NFC East Rumors: Cowboys, Eagles, Giants, Redskins


  • Chris Mortensen reports that the Cowboys don’t believe there is any disrespect in regards to their decision to place the franchise tag on QB Dak Prescott.
  • Team sources tell Mortensen that they’ve offered Prescott more than Carson Wentz and Jared Goff received in their extension. However, the issue has been the length of the deal, as the Cowboys want a five-year commitment while Prescott is holding out for a four-year deal. 
  • NFL Media’s Jane Slater says the Cowboys are expected to turn their attention toward making a run to re-sign DE Robert Quinn at some point. 
  • Cowboys TE Blake Jarwin‘s four-year, $22 million deal had $9.25 million guaranteed, including a $4 million signing bonus and $2.25 million 2020 base salary. Jarwin’s $3.5 million 2021 base salary is guaranteed for injury. He has base salaries of $4.5 million and $5.5 million the final two years. (Aaron Wilson)
  • Jarwin also can make up to $750,000 in per-game active roster bonuses as well as a $750,000 incentive for playing time and receptions in 2021-2023. 



  • ESPN’s Jordan Raanan says the Giants are expected to target Titans CB Logan Ryan andPackers LB Blake Martinez in free agency. 
  • Raanan says the Giants also had interest in Vikings S Anthony Harris before he was franchise-tagged. 
  • According to SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano, the Giants do not plan to tender restricted free agent C Jon Halapio. However, New York could still bring him back as he recovers from his Achilles injury. 


  • ESPN’s John Keim writes that he thinks the Redskins’ interest in TE Austin Hooper cooled once they saw the price tag. Hooper reset the tight end market with his deal with the Browns. 
  • The Redskins are not expected to tender pending restricted free agent DT Treyvon Hester. (Adam Caplan)
  • Redskins LB Jon Bostic‘s two-year deal includes $1.75 million guaranteed and base salaries of $960,000 and $1.69 million.
  • Bostic also receives a $500,000 roster bonus on the first day of the 2020 league year, up to $200,000 in per-game active roster bonuses in 2020, up to $400,000 in per-game bonuses in 2021 and an annual $800,000 playing time incentive. (Aaron Wilson)
