NFC East Notes: Cowboys, Giants, Redskins



  • According to NFL Media’s Jane Slater, former Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is working out at a facility near Dallas headquarters and not officially working out for the team. 
  • Bryant has texted Cowboys EVP Stephen Jones asking for a workout. Jones acknowledged he had received the text but no workout has been scheduled yet. 
  • Slater notes that last year the Cowboys brought up the question six times during team meetings of whether QB Dak Prescott was “their guy.”
  • She adds, however, that new Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy believes he can make Prescott great. 



  • Pro Football Network’s Tony Pauline writes both Redskins HC Ron Rivera and owner Daniel Snyder are on the same page about drafting Ohio State DE Chase Young at No. 2 overall. 
  • Pauline adds a source told him Redskins LT Trent Williams will return to the team because of Rivera. 
  • The Athletic’s Ben Standig identifies Redskins LB Cole Holcomb as a potential breakout candidate after a strong rookie season. 
  • Redskins LB Ryan Kerrigan is much more likely to be extended than to be released, as he’s one of Snyder’s favorite players. (John Keim)
  • Keim mentions one talent evaluator thinks the Redskins could get a third or fourth-round pick in exchange for CB Quinton Dunbar.
  • Keim says Redskins OT Morgan Moses won’t be on the hot seat until 2021, when Washington will be able to save $7.75 million by moving on. For now, he’s safe.
