NFC Notes: Commanders, Eagles, Giants


Commanders OC Scott Turner said first-round WR Jahan Dotson is showing an ability to separate from coverage and make receptions in OTAs. 

“He’s done a nice job. He came in and it looks like it’s not too big for him,” Turner said, via Ethan Cadeux of NBC Sports. “He’s playing fast, he’s consistently getting separation and he’s catching the ball.”

Commanders RB J.D. McKissic is “shocked” with how quickly Dotson is learning their offense. 

“Just to see a young rookie come in and be so developed. He’s developed, he’s running crisp routes. I’m very shocked how [quickly] he’s learned the offense,” McKissic said. “He’s doing incredible. He’s learning the offense, flying around and making plays.”

Turner thinks that they will be able to do “a lot of things” with Dotson next season. 

“The guys like him. Carson [and] the quarterbacks like throwing the ball to him,” Turner said. “So, just continuing to have him work and get better. There’s a lot of things we’ll be able to do with him.”

Giants’ backup QB Davis Webb called Daniel Jones the “smartest quarterback I’ve been around” and thinks he has a “high ceiling” under HC Brian Daboll, OC Mike Kafka, and QBs coach Shea Tierney. 

“Daniel is a competitive, competitive dude. He’s super smart. Probably the smartest quarterback I’ve been around. He has a high, high, high ceiling and I think Dabes, Shea and Mike are going to help him reach it,” Webb said, via the Breaking Big Blue Podcast.
