NFC East Rumors: Cowboys, Giants, Redskins



  • Calvin Watkins says his hunch regarding the Cowboys is that they can sign WR Amari Cooper before Dak Prescott
  • Dan Graziano says indications are that Dallas has made more progress with Cooper than they have with Prescott, and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see a Cooper extension done in the next day or so.
  • According to Graziano, Cooper’s contract is likely to be a shorter-term deal in the range of two or three years.
  • Sources close to the discussions tell Graziano that they believe the Cowboys will franchise Prescott, but it won’t be the end of negotiations.
  • Regarding Cowboys CB Byron Jones, Graziano writes he appears to be “destined to land elsewhere” and should command between $16-$17 million per year.
  • If the Cowboys lose Jones to another team, Graziano mentions veteran CB Chris Harris as a possible replacement in the secondary on a shorter-term deal.
  • Graziano reports that the Cowboys would like to bring back DE Robert Quinn, but he’s likely to generate enough from other teams to drive his price beyond what Dallas is willing to pay.


  • Dan Graziano says that Giants are worth watching for Patriots free agent DE/LB Kyle Van Noy, given that he has ties to Joe Judge and Bret Bielema.
  • Ryan Dunleavy expects the Giants to prioritize signing a veteran cornerback with slot experience and mentions Titans’ Logan Ryan as a name that “keeps popping up.”
  • Jordan Raanan’s “informed opinion” is that the Giants will likely use the transition tag on DL Leonard Williams at $13.1 million. 
  • According to Pro Football Network’s Tony Pauline, the Giants plan to address wide receiver in free agency.
  • Pauline also believes the Giants like Clemson LB Isaiah Simmons if he’s available with their first-round pick at No. 4 overall. 


  • According to Dan Graziano, there’s “a lot of chatter” connecting Panthers CB James Bradberry to the Redskins, due to his ties to Ron Rivera.
  • The Redskins haven’t found any takes for LT Trent Williams as of now. Dan Graziano says that some teams have shown interest in Williams could consider moving him to right tackle such as the Texans and have balked at Washington’s asking price.
  • Graziano says Washington is looking for a second-round pick to start for Williams.
