The New York Jets and Philadelphia Eagles swapped a pair of 2014 third-round defensive backs on Sunday, as the Jets acquired safety Terrence Brooks and the Eagles obtained cornerback Dexter McDougle.

This was a depth trade for both teams. The Jets were looking for a No. 3 safety after losing Doug Middleton recently to a torn pectoral muscle. They also could be without backup Rontez Miles, who suffered an eye laceration last week and is out indefinitely.

Brooks, drafted 79th overall by the Baltimore Ravens in 2014, has appeared in 34 games with no starts. The Eagles claimed him on waivers last September; he played in 11 games, with one interception and four forced fumbles.
