NFC East Notes: Eagles, Giants, Redskins



The Eagles have Richard Rodgers, Joshua Perkins and Will Tye competing for the No. 3 tight end job this summer behind Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert.

They’ve obviously got to be able to do everything we ask them to do,” Eagles TEs coach Justin Peelle said, via Mike Kaye of “That’s tough, I was in that role once or twice. You’ve got to be able to step onto the field without getting any of the reps.”

Peelle added that he’s confident in all three of these tight ends.

“Will, Perk and Rodgers are very smart players,” Peelle said. “I’ve got no worries with that.


Odell Beckham Jr mentioned in an interview with Complex that he felt being with the Giants began to stunt his growth “mentally, physically, spiritually, [and] everything I felt capable of doing.”

“I can’t wait to get going. I just felt with the Giants I was just stuck at a place that wasn’t working for me anymore. I felt like I wasn’t going to be able to reach my full potential there; mentally, physically, spiritually, everything I felt capable of doing, I just couldn’t see it happening there,” Beckham said. “So I think allowing me to be in an environment where I can be myself and give it a different approach, I feel like my football will benefit. I’m just excited about being able to play football again and not have to deal with all the other stuff and politics that came with my previous role.”


Redskins inside linebackers coach Rob Ryan is working as a position coach for the first time since 2003 when he coached linebackers for the Patriots. Since then, Ryan has had several jobs as a defensive coordinator, but none since he was fired by the Bills in 2016. 

“When you’re out of a job, you need people to step up and help you,” Ryan said via Jake Kring-Schrelfels of the team’s website. “I’m not a charity case at all, I’m a great coach. But to be out of work that long makes no sense. It made no sense. But it humbles you and you come back with a good attitude.”
