NFC East Rumors: Cowboys, Eagles, Giants, Redskins



  • ESPN’s Josina Anderson says the Cowboys have told her they won’t be involved in a bidding war for S Earl Thomas or other top safeties: “We have a value we would go to for the player.”


  • According to Jeff McLane, the Eagles inquired about trades for other speedy receivers including Kenny Stills of the Dolphins.
  • Jason La Canfora previously reported that the Eagles’ exploring receiver trades led to a strong perception among other teams they would move on from WR Nelson Agholor rather than pay him $9 million. After trading for DeSean Jackson, La Canfora says that sense is “even stronger now.”
  • However, Jeff McLane reports that Agholor is likely to remain with the Eagles and may not need a new contract to be back.
  • McLane says it would likely take an attractive offer to pry Agholor away from the Eagles.


  • According to Dan Graziano, the Giants are likely to target S Deone Bucannon.
  • Graziano reports that the Giants still had no active trade talks involving WR Odell Beckham Jr and he seriously doubts ownership signs off on a trade that would leave the Giants with $16 million in dead money on their cap.
  • However, Graziano says there are teams including the 49ers and Browns still hoping to talk the Giants out of Beckham and people around the league believe such a move isn’t impossible for the right price.
  • According to the NY Daily News’ Pat Leonard, pending Ravens free agent LB Za’Darius Smith is a target for the Giants. However, New York might not be able to afford the $10 million a season people around the league believe Smith will command.  
  • Former Colts CB Pierre Desir is another top target for the Giants, as they prioritize adding a veteran corner.  (Ryan Dunleavy)
