NFC Notes: Eagles, Giants, Redskins

     

Eagles

  • Jimmy Kempski of the Philly Voice notes Eagles fourth-round S K’Von Wallace compares favorably to former NFL S Glover Quin and could be used in a similar fashion by Philadelphia. 
  • Kempski writes Wallace can play a variety of positions in the Eagles secondary, including safety, nickel corner and dime linebacker, and should compete for a role immediately.
  • Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer notes the Eagles coaching staff plans to return to the team facility when the players do at the beginning of training camp. 
  • The Eagles hired Eddie Grayer as an assistant strength coach while letting go of assistant athletic trainers Micah Gerhart and Mark Lewis in order to cut down on overall staff size. (Tim McManus)

Giants

  • Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer notes the Giants have allowed coaches to return to the team facility on a voluntary basis. 

Redskins

  • Ben Volin of the Boston Globe thinks the Redskins will be more affected by the unique challenges of the 2020 season given they have a new coaching staff with HC Ron Rivera, OC Scott Turner and DC Jack Del Rio
  • ESPN’s John Keim highlights Redskins WR Steven Sims as a player who could have an impact in the slot if he can build on his 20 catches for 230 yards and four touchdowns in the final four games of 2019. 
  • Keim notes the Redskins signed CB Kendall Fuller to play slot corner, but would also like to use him at free safety. 
  • If second-year CB Jimmy Moreland can improve as a nickel corner, Keim says that would help Washington be able to move Fuller around. 
  • Keim writes the Redskins would like to use LB Reuben Foster at weakside linebacker if he can return to full strength. 
  • New Redskins RB J.D. McKissic could also carve out a role as a third-down back if 2019 fourth-round RB Bryce Love still isn’t healthy. 
  • Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer notes a few members of the Redskins coaching staff returned to the team facility last Friday. 
  • Breer mentioned former Panthers LB Luke Kuechly, who just accepted a job as a pro scout with Carolina, also easily could have had a job with the Redskins’ front office due to his connections there.
