Redskins fans might think their squad needs defensive line help, but the Eagles made a trade to boost their front on Tuesday, trading for Ravens DL Timmy Jernigan.

A second-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, Jernigan registered five sacks last season in 15 starts.
A big man at 6-2, 299 pounds, Jernigan will step in to the void created when Bennie Logan left Philadelphia in free agency to play in Kansas City.

In three seasons with the Ravens, Jernigan started 26 games to go with 93 tackles and 13 sacks.
With the emergence of Brandon Williams — and the $54 million deal he just signed — Baltimore likely considered Jernigan expendable.
The trade also means the Ravens have four selections in the first 78 picks, an impressive total for a team trying to get back into the playoffs in 2017.
Jernigan played his college football at Florida State.
