NFC East Notes: Eagles, Giants, Redskins



Eagles DT Timmy Jernigan returning to the Eagles was somewhat of an upset after Philadelphia declined his $11 million option earlier this offseason. Jernigan missed the first 10 games of 2018 with a back injury, then missed an additional three after coming back.  He re-signed for only $1.25 million. 

“I’d rather not look back on that situation. It is what it is. It’s over,” Jernigan said via Dave Spadaro of the team’s website. “My focus is on what’s going on now. I’m just excited about what we’ve got going on here.”


  • Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer writes that while first-round QB Daniel Jones could take over for QB Eli Manning early in the season, the likelihood is Jones sees the field once the Giants have been eliminated from contention. 
  • Breer says Jones could see the field earlier if he’s clearly better than Manning and the latter struggles. 


Redskins QB Case Keenum believes he’s in a situation in Washington that will help him grow as a quarterback. 

“To be able to have a chance too, to work with coach Gruden…those guys upstairs, all the great offensive minds, I think it has brought my game to the next level,” Keenum said via USA Today’s Chris Roling
