Along with the player, the Eagles will get the 99th overall selection, a compensatory pick, for their 74th overall pick.
Jernigan was a second-round pick by the Ravens in 2014 and has started in 24 of the 43 games he’s played in since.
“Timmy has been a terrific player for us for three seasons,” Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said in a team release. “This will allow our young group of defensive linemen an opportunity to compete and play.”
As for the Eagles, they lost Bennie Logan to free agency and could use the five sacks and 31 total tackles Jernigan produced in 2016.
“We are excited to add Timmy Jernigan to our defensive front. It was hard to move down in the third round but we believe in building along the lines and he is a good fit for our scheme,” Howie Roseman, Philadelphia’s executive vice president of football operations, said in a release. “At 24 years old, his best football is still ahead of him.”
