NFC East Notes: Cowboys, Eagles, Redskins



  • Ed Werder notes that contract length is still the biggest issue between the Cowboys and QB Dak PrescottWerder adds that a contract of more than four years is a “non-starter” for Prescott.
  • Werder reports that there isn’t a new offer from the Cowboys and the two sides have not negotiated for more than a month. However, Werder mentions that they’re close enough on APY – nearly $35M – that his source feels they’re in striking range of having a deal in place before the July 15 deadline. 
  • According to Todd Archer, Prescott has loss-of-value and disability insurance policies and multiyear endorsement deals that all together are valued at more than $50 million as of September 2019.
  • Calvin Watkins reports that there’s “no interest” right now in trading for Jets S Jamal Adams from the Cowboys’ perspective. Watkins mentions that Adams and Jets have held talks about a new deal since January and while there isn’t any animosity between the two sides, Adams is open to a trade.


  • James Palmer mentions that the Eagles believe they already have an advantage of the rest of their division due to the fact that they are on the only team not bringing in a new coaching staff. 
  • Palmer adds that the team is also expecting big things from second-year RB Miles Sanders, who the Eagles believe is a jack of all trades. 


Redskins RB Adrian Peterson made it clear that he isn’t worried about the increased competition at running back this year. 

“I’ve always had the mindset of being open to competition,” Peterson said, via “So I will embrace it the same way. People ask me that question all the time — ‘Man, the Redskins are really packing that running back room, huh?’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, they are.’ But hey … just gotta execute and produce.”

The Redskins signed Peyton Barber and J.D. McKissic this offseason and later drafted Antonio Gibson in the third round.

Both of those guys are talented, especially the young guy coming in,” Peterson said. “It was a good move. When you’ve got good players and playmakers out there, you want to add those guys to the team.”

Washington’s backfield also includes Peterson, Derrius Guice, Bryce Love and Josh Ferguson.
