NFC Notes: Eagles, Lions, Packers, Panthers, Seahawks

 

Eagles

  • According to former Eagles assistant coach Tra Thomas, first-round pick OLB Marcus Smith‘s rookie struggles can be attributed to his lack of strength.

He’s definitely going to have to get a little stronger out there because when you look at even his body type, he has the build of like a high school athlete still — a young college athlete,” Thomas said, via CSN Philly. “He needs to put on probably about a good 15 to 20 more pounds so he can really execute and be a effective out there.

“He has the same movement pattern as Connor [Barwin], where you can teach him how to work and throw his different moves in and how to help him with his timing.

Lions

Packers

  • Rob Demovsky reports that all contract talks between the Packers and DT Letroy Guion are on hold while Green Bay investigates what happened with his arrest.
  • Demovsky writes that this situation “probably adds more urgency to getting a deal done with [B.J.] Raji.”
  • According to Demovsky, the Packers are likely to move on with ILBs A.J. Hawk and Brad Jones.
  • Demosky mentions that “there seems little chance” of the Packers allowing WR Randall Cobb to walk this offseason.

Panthers

Seahawks

According to Joel Corry of CBS Sports, the 2015 base salaries for a number of Seahawks players are all guaranteed as of today.
