NFL Notes: Eagles, Giants, Ravens

Eagles

  • Jimmy Kempski writes that while the idea of the Eagles signing free agent WR Jeremy Maclin seems “somewhat unrealistic,” it’s also not impossible if they’re motivated to bring him in.
  • Kempski considers Maclin to be “something of a high-end No. 2 receiver” and could see him signing a one-year contract with the hope of cashing in next year.
  • As of now, the Eagles have $3,642,144 of cap space, according to OverTheCap.com, which means they would have to make some moves to pick up some cap room if they’re to sign Maclin.

Giants

On Friday, Giants TE Matt LaCosse had an “eye-popping day” at OTAs and was the “unequivocal star” of the session, according to Jordan Raanan.

“Yeah, he made some nice plays,” coach Ben McAdoo said. “He is a big target down there in the green zone. Matchup-wise he gives you that length that you are looking for, he can run and he is a functional blocker. So he has a nice skill set.”

  • Raanan mentions that DE Romeo Okwara has received first-team snaps in place of veteran DE Olivier Vernon.
  • The Giants had Adam Gettis filling in for Justin Pugh as their starting left guard.
  • Veteran backup QB Geno Smith was moving well despite still being limited following knee surgery last year, according to Raanan.

Ravens

  • Jamison Hensley considers the Ravens to be a “perfect landing spot” for recently released WR Jeremy Maclin.
  • Hensley mentions that the Ravens can offer Maclin plenty of opportunity, a strong-armed quarterback and a reunion with his former offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg.
  • The one issue for the Ravens is that they are among the team’s with the least available cap space to work with at less than $5 million. They could free up some cap room by reworking some contracts, but that pushes money down the road.
