NFC East Notes: Cowboys, Eagles, Giants




  • 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.
