NFC Notes: Commanders, Cowboys, Giants


  • Commanders RB J.D. McKissic, who received interest from the Bills, said he has “much respect” for Buffalo but called Washington D.C. his home: “[My decision was] based on where I wanted to be… Washington is home.” (Nicki Jhabvala)
  • McKissic added that he has “unfinished business” with the Commanders and is fully recovered from his neck injury: “You can’t ask for a better organization to be chosen by, but I had unfinished business in Washington.

  • Commanders OL Cornelius Lucas said he “heard from a few teams” as a free agent before re-signing with Washington to a two-year deal: “I picked up a good amount of traction, more than I have in the past.
