- Cowboys VP Stephen Jones said they“made a lot of progress” in contract talks with QB Dak Prescott before the deadline passed: “We still have nothing but 100 percent belief in Dak and his future here with the Dallas Cowboys, and that we can ultimately get a deal done.” (Jon Machota)

Expectations for rookies this year around the NFL will be tempered, but the Eagles could really use a big debut season from first-round WR Jalen Reagor. A lack of speed and playmaking hurt the team last year when WR DeSean Jackson got hurt, so Philadelphia zeroed in on Reagor as insurance this year and a long-term successor. The team has been easing Reagor into the offense slowly behind Jackson this spring, but the veteran has exhorted the rookie not to limit himself.
“He just told me to go in with a mission on my mind,” Reagor said via NJ.com’s Mike Kaye. “Go in with a chip on my shoulder, and just know that I can make a big contribution. It’s the reason why this organization drafted me. They believed in me. (He said) don’t just wait at the back, just go ahead and step in now.”
- When examining the largest consequences of a lowered 2021 salary cap, Joel Corry of CBS Sports mentions that the three most likely to be affected by the cap are the Eagles, Falcons, and Saints.

- Ian Rapoport notes that RB LeSean McCoy was having talks with the Eagles about a potential reunion before deciding to sign with the Buccaneers.
- Pat Leonard notes that there are a lot of connections to recently released K Graham Gano on the Giants and that the team only has unretired K Chandler Catanzaro after releasing K Aldrick Rosas.
- According to Field Yates, the Giants placed a waiver claim for CB Ryan Lewis on Thursday, but Washington had the higher priority.
