NFC Notes: Buccaneers, Cowboys, Giants



  • Greg Auman mentions that the deadline to release players for compensatory pick purposes has passed with the Buccaneers opting to hold on to WR Breshad Perriman
  • Tampa Bay could have picked up a 2020 fourth-round compensatory pick had they released Perriman Saturday. 


Cowboys QB Dak Prescott said his contract situation “doesn’t affect me” and is focused solely on playing the game at a high level.  

For me, it’s about the reasons why I play this game,” Prescott said, via Jon Machota of The Athletic. “It’s not for (the contract). All of that is a benefit. All of that is a plus. It’s great. It’s going to be great when it happens, but that has no motivation or reason for why I play this game. So it doesn’t affect me week to week. It doesn’t affect me preparing for this game or saying I’ve got to play two seasons without it. All of that stuff is going to happen. And when it happens, it’s going to be a blessing.

Prescott added that his representation is handling negotiations and his deal will be finalized “when it gets done.” 

“I have people that I trust handling that. When it gets done, it gets done,” Prescott said. 


  • Dan Duggan points out that the Giants promoting OL Evan Brown essentially confirms” that RT Mike Remmers (back) will miss Week 10’s game.
  • Duggan adds that Giants OL Nick Gates should start at right tackle with Brown serving as C Spencer Pulley‘s primary backup.  
  • Nick Korte mentions that based on the recent moves that will impact 2020 compensatory picks, the Giants now have two of their projected seventh-round picks over the 32 pick limit. This means that New York may only recoup a third-round pick and a seventh-rounder for the loss of Landon Collins and Mario Edwards.
