Albert Breer can see Cowboys third-round WR Michael Gallup making an immediate impact this season after turning heads in offseason workouts.
Cowboys executive VP Stephen Jones also brought up Gallup unprompted when speaking to Breer.
“He was inconsistent, but he showed why he was highly thought of coming out of college—he made some really rare plays out there,” Jones said. “And it should only get better, and his consistency should get better too as he matures.”
Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com takes a look at the Eagles’ 2019 free agents and their chances of signing an extension with Philadelphia.
- Some players Rosenblatt can see moving on or possibly retiring next year include DE Brandon Graham, RB Jay Ajayi, QB Nick Foles, LT Jason Peters, WR Mike Wallace, RB Darren Sproles, G Chance Warmack, and DT Haloti Ngata.
- Regarding Ajayi, Rosenblatt writes that he could be in for a breakout season, given that he has a great opportunity to be the team’s main running back. However, that could result in a higher price tag and there have been concerns about Ajayi’s knees since he entered the NFL.
- Eagles CB Ronald Darby is an intriguing player to watch this year, given that he could be a potential trade candidate. There’s also the possibility that the Eagles could hold on to him and consider re-signing him next year if puts together an impressive 2018 season, according to Rosenblatt.
- Rich Tandler of NBC Washington expects Quinton Dunbar to take Bashaud Breeland’s spot on the outside this year.
- From there, Tandler says that veteran Orlando Scandrick will probably be the Redskins’ starting slot cornerback. Tandler does, however, admit that Scandrick is likely a downgrade from Kendall Fuller, who was traded to the Chiefs in the Alex Smith deal.
- Tandler considers second-year CB Fabian Moreau to be the “wildcard” in the team’s secondary and says that the feeling right now is that won’t remain a reserve.
