- ESPN’s Tim McManus says the Eagles are confident LB T.J. Edwards can step into a starting role in 2020 after making the team as an undrafted free agent last year and starting four games to close the year.
- Despite signing CB Nickell Robey-Coleman to just a one-year, $1.35 million deal, the Eagles view him as a top-five slot corner, per McManus.
- Philadelphia also believes major 2019 additions DT Malik Jackson and WR DeSean Jackson can have the impact the Eagles thought they would have last year before getting hurt.
The New York Giants announced some front office changes on Thursday including:
- Dr. Lani Lawrence: director of wellness and clinical services
- Ed Triggs: promoted to director of football operations
- Ty Siam: director of football data & innovation
- Courtney Kennedy: football data analyst
- Marquis Pendleton: promoted to area scout
- Blaise Bell: BLESTO scout
- Hannah Burnett: Midlands scout
- Craig Fitzgerald: director of strength and performance
- Sam Coad: performance manager/assistant strength coach
- Nick Williams: offensive assistant
Kendall Fuller, who Washington traded to the Chiefs in 2018, said a front office member told him they’d attempt to re-sign him if he hit free agency this offseason.
“The day I left, one of the guys in the front office said to me, ‘When you hit free agency, we’re bringing you back,'” Fuller said, via Ethan Cadeaux of NBC Sports.
Fuller said he had reason to not believe Washington’s front office member after being traded to Kansas City.
“At the time, I’m sitting there like, ‘Man, y’all just traded me. I ain’t tryna hear none of that,'” Fuller said. “It’s crazy to think about that now, because the day I left the facility, they said we’re bringing you back in free agency.”
Fuller believes he has grown from a mental standpoint after winning Super Bowl 54 with the Chiefs.
“I think I’ve grown a lot,” Fuller said. “Even just from a standpoint mentally. Getting more reps, getting more experience, getting to play in big games in the playoffs and the Super Bowl.”
- Per the Washington Post, officials say that unless team owner Daniel Snyder changes the team name, Washington won’t be able to build a new stadium at the RFK site.
