Eagles Stand Pat; Redskins Add DE

Kentucky defensive end Jeremy Jarmon, a player the Eagles were reportedly interested in, landed in Washington in the third round of Wednesday's supplemental draft. In fact, Jarmon was the only player selected. The Redskins will give up their 2010 third-round pick for the right to select Jarmon, considered by NFLDraftScout.com's Rob Rang to be the "crown jewel" of the players available.

Jarmon lost his final year of eligibility because he tested positive for a banned substance. Jarmon said that it was from a dietary supplement. The 6-3, 279-pound Jarmon recorded 17.5 sacks in three seasons for the Wildcats. With Washington thin at defensive end, Jarmon could compete for significant snaps and emerge into a player the Eagles will face twice a year.

Other than the addition of rookie free agent Josh Gaines, the Eagles didn't make any personnel moves involving the defensive end position in the off-season. The Eagles remain very high on what third-year end Victor Abiamiri can provide in 2009.
