- ESPN’s Todd Archer writes that he thinks the Cowboys will re-sign WR Randall Cobb and FB Jamize Olawale, along with the obvious priorities of QB Dak Prescott and WR Amari Cooper.
- Archer thinks the Cowboys will need to use a second-round tender on restricted free agent TE Blake Jarwin, while also looking to retain RFA QB Cooper Rush at a lower figure than the $2.1 million tender.
- Archer doesn’t think Dallas will re-sign WR Tavon Austin, G Xavier Su’a-Filo or OT Cameron Fleming.
- Cowboys C Joe Looney might find a better opportunity in free agency, per Archer.
- Archer also notes neither the Cowboys nor TE Jason Witten will be in a rush to get a deal done.
- Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News mentions Vikings CB Trae Waynes, Chiefs CB Bashaud Breeland and Saints CB Eli Apple as names to watch for the Cowboys in free agency.
- 94WIP’s Eliot Shorr-Parks points out that with two third-round picks and three fourth-round picks, assuming the compensatory projections are correct, the Eagles have plenty of ammunition to get Lions CB Darius Slay in a trade.
- NJ.com’s Mike Kaye lists some potential targets for the Eagles at linebacker following the decision to move on from LB Nigel Bradham, including Saints LB A.J. Klein, Bears LB Kevin Pierre-Louis, Falcons LB De’Vondre Campbell and Jets LB Neville Hewitt.
- Kaye also lists Rams LB Cory Littleton and Packers LB Blake Martinez but says they’ll likely be more expensive than what Philadelphia prefers to invest in at linebacker.
- Other cheap depth options for the Eagles in free agency include Colts WR Chester Rogers and Jets OT Kelvin Beachum. (Kaye)
- According to the Athletic’s Dan Duggan, the Giants and DL Leonard Williams have not yet had substantive negotiations as of late last week.
- Duggan adds there’s a good chance Williams tests the open market as a free agent unless the Giants blow him away with an offer.
- He also adds the franchise tag is an option for New York, which is highly motivated to keep Williams after trading multiple picks for him at the deadline in 2019.
- However, Duggan points out that there’s a good chance of conflict over what position Williams gets tagged as. The Giants would prefer to tag him as a defensive tackle, which is nearly $5 million cheaper than the tag for defensive ends. Williams received the fifth-year option as a defensive tackle from the Jets, but is currently planning to file a grievance to be classified as a defensive end.
