NFC East Notes: Cowboys, Eagles, Redskins

     

Cowboys

  • According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Cowboys have hired Giants TE coach Lunda Wells to the same position on their staff. 
  • Per NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo, the Cowboys are interviewing former Browns WR coach Adam Henry for the same position. 

Eagles

  • Jimmy Kempski of the Philly Voice writes that the Eagles coaching staff loves DE Derek Barnett and it’s likely Philadephia exercises his fifth-year option. 
  • Kempski also thinks the team could choose to bring back DE Vinny Curry on a short deal, while Shareef Miller, Joe Ostman and Daeshon Hall are all on the bubble for camp right now. 
  • The Athletic’s Zach Berman says upgrading the receiving corps this offseason is a priority for the Eagles, but it will be difficult with the significant cap hits tied to veteran WRs Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson
  • Jackson is more likely to be back than Jeffery, but unless the Eagles are willing to give another team a draft pick to eat Jeffery’s contract, there’s a good chance he’s back in 2020. 
  • Berman lists Clemson WR Tee Higgins, Colorado WR Laviska Shenault, LSU WR Justin Jefferson, Arizona State WR Brandon Aiyuk, TCU WR Jalen Reagor and Penn State WR K.J. Hamler as potential draft options in the early rounds. 
  • Though the Eagles had interest in Jets WR Robby Anderson at the trade deadline, their current cap situation might preclude them from being able to add him in free agency. 
  • Other bargain options include Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson, Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett and Packers WR Geronimo Allison.
  • Berman also mentions Titans WR Corey Davis and Bengals WR John Ross as two players who could be available for trade as their fifth-year options are expected to be declined. 

Redskins

New Redskins OC Scott Turner said he doesn’t have any misgivings about joining Washington after his dad, Norv Turner, ended his tenure as a head coach in D.C. by being fired after seven years. Current Redskins owner Dan Snyder pulled the plug on the elder Turner the year after buying the team when Scott was 19, but Scott had nothing but positive things to say about being back. 

“It’s a dream come true to come back here,” Turner said via ESPN’s John Keim. “It’s pretty surreal. This is where I consider home. To come back here and be the offensive coordinator for this franchise is really awesome.”
