The Baltimore Ravens traded defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan and a third-round compensatory pick to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for their third-round pick, it was announced Tuesday. Baltimore gets the 77th overall pick while Philadelphia moves down to No. 99.

After having sacks in each of the first three games and five over his first nine, Jernigan didn't have a sack over the last seven games.

"Timmy has been a terrific player for us for three seasons", Ravens general manager and executive vice president Ozzie Newsome said in a release.

Moving back in the draft may not coincide with Philadelphia's plan to build in the draft, but the team did acquire a young player at a position of need. Jernigan is coming off the best season of his career. He was selected by Baltimore in round two of the 2014 draft, and he is entering the a year ago of his rookie dea. Logan had just 5.5 sacks in his career, which began a year before Jernigan's did.

He is expected to start for the Eagles alongside Pro Bowl defensive tackle Fletcher Cox. After giving Brandon Williams an expensive five-year deal, the Ravens round the 24-year-old Jernigan expendible - to the Eagles benefit. Baltimore now has four of the first 78 picks in this year's draft.

In addition to trading for Jernigan, the Eagles added veteran defensive end Chris Long and cornerback Patrick Robinson in free agency.
