NFC Notes: Cowboys, Eagles, Giants


  • According to’s Mike Fisher, a source said the Cowboys have not made a “recent bid” for S Jamal Adams, who was traded to the Seahawks from the Jets. 
  • The NFL and NFLPA are discussing a 2021 salary cap floor of $175 million, which is down from the $198.2 million this year. It’s possible that the figure could be pushed higher, depending on the revenue losses incurred by the league from the 2020 season.
  • Jason Fitzgerald of projects the Cowboys to have $2,842,430 of cap space next year, assuming the cap is set at $175 million.


  •’s Mike Kaye writes Eagles LBs Nathan Gerry, T.J. Edwards and third-round rookie Davion Taylor are the only roster locks heading into camp. 
  • Kaye says Gerry is projected as a three-down starter, while Edwards is the favorite to start at middle linebacker, at least on rushing downs. Taylor is viewed as a long-term project and could be limited to special teams as a rookie. 
  • Kaye mentions the Eagles could keep just five linebackers on the final roster, with Duke Riley, Alex Singleton, free agent Jatavis Brown and sixth-round rookie Shaun Bradley competing for the final two or three slots. 
  • Brown’s $910,000 salary is the highest of the entire linebacker group, per Kaye, but if he can’t beat out Edwards for the middle linebacker spot, he’s not a lock to make the team. 


  • Per SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano, nothing official has been decided regarding Giants CB Deandre Baker and he’s still proceeding as if he will report to camp on Tuesday. 
  • Vacchiano says the commissioner’s exempt list is a possibility for Baker as he waits for a resolution to charges for alleged armed robbery. 
  • Giants released K Aldrick Rosas. (NFLTR)
  • Giants signed K Chandler Catanzaro. (NFLTR)
