NFC East Notes: Eagles, Giants, Redskins

     

Eagles

  • Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Eagles allowed the contracts for Shaun Huls, director of high performance, and Shireen Mansoori, director of rehabilitation, to expire.
  • Eagles GM Howie Roseman suggested earlier this offseason the team would evaluate its medical department after struggling with injuries the past few seasons, and McLane says more changes could be coming. 

Giants

  • SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano thinks the Giants will zero in on an offensive tackle with their first-round pick at No. 4 overall unless by some miracle Ohio State DE Chase Young slips. 
  • Vacchiano has New York selecting Iowa OT Tristan Wirfs with Georgia OT Andrew Thomas also receiving consideration. 
  • The Giants are hiring former Cowboys offensive assistant Stephen Brown to the same position. Brown worked as an assistant to HC Jason Garrett and also helped coach the running backs. (Adam Caplan)

Redskins

Tight end has become an even bigger question mark for the Redskins following the retirement of Vernon Davis on Monday. With Jordan Reed still on injured reserve, the only other two tight ends on Washington’s roster right now are Jeremy Sprinkle and Hale Hentges. Someone not on the roster right now will likely be the Redskins’ starter in 2020, perhaps even former Panthers TE Greg Olsen, who’s slated for a free-agent visit. 

“Do we have our tight end? Probably not,” new Redskins HC Ron Rivera said on Redskins Nation via NBC Sports’ JP Finlay. “That’s a big question mark.” 

Rivera also admitted the Redskins are “not sure on [Reed] as far as health.” The veteran tight end has an extensive injury history and missed the entire 2019 season recovering from a concussion. If Washington were to release him, it could save about $9 million in cap space.
