NFC East Notes: Cowboys, Giants, Redskins

     

Cowboys

  • According to Pro Football Talk, the NFL is investigating an incident involving Cowboys DT Tyrone Crawford.
  • TMZ published a video of a fight that appears to show Crawford brawling with several security members at a bar.
  • Crawford was not arrested or criminally charged, but could still face NFL discipline.  He started 15 games for Dallas in 2018. 

Giants

Giants HC Pat Shurmur said he was in agreement with GM Dave Gettleman regarding the trade of WR Odell Beckham.  

“Absolutely,’’ Shurmur said via Paul Schwartz of the New York Post. “Everything we do behind the scenes, coaching and roster building, is collaborative,’’ 

Shurmur said he thought the Giants got a fair return for their star receiver.  

“My reaction is always the case with trades, it’s good for both parties,’’ Shurmur said. “We feel good about what we got. We got a starting safety, we got a first-round pick and we got our third-round pick. We felt it was good for us and, because we were able to come to an agreement, Cleveland thought it was good for them.’’ 

Shurmur also tried to project a strong front with Gettleman amid questions about the Giants’ approach this offseason.  

“We’ve gone into this offseason knowing we have to build,’’ he said. “I don’t like the word ‘rebuild.’ We’re building. Dave has a plan, we have a plan and we’re just moving forward.’’ 

Redskins

  • League sources have told Jason La Canfora that the Redskins are already among the team’s “sniffing around” and showing interest in quarterback prospects.
  • If the Cardinals select Kyler Murray at No. 1 overall, as many expect, and the 49ers follow up by grabbing Nick Bosa at No. 2 overall, La Canfora could see the Jets being in good position to trade down with a team looking to get ahead of the Giants for a quarterback such as Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins
  • La Canfora wonders if the Jets would be willing to drop all the way back to No. 15 overall, but says they’d likely do so “for the right price.”
