The Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Jets made a trade on Sunday. Safety Terrence Brooks is the newest member of the Jets.

In exchange for Brooks, the Eagles acquired cornerback Dexter McDougle.

Brooks was previously a third-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. He’s now joining his third NFL team.

He began his career with the Baltimore Ravens before being claimed off of waivers by the Eagles prior to the 2016 season. In 11 games last season, he barely played on the defensive side of the ball.

He had just three defensive snaps.

With the Jets, he’s going to have to compete with Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye.

Also, it’s not clear if McDougle will make the Eagles roster, as mandatory rosters have to be made in the coming days following the team’s final preseason game. The Eagles have some good cornerbacks in Ronald Darby, who was acquired in an earlier trade with the Buffalo Bills this summer for Jordan Matthews, along with Jalen Mills, Ron Brooks, rookies Rasul Douglas and Sidney Jones and Patrick Johnson. Jones, though, is expected to begin the season on the non-football injury list.

McDougle, if he does make the final cut, will likely be a special teamer. He has only appeared in 20 games since the 2014 season.

Brooks, 26, had an interception, a pass deflection and two forced fumbles last season in Philadelphia. In two years in Baltimore through 23 games, he had 22 tackles, three pass deflections and a fumble recovery.

McDougle, also 26, spent two seasons with the Jets. He appeared in 20 games with just one pass deflection and a tackle.
