NFC East Notes: Eagles, Giants, Redskins



  • The Athletic’s Jay Glazer writes that he believes Giants GM Dave Gettleman was close to being fired at the end of this past season and was able to keep his job after presenting a plan to ownership of how he would turn the team around in 2020. If he doesn’t follow through, Glazer believes Gettleman will be fired at the end of 2020. 
  • Per SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano, new Giants LB Blake Martinez said DC Patrick Graham, who he grew “super close” with when he was his LB coach for a year with the Packers, was a big draw bringing him to New York: “He’s probably the smartest coach I’ve ever been around.”
  • Martinez said the Packers don’t value inside linebackers and said there was a misconception about him because he was “taught and told to be the clean-up crew guy.” (Pat Leonard)


Redskins HC Ron Rivera has been consistent since taking the job that the new staff won’t just give QB Dwayne Haskins the starting job because he was a first-round pick last year. Competition has been the theme of Rivera’s messaging surrounding the quarterback position and that’s ostensibly what QB Kyle Allen, brought over in a trade from the Panthers, will bring to the team. However, Rivera allowed that Haskins will at least begin camp as Washington’s starting quarterback. 

“That’s what we’re going into camp believing, but they’re going to compete,” Rivera said in a radio interview on WFNZ, via NBC Sports’ Peter King. “We really like what we have in terms of our young quarterbacks. Kyle a young guy who has a live arm, understands the game, understands how we do things, so I’m excited about what the potential could be.”
