NFC East Rumors: Cowboys, Eagles, Giants, Redskins

     

Cowboys

Cowboys HC Jason Garrett said they“certainly” wants to re-sign WR Cole Beasley and would like to keep him around for a “long, long time.”

So we certainly want Cole Beasley back. Again he’s made a huge impact on our team. We want him with our team as we go forward for a long, long time. But business will creep into that on both sides,” said Garrett, per Calvin Watkins

  • According to Todd Archer, the Cowboys are scheduled to meet with David Canter, the agent for DE DeMarcus Lawrence, Friday about an extension. 
  • Calvin Watkins reports that the Cowboys have plans to meet with CB Byron Jones’ agents this weekend.

Eagles

Eagles HC Doug Pederson said backup QB Nate Sudfeld has “put himself in position” to compete for the No. 2 quarterback role. 

He’s really put himself in a position to compete for it. We just don’t go around and give out jobs. But at the same time, we want him to compete for that spot. We feel like he’s earned the opportunity to do that,” said Pederson, via Zach Berman

Giants

  • Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray said he’d “love to play in New York” with the Giants, but added: “I don’t get to pick myself.” (Bob McManaman)
  • Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins will meet with the Giants Friday night. (Pat Leonard)
  • A source tells Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News that the Giants showed interest in Eagles QB Nick Foles in recent weeks. 
  • However, the team plans to keep Eli Manning in place as their quarterback and likely focus on “the Kansas City model” of adding a young prospect to develop behind him. 
  • Leonard spoke to a source who said that Giants HC Pat Shurmur watched the full 2018 seasons of several QBs, including Duke’s Daniel Jones and West Virginia’s Will Grier. If the Giants decide to draft a position player at No. 6 overall, it’s possible they could look to acquire another first-round pick to trade up for a quarterback. 
  • Leonard says that Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins would be the most likely target if Giants GM Dave Gettleman selected a quarterback at No. 6 overall, but there are no guarantees he’ll still be available at that point. 
  • Ryan Dunleavy reports that Giants free agent DE Kerry Wynn is expected to have a much deeper market than last year and should be able to secure a multi-year contract. A source tells Dunleavy that the Giants are interested in re-signing Wynn.
