NFC East Notes: Cowboys, Eagles, Giants

     

Cowboys

Cowboys’ veteran WR Randall Cobb said he is “continuing to build chemistry” with QB Dak Prescott. 

The biggest thing for me is just continuing to build chemistry with him,” Cobb said, via ProFootballTalk. “We’re both very open about talking through things. The more communication we have, the more we’ll be on the same page.”

Prescott said he’s had a “fast connection” with Cobb this offseason and added the veteran “does it right the first time.”

We’ve had a fast connection. You take something, approach something, go out there and he does it right the first time,” said Prescott. “When you have a guy like that, it allows you to cut the ball loose; it allows you to anticipate. It allows you to trust he’s going to be in the right spot, and he hasn’t failed in doing that. The moment he does and even sometimes he does it’s always a consistent feedback and we’re going to talk about it. What we could’ve done, what we should’ve done and, like I said, it serves you well.”

Eagles

Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com writes that Eagles’ players and coaches have “raved” about WR DeSean Jackson, who is “embracing” his role as a veteran and leader. 

Eagles’ WRs coach Carson Walch said Jackson has “done everything” they’ve asked of him this offseason. 

He’s done everything we’ve asked him to do,” said Walch. “He’s been great in the meeting room. Some of our young guys sometimes are in awe seeing DeSean Jackson in our building.

Rosenblatt also points out that Eagles’ veteran LT Jason Peters has “wholeheartedly embraced” being a mentor to first-round OT Andre Dillard, while Eagles HC Doug Pederson said Dillard is getting a “great picture” of how to be a left tackle. 

This is a good time for Dillard’s standpoint,” Pederson said. “To watch Jason operate and move and really get a great picture of what it’s like to be a left tackle in this league.”

Pederson said he expects second-round RB Miles Sanders (hamstring) to be ready for training camp and the team must examine where he is “mentally” after missing OTAs and minicamp. 

I fully expect him to come in ready, come in healthy, ready to go,” Pederson said. “We have to get him in the mix early. Definitely have to see exactly where he is mentally from all the mental reps that he took this spring, and slowly work him into the mix and see just how he can help us on game day.”
