NFC Notes: Cowboys, Eagles, Washington


  • Josh Tolentino of the Philadelphia Inquirer says a high-level league source believes Eagles GM Howie Roseman‘s thinking regarding a potential trade for Texans QB Deshaun Watson remains unchanged. The Inquirer reported in March Roseman would be willing to make a strong run at Watson. 
  • According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapaport, the Eagles signed CB Steven Nelson to a one-year deal worth up to $4.125 million, with a $2.5 million base.
  • NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo reports second-round OL Landon Dickerson will get reps at both guard and center in camp.


Washington QB Ryan Fitzpatrick loves where he and the team are at entering the season.

“This is the best situation I’ve ever been in or the best situation that I’ve ever gone into as the guy,” Fitzpatrick said on the ESPN Daily podcast, via “I signed to be the starter in Houston, I signed to be the starter in Miami, so this is now the third team that I’ve signed to come in and be the starter for. I just feel like the way that I’m playing the last four years, kind of the progression of my career, it doesn’t really make a whole lot of sense that 17 years in, physically, I feel great, mentally, emotionally, I’m in the right spot. I just think I am set up for success this year and really looking forward to it.”

Fitzpatrick has focused on embracing what time he does have left in his career, while focusing on his love for the game.

The other major point in my career when there was a transition was after my year in 2016 with the Jets, which was miserable and the first time in my life I hated football and just didn’t want to play anymore,” Fitzpatrick said. “Since then, it’s almost like I’ve been playing on borrowed time. The last four, I’ve really been able to enjoy. Hopefully everybody has been able to see that for me on the field, from some of the goofy stuff and the interviews. My personality has really come out the last four.
