NFC Notes: Cowboys, Eagles, Washington

     

Cowboys

  • Over The Cap’s Nick Korte analyzes how incentives have changed the compensatory pick formula and notes the Raiders gave DT Maliek Collins and S Jeff Heath deals that could boost their value and award higher picks to the Cowboys. 
  • Korte says Dallas could get a fifth-round pick for Collins in addition to the third, fourth and fifth-round picks they’re slated to receive. If both Collins and Heath are valued as sixth-rounders, Dallas could get a sixth. 

Eagles

  • Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer says the Eagles still have not requested an interview with Chiefs QB coach Mike Kafka and he’s been told Kafka is no longer a candidate. 
  • Over The Cap’s Nick Korte analyzes how incentives have changed the compensatory pick formula and notes the Eagles could be hurt by it due to a sixth-round comp pick they were slated to receive being pushed past the 32-pick limit. 
  • Philadelphia would receive just a sixth-round pick for the loss of RB Jordan Howard.
  • Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer mentions Colts DB coach Jonathan Gannon as a candidate to join the Eagles as defensive coordinator if they hire Josh McDaniels as head coach. 

Washington

  • Per Nicki Jhabvala of the Washington Post, Washington QB Alex Smith told CBS News’ Norah O’Donnell that he suffered a bone bruise to his surgically repaired leg and not just a calf injury as was reported by the team. 
  • NBC Sports’ JP Finlay said Panthers WR Curtis Samuel would make a ton of sense as a free agent target for Washington given his history with HC Ron Rivera and his familiarity with the offense. Samuel also won’t cost as much as some of the top-tier options on the market.
