The Jaguars signed defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan following a slew of injuries and unexpected losses along the defensive line over the last few weeks. Jernigan, 27, is very familiar with the franchise, bouncing between Lake City and Jacksonville (Fla.) throughout his childhood. Never far from home, Jernigan played collegiality with the Florida State Seminoles.

Jernigan’s homecoming will make for a welcomed addition to the team’s defensive line, especially after the losses the team has taken. Veterans defensive end Lerentee McCray and defensive tackle Al Woods opted out due to concerns regarding the coronavrius pandemic, second-year DT Dontavius Russell was placed on injured reserve and DL Aaron Lynch suddenly retired.
