Tim Jernigan has had a turbulent time since being part of the Eagles' Super Bowl victory two seasons ago. A mysterious offseason neck injury sidelined the defensive tackle for most of 2018. He was then released by the Eagles at the beginning of this offseason before being brought back at a significantly lower salary. The Eagles also added former Pro Bowl defensive tackle Malik Jackson as Jernigan sat on the free agent market.
Jernigan spoke to the media following the Eagles' first day of OTAs on Tuesday. He had nothing but positive things to say about the addition of Jackson but was also outspoken about the confidence he has in himself for 2019.
