NFC Notes: Cowboys, Eagles, Washington

     

Cowboys

  • Josina Anderson recently spoke with new Cowboys’ S Keanu Neal, who says he’s playing weakside linebacker with Cowboys  and will have the flexibility to move to safety: “Being able to do both I think is a benefit and it will be able to help in the long run.”
  • Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press reports the Cowboys are one of a handful of teams in the running for C Brett Jones but “nothing is considered imminent.” The Vikings are also interested in bringing back Jones.
  • Cowboys LS Jake McQuaide‘s one-year, $1.212 million deal includes a $137,500 signing bonus and a base salary of $1.075 million. (Aaron Wilson)
  • Cowboys’ new DE Tarell Basham‘s two-year, $5.5 million deal includes a $2.5 million signing bonus, his $1.2 million salary for 2021 is guaranteed to go along with non-guaranteed $1.75 million in 2022. He can earn up to $500,000 as a playing time, sacks, and playoffs incentive, and another $250,000 annual base-salary workout de-escalator. (Aaron Wilson)

Eagles

  • According to Ian Rapoport, the Eagles’ front office viewed BYU QB Zach Wilson as a “strong prospect” but that he would not be available at No. 6 overall. In the end, Philadelphia felt moving back to No. 12 overall with the Dolphins to acquire a 2022 first-round pick was a better option.
