There aren’t a lot of players left from the John Idzik era and that list just got even shorter. The NY Jets have announced that they have traded CB Dexter McDougle to the Philadelphia Eagles for safety Terrence Brooks. McDougle was drafted by the Jets in the 3rd round of the 2014 NFL draft. The move comes as a surprise as McDougle has had an excellent camp. He seemed to be pushing not only for a roster spot, but for playing time.
We've acquired S Terrence Brooks from the Eagles via trade in exchange for CB Dexter McDougle.

In three years in the league, Brooks racked up 32 tackles, four pass defenses, one interception and two forced fumbles in 34 games (no starts). The 5’10”, 200-pounder was originally selected by the Ravens in third-round of the 2014 Draft. In this year’s preseason, the Florida State product has tallied 11 tackles and two tackles for loss.
