NFC East Notes: Cowboys, Eagles, Giants, Redskins


  • Jay Glazer expects Cowboys franchise DE DeMarcus Lawrence to remain in Dallas for “a long time” and he doesn’t see the Cowboys letting him walk. 
  • According to Kate Hairopoulos, Cowboys TE Rico Gathers has reached a deal with the district attorney to plead guilty in exchange for a reduced charge.  
  • WR Randall Cobb‘s new deal has a base salary of $2 million, a signing bonus of $2 million and a total of $1 million in per-game active roster bonuses.  (Todd Archer)


  • According to Les Bowen, the signing of DE Vinny Curry could affect whether DE Chris Long decides to return to the team.
  • Long is looking for a more secure role next season, and a crowded Eagles defensive end rotation could affect that.  
  • Jeff McLane believes the Eagles wouldn’t have signed Curry unless they thought Long, who was mulling retirement, was unlikely to return.  
  • The Eagles spent time with West Virginia TE Trevon Wesco at his pro day.  (Mike Kaye)
