NFC Notes: Deshaun Watson, Eagles, Giants, Washington

Deshaun Watson

ESPN’s Adam Schefter said on 97.5 The Fanatic that he believes the Eagles are the team in the best position to make a trade for Texans QB Deshaun Watson

“The Eagles are more equipped to make a run at Deshaun Watson than any other team out there,” Schefter said, via 97.5 The Fanatic. “And if you put Deshaun Watson on the Philadelphia Eagles they become a Super Bowl contender right away.”

Schefter assumes Watson’s sexual assault situation will eventually be settled and the Eagles “will be waiting” once he’s able to play. 

“I’m operating under the assumption this will be settled. And when he is deemed able to play, the Philadelphia Eagles will be waiting.”

Schefter added the Texans will not sell Watson at a discount regardless of his ongoing legal battle

“The start of this offseason was DeShaun Watson telling the Texans he didn’t want to be there anymore. But the Texans won’t sell him at 25 percent. They’re going to wait to get full value.”


While making an appearance on The Ringer’s Flying Coach with Sean McVay and Peter Schrager, Giants HC Joe Judge called QB Daniel Jones a clear leader around the organization. 

One thing about this guy that I can’t say enough is how everyone responds to him … this guy is a leader. When he steps in the huddle, people respond to him … he’s a tough dude and he works relentlessly,” said Judge, via’s Zack Rosenblatt. 


Washington QB Ryan Fitzpatrick believes the team’s offense is going to be dangerous this year.

“The biggest thing with his offense, is we’re able to spread the ball around to everybody and get everybody involved. It’s going to be a tough offense to defend just because of all the pieces we have,” Fitzpatrick said, via NBC Sports Washington.

Fitzpatrick added he is happy with how the team came together in OTAs.

“I felt the rapport with the guys, not necessarily just on the field X’s and O’s, but just getting to know guys, starting those relationships up. It’s a good team and a lot of great guys, and usually when you can build that off-the-field chemistry, it continues to trickle over onto the field, as well,” Fitzpatrick said. “I really like where we’re at right now, with a lot of work to go, but I really like the guys we have on the roster.”
