NFC East Notes: Cowboys, Eagles, Giants



Eagles HC Doug Pederson said Friday that Carson Wentz will be their quarterback of the future.

I can stand here and say that Carson is our quarterback,” Pederson said, via Pro Football Talk. “He’s our quarterback in the future. That’s why we drafted him. It’s also why we have Nick here as a backup, as a veteran player to — I don’t want to say bail us out, but to come in and execute the offense. I think we just continue to reconfirm that with Carson and let him know that. Continue to say, ‘Hey, listen you’re going to be here for a long time, have a long career.’ We just have to commit to that and communicate that to him and let that kind of sink in.

  • Jimmy Kempski of Philly Voice doesn’t think the Eagles should have interest in trading for Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey, who could reportedly be available next year. Kempski points out that any team trading for Ramsey will need to sign him to a long-term extension and the Eagles are projected to be tight against the cap.
  • Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery told reporters that he’s still recovering from the illness that has kept him out the past two practices, but he expects to play in Week 16. (Zach Berman)
  • Vikings DE Ifeadi Odenigbo said Friday that the Eagles were coming after him hard to sign to their active roster. (Chris Tomasson)
