NFC East Notes: Cowboys, Eagles, Giants



Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones said contract negotiations with QB Dak Prescott are “going well” but added there is not a “definitive answer” until a deal is reached. 

I’d generally say going well. These things never have a definitive answer. Because you never know if you’ve done it until you’ve done it,” said Jones, via Ian Rapoport. 

Jones confirmed that the Cowboys have also begun speaking with RB Ezekiel Elliottand others” as well. 

  • Cowboys DE Robert Quinn explained his decision to facilitate a trade to Dallas. “I made my commitment to be a Cowboy. One, Coach Marinelli and the D-line. I love the way they play. When I walked into the building and met with the coaches, it felt right.” (Jon Machota)
  • Cowboys HC Jason Garrett said LB Leighton Vander Esch was held out of Wednesday’s practice due to a “pelvic issue he’s been dealing with.” (Jon Machota)
  • Cowboys rookie RB Mike Weber returned to practice on Wednesday after getting an MRI on his knee last week. The good news for Weber is that the MRI showed no ligament damage.


Eagles RB Jordan Howard doesn’t look at the team’s decision to draft RB Miles Sanders in round two as being a slight on him.

He’s just adding to the room, just enhancing us,” Howard said, via “…I think we complement each other very well. He’s very shifty, but at the same time, he’s powerful, so he can do a lot of things.

  • While Eagles VP of Player Personnel Joe Douglas has been connected to the Jets’ GM job for weeks now, a high ranking source with the Eagles tells Dianna Russini that they are “operating business as usual…but obviously we have heard the reports.
  • According to Adam Caplan, the Eagles signed OL Stefen Wisniewski to a one-year deal worth $1.5 million that includes $250,000 fully guaranteed.


Giants OLB Markus Golden says he feels “like myself again” after suffering a torn ACL a few years ago. 

“Hey, I would retire if I didn’t feel like that,” Golden said, via the New York Daily News. “As hard as I work every day, to make sure I can put myself in that position. So of course you want to feel like that. I know I can help the team.”
