Eagles sign DT Tim Jernigan to $48 million contract extension

Eagles sign DT Tim Jernigan to $48 million contract extension”

Even though Jernigan has only recorded 1.5 sacks this season, he's been an essential piece in the defensive line puzzle and has made it incredibly hard to double-team Cox on every play like they did a year ago.

Jernigan could have waited for free agency to see if the money would be more impressive.

They have a chance now to become the NFL's best defensive tackle tandem.

The Eagles weren't messing around.

Re-signing Jernigan was expected to be a top priority for the Eagles, who prior to Thursday's contract had approximately $6.31 million in cap space remaining this season and $5.18 million in flexibility under the cap in 2018.

Acquired for a third-round draft pick (No. 99 overall) from Baltimore this past offseason, Jernigan has a team-high eight tackles for loss.

Jernigan is now signed through the 2021 season. The Eagles are an NFL-best 8-1. This is a unit that has helped Philadelphia rank first in rushing yards allowed (66.4) and sixth in total sacks (25.0) through nine games. The 7-2 Eagles head into Week 10 with the league's top-ranked run defense. Sources tell Action News that the deal is worth $48 million, including $26 million fully guaranteed. More than $62 million in guarantees is now earmarked for two players on the interior of the defensive line.

Jernigan was in the final season of his rookie-deal.

More than one quarter of the team's roster is comprised of Eagles who are in the a year ago of their deals, so Roseman will need his best number-crunching this offseason. That'll be a problem for the Cowboys, Redskins and Giants.
