NFC East Notes: Cowboys, Eagles, Giants, Redskins


  • According to NFL Media’s Jane Slater, former Cowboys WR Allen Hurns says the team did not approach him about a pay cut until Monday, just a few days before he was scheduled to report to camp. 
  • Dallas released Hurns on Tuesday and saved $5 million in cap space. 
  • Per Rob Phillips of the team website, Cowboys HC Jason Garrett said he expects to see RB Ezekiel Elliott at training camp: “Yeah, we anticipate that. I’ve heard nothing different on that.”
  • Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News reports that the Cowboys have not made “any progress” on a contract extension with CB Byron Jones.



  • Per SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano, sources say it’s not out of the question the Giants could bring back QB Eli Manning in 2020 with an extension.
  • Vacchiano’s source mentioned that Manning would have to play well and lead the Giants to the playoffs. 
  • According to ESPN’s Jordan Raanan, the Giants workout of safeties Tre Boston and Johnathan Cyprien was more due diligence. Raanan doesn’t anticipate New York signing either, as they would command starter’s salaries.
