos, followed by 11 starts with the Titans in 2017.

With the Jaguars having a giant need along the defensive line, it appears the team may have finally signed free agent defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan , according to this report from Brent Martineau of Action Sports Jax.

Timothy Lenord Jernigan Jr. (born September 24, 1992) is an American football defensive tackle who is currently a free agent of the National Football League (NFL).

The Jaguars are clearly going all in on their youth movement on defense. Jacobs started seven games last year and two of the three this season, so that’s a significant loss even though he hadn’t been playing super heavy snaps. Ekuale is a 2018 undrafted free agent from Washington State who appeared in seven games with the Browns last year.
