NFC East Notes: Cowboys, Giants, Redskins

     

Cowboys

With a full season of WR Amari Cooper and a healthy offensive line fueled by the return of C Travis Frederick, Cowboys QB Dak Prescott sees all the pieces in place for a successful 2019 in Dallas. 

“My expectations are high,” Prescott said via Jon Machota. “Not necessarily any ceiling on what I can do or what this team can do. It’s just been about work. … Working to get better in every aspect of my game, making sure my teammates are doing the same. We’re excited for the position we’re in.”

Giants

  • According to Ryan Dunleavy, Giants OT Mike Remmers did not take a single snap during spring OTA’s and minicamp as he continues to recover from offseason back surgery. 
  • The Giants signed Remmers to a one-year, $2.5 million deal to compete with Chad Wheeler for the starting right tackle position.
  • Dunleavy says another position battle to keep an eye on include Jon Halapio vs Spencer Pulley at center.
  • Cornerback is also hotly contested, with Sam Beal and first-round rookie DeAndre Baker battling for the No. 2 outside corner and Grant Haley vs fourth-round rookie Julian Love for starting nickelback. 
  • Dunleavy mentions LB B.J. Goodson and WR Corey Coleman as the leaders for the No. 2 linebacker and No. 3 wide receiver roles. 
  • Per Dunleavy, RBs Wayne Gallman, Paul Perkins and Rod Smith are competing for the backup running back spot, with at least one of the three a likely roster cut. 

Redskins

Redskins second-year DT Daron Payne is looking build off of a rookie season where he recorded 56 tackles and five sacks. 

“Really about to get back into it,” Payne said via USA Today’s Zachary Neel“Try to train a little bit harder and get ready for camp.”

“I think this year coming into it, I just feel like I feel more comfortable and things are just coming easier,” Payne added.
