The Philadelphia Eagles have traded safety Terrence Brooks to the New York Jets for cornerback Dexter McDougle.

Brooks, who was the 79th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft by the Ravens, was acquired by the Eagles last year off waivers. He spent nearly the 2016 season as a special teams player, playing just three snaps on defense against 165 on special teams. Brooks became expendable when the team signed Corey Graham three weeks ago.

McDougle, the 80th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft by the Jets, missed the entire 2014 season with a torn ACL and spent most of the 2016 season on the Jets practice squad. He’s appeared in 20 games with the Jets, mostly on special teams.

McDougle is the eighth cornerback acquired by the Eagles this offseason, along with Ronald Darby, draft picks Sidney Jones, Rasul Douglas, free agents Patrick Robinson, Mitchell White, Jomal Wiltz and the since-released Tay Glover-Wright and Randall Goforth.
