NFC East Notes: Cowboys, Eagles, Giants, Redskins


Cowboys executive Stephen Jones said WR Amari Cooper and QB Dak Prescott are “probably at the forefront right now” for long-term extension candidates and said Dallas could get sign two players “at the same time” if possible.

You know what, that’s probably unfair to say just because we can get two done at the same time if they fell right,” Jones said, via David Moore of the Dallas Morning News. “I mean, these things don’t have to be one at a time.

Jones added that there is no particular “pecking order” between Cooper, Prescott, RB Ezekiel Elliott, or CB Byron Jones.

I don’t think that’s fair to say there has to be a pecking order. We can work on two, three, four at the same time if it makes sense.”


  • According to Mike Kaye, Senior Bowl director Jim Nagy said three defensive linemen who could be an option for the Eagles outside of the first round are Louisiana Tech DE Jaylon Ferguson, Wyoming DE Carl Granderson and Old Dominion DE Oshane Ximines
  • Per Zack Rosenblatt, Clemson DT Christian Wilkins and Ohio State WR Parris Campbell visited the Eagles recently. 
  • This is in addition to previously reported visits from Houston DT Ed Oliver, Memphis RB Darrell Henderson, Alabama RB Josh Jacobs and Arizona State WR N’Keal Harry.
  • Rosenblatt writes that S Andrew Sendejo is in danger of not making the final roster because of the compensatory pick formula. 
  • Unless another qualifying free agent from the Eagles signs with a team before May 7, the Eagles would lose a fourth-round pick gained from the departure of WR Golden Tate or LB Jordan Hicks if Sendejo stays on the roster in 2019.


  • Ralph Vacchiano, citing multiple league sources, reports that there is “no indication” that the Cardinals have placed QB Josh Rosen on the trade block, although they are “certainly expected” to do so. 
  • According to Vacchiano, it is unclear how the Giants grade Rosen compared to the quarterbacks available in the 2019 NFL Draft. 
  • Vacchiano says that the Giants’ biggest issue with Rosen is his “personality” and that he can act “arrogant or prickly at times.”
  • Regarding what the Giants would trade for Rosen, Vacchiano mentions that New York has “no interest” in parting with the No. 6 or No. 17 overall picks, while the No. 37 pick in the second round still might be “too high” for the Giants to give up. 
  • New York does not think their No. 95 overall pick in the third-round would be enough to land Rosen in a trade, which is why it’s difficult for him to see a trade working out between the two teams. 
  • ESPN’s Jordan Raanan believes Houston DT Ed Oliver and Mississippi State DE Montez Sweat are the two most likely options for the Giants with the No. 6 pick. 
  • Ranaan says the Giants don’t appear to be high on Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins, making quarterback unlikely at that slot. 


  • ESPN’s John Keim believes a first-round pick would be too high for the Redskins to part with for QB Josh Rosen
  • However, Keim says a third-round pick is a “no-brainer” and a second-round pick should also not be a deterrent to acquiring Rosen. 
  • According to NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo, the Redskins aren’t “actively chasing” Rosen and Garafolo gets the sense Rosen won’t be traded until after the draft. 
  • Northwestern QB Clayton Thorson visited the Redskins Wednesday. (Tom Pelissero)
