NFC East Rumors: Cowboys, Giants, Redskins


Cowboys WR Amari Cooper said he’s more focused on getting ready for the 2019 season than contract talks, but adds his agent is keeping him updated. 

“My agent has probably talked to me three or four times about where we are in the process,” Cooper said, via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. “I really don’t think about it much. I feel like we have time. … I feel like they’re active about it and they want to get it done.”

  • Jason La Canfora is buying the talk that the Giants will take a defensive player at No. 6 and they grab a quarterback later on. 
  • Todd McShay has heard that the Giants are in the mix for Cardinals QB Josh Rosen, which may explain the buzz about them grabbing a defense at No. 6 overall. 
  • McShay is hearing that Giants GM Dave Gettleman is “pass-rusher crazed” and lists Ed Oliver or Christian Wilkins as two “real possibilities.
