NFC East Notes: Cowboys, Eagles, Giants, Redskins


  • According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, there’s some buzz in league circles that the Cowboys could explore trading away some of their high-priced assets on the offensive line. The most tradable asset is LT Tyron Smith who has four years left on his deal between $10 million and $13.6 million in salaries.

  • Cowboys G Connor Williams said he is 13 weeks removed from ACL surgery, has begun field exercises, and is on track to be healthy for the start of next season. (Alex Marvez)
  • Cowboys ILB Justin March-Lillard‘s one year, $1.047 million deal includes a signing bonus of $137,500 and a base salary of $910,000. (Aaron Wilson)


Returning home to Philadelphia was a big draw for new Eagles S Will Parks, who had a competitive market for his services after leaving the Broncos. The other major factor was the opportunity to step into the starting role vacated by Malcolm Jenkins. However, Parks is currently just on a one-year deal, so he knows he has just one shot. 

“I’ve got to prove myself,” Parks said via the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Les Bowen. “At the end of the day, we can talk about this and talk about that, but I haven’t played here yet . . . I’ve got to put myself in position to talk about that.”

  • The Athletic’s Matt Barrows points out there were rumors about a trade of RB Matt Breida to the Eagles last year and his sense was the 49ers used the second-round tender on Breida to be able to trade him later. 
  • Eagles CB Darius Slay‘s three-year, $50.05 million deal includes a $13 million signing bonus, base salaries of $1.05 million, $12 million, $16 million and $17 million, and a $500,000 workout bonus in 2021-2023. (Jeff McLane)
  • Slay also has a $550,000 base escalator for 2020 by hitting two out of three qualifiers, including the Pro Bowl, interceptions and playing time. (Aaron Wilson)
  • Before trading for Slay, the Eagles were one of the teams in the running for CB Chris Harris, who signed with the Chargers. (McLane)


  • Per ESPN’s Field Yates, Giants S Nate Ebner‘s one-year, $2 million deal includes a $950,000 roster bonus and a $1.05 million base salary.


  • Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer writes that there have been suitors for Redskins LT Trent Williams, but his understanding is that Williams’ contract demands have been the biggest problem in getting a deal done. 
  • NBC Sports’ JP Finlay could see the Redskins trading one of their running backs if they are able to enter training camp with a “glut of good healthy” players at the position.
