NFC East Notes: Cowboys, Eagles, Redskins



Cowboys veteran LB Sean Lee says he’s “leaning toward” playing in 2019, but needs to assess his physical shape before making a final decision.

“I want to continue to play the game, but I have to evaluate physically where I’m at. I definitely have some decisions to make,” Lee said during an interview with KTCK-AM 1310, via the Dallas Morning News. “I’m leaning toward playing for sure.

“I’m going to take a month, travel a little bit with the wife, see how I feel,” Lee added. “A month or two down the line I’ll figure out where I’m at.”


Eagles GM Howie Roseman said there is “no question” that he is pleased with how the Golden Tate trade played out.

No question. When we made the trade, we were 4-4. We were looking for a spark,” Roseman said, via ProFootballTalk. “We were looking for more firepower on offense. When you talk about Golden, here is a guy who has incredible character, incredible production, can really fit any scheme. Everyone in this building was incredibly excited about adding him to our football team. We knew the price to pay. … We look back at our process, and I feel very good about our process. We’re going to be aggressive, and when we are swinging and we’re going to be aggressive, we feel like we’re going to be right a lot more than wrong. In this case, feel very good about that. And you saw the contributions that he made in a big game. The stage isn’t too big for Golden Tate.”

Tate also said that he “really enjoyed” playing with the Eagles and he hopes to sign an extension with them this offseason.

I really enjoyed my time here,” Tate said. “I really hope it’s not coming to an end. In the short time period, I’ve had a bunch of great memories.
