Cowboys LB Sean Lee is well aware of the fact that he’s going to have to step up in terms of being a leader for the team after they’ve lost some notable veterans in recent years including TE Jason Witten.
“There is no question that I need to step up because he’s gone,” Lee said last month, via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News.
Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com updated his 53-man roster projection on Monday.
- Shorr-Parks has the Eagles keeping three quarterbacks — Carson Wentz, Nick Foles, and Nate Sudfeld — which means Joe Callahan is the odd-man-out.
- At running back, Shorr-Parks has the Eagles going with Darren Sproles, Jay Ajayi, Corey Clement, and Donnel Pumphrey while parting ways with Wendell Smallwood, Matt Jones, and Josh Adams.
- According to Shorr-Parks, the Eagles trading a cornerback such as Ronald Darby or Rasul Douglas before the start of the season is “very possible.“
- Some other semi-notable roster cuts from Shorr-Parks include WR Marquess Wilson, OT Jordan Mailata, and CB D.J. Killings.
- Following the news that the sale of the Panthers franchise to David Tepper was finalized on Monday (NFLTR), the team also announced that COO Tina Becker has resigned from her position with the team after 19 seasons.
- The Panthers currently do not have a replacement lined up for Becker, but it’s clear that Tepper is starting anew in Carolina now that he’s assumed control of the team.
