NFC Notes: Eagles, Giants, Redskins


  • Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice set the over/under for 2021 compensatory picks for the Eagles at two. This would be a sixth-round pick for the loss of RB Jordan Howard to the Dolphins and possibly a sixth- or seventh-round choice for DT Timmy Jernigan.
  • Jernigan’s situation is interesting, considering that he agreed to a contract with the Texans back in April, but the deal has yet to be officially announced by Houston.
  • If Jernigan doesn’t sign with the Texans or isn’t counted in the compensatory pick formula, it’s possible the Eagles could still get a seventh-round pick for losing CB Ronald Darby to the Redskins. 
  • Eagles CB Rasul Douglas‘ restructured contract could make him a more attractive trade asset, per Kempski.


  • The Athletic’s Dan Duggan writes Giants LB Markus Golden‘s market has continued to be quiet and he might not find a better offer than the $4.1 million unrestricted free agent tender. 
  • Duggan says the Giants likely view DT B.J. Hill as a rotational depth player. While he had 5.5 sacks as a rookie, three were in one game and he had just one sack in 2019. 
  • Duggan mentions Elijhaa Penny as the favorite to win the fullback job with competition from George Aston. Giants seventh-round LB Tae Crowder converted from running back in college but Duggan thinks he has to make the roster before worrying about playing both sides of the ball. 


Redskins DC Jack Del Rio believes first-round DE Chase Young will be a “really good player” but still must observe him during practice. 

I think the sky’s the limit for him in terms of what he will be able to bring us,” Del Rio said, via Les Carpenter of the Washington Post“We haven’t seen him yet [on the field], but I’ve watched enough tape,” Del Rio said. “He’s going to be a really good player for us.”

Del Rio said Young has the potential to be an “impactful” player when asked to compare the prospect to Del Rio’s formerly coached edge rushers like Julius Peppers, Von Miller, and Khalil Mack.

I do believe he can be impactful for us,” Del Rio said.
