NFL Notes: 49ers, Cowboys, Eagles, Giants, & Redskins

49ers

  • FootballScoop.com is reporting that former Youngstown State HC Eric Wolford plans to accept the assistant offensive line position with the 49ers.

Cowboys

  • Todd Archer writes that if RB DeMarco Murray gets an offer too good to pass up this offseason, he has to take it.
  • Archer doesn’t completely rule out Murray being back with the Cowboys next year, but believes he should do what’s best for him.
  • Archer expects the Cowboys to miss OL coach Bill Callahanto a degree,” but also believes their offensive unit could take a step forward in their development without him.
  • According to Archer, the Cowboys could look to restructure QB Tony Romo’s contract to create room, but it’s not a given they do it.
  • The Cowboys figure to target defensive upgrades in the draft, according to Archer.

Eagles

Eagles RB LeSean McCoy said he supports Nick Foles being their starting quarterback next season.

I like Nick. The person and player that everybody thought he was, he is. There were a lot of injuries this year, Nick, obviously got injured. He gets all of the blame and he shouldn’t,” McCoy said, via PhiladelphiaEagles.com. “I think Nick’s a good quarterback. He’s the leader of our team. Things just didn’t work out for him this year due to injury, but we’ve got his back. As a team, we didn’t play well enough to win and get into the playoffs.”

Giants

  • Dan Granziano believe it would make sense for the Giants to move Justin Pugh inside to guard and target a “big-time, mauling, run-blocking right tackle.”
  • Graziano mentions that the Giants could have their on free agent right tackles Doug Free, Bryan Bulaga and Joe Barksdale.
  • Graziano writes that free agents DE Jason Pierre-Paul and S Antrel Rolle could both be back next year, but it’s likely to come down to their asking price.
  • Graziano doesn’t see the Giants targeting an upgrade at tight end this offseason.

Redskins

  • John Keim writes that even with the addition of Bill Callahan as their offensive line coach, he doesn’t expect major changes with the team’s current personnel or scheme.
  • Keim believes Washington needs to bolster their pass-rushing depth this offseason and could see them going that route at No. 5 overall.
  • According to Keim, some of the team’s coaches doubt Robert Griffin III will ever develop the necessary instincts in the pocket. Keim adds that another year in Jay Gruden’s system should help his development.
  • Keim doesn’t rule out the Redskins trading back in the draft if an opportunity presents itself.
