NFC East Notes: Cowboys, Eagles, Giants



  • TMZ Sports reports that Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott will not face any criminal charges stemming from the Las Vegas altercation with a security guard.
  • According to TMZ, police documents show that Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department met with prosecutors late last month and determined that they could not move forward with charges against Elliott based on the evidence they had. 
  • Mike Fisher reports that Elliott returning from his trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico is not an indication of any movement with his contract negotiations. 


  • The Eagles signed veteran QB Josh McCown to a one-year contract that includes $2 million fully guaranteed and can increase up to $5.4 million, according to reports. 
  • Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk writes that McCown is clearly more than just a camp arm with this kind of guaranteed money in his contract and it’s likely he’ll operate as the Eagles’ No. 2 quarterback. 
  • Florio says that the addition of McCown also raises “significant questions” about whether Nate Sudfeld (wrist) will be on the opening-day roster. 
  • Florio adds that Sudfeld, Cody Kessler, and/or rookie Clayton Thorson could be the odd men out unless Philadelphia plans to carry four quarterbacks on their active roster.

Giants HC Pat Shurmur says they aren’t surprised by the play of first-round QB Daniel Jones this preseason. 

People outside of our building seem surprised. We’re not. That’s why we picked him. And I think he’s making good progress as he goes along here. He’s checking off all the boxes. When it’s his time to play he will be ready. I’m pleased with the progress he’s making,” Shurmur said, via Pro Football Talk

Jones admitted that there were “some ups and downs” during his recent performance. 

“Definitely some ups and downs. You’ve got to take care of the ball is the first thing, with those two fumbles, that will be something to focus on for sure,” Jones said. “A lot of things to learn, a lot of things to build off of.”
