NFC Notes: Eagles, Giants, Redskins

     

Eagles

  • Paul Domowitch of The Philadelphia Inquirer says that unless the team re-signs LB Nigel Bradham, who could return to the team on a one-year deal, LB Nathan Gerry will likely take over the defensive playcalling duties.
  • Domowitch adds that Bradham never completely recovered from torn toe ligaments he suffered in the 2018 playoffs before tearing his shoulder labrum in Week 1 Bradham also missed four games with an ankle injury that limited him during the season.

Giants

  • NJ.com’s Matt Lombardo writes the Giants will be relying on free-agent addition LB Kyler Fackrell to recapture the form he had in 2018 when he recorded double-digit sacks. 
  • They won a similar bet when they signed LB Markus Golden to a prove-it deal last offseason and he responded with 10 sacks in 2019. Lombardo adds there’s a good chance Golden is back in New York this season. 
  • Behind those two, Lombardo notes the Giants will be relying on LBs Lorenzo Carter and Oshane Ximines to develop into contributors. 
  • Lombardo says LB David Mayo will compete with 2019 fifth-round LB Ryan Connelly for the second starting linebacker spot next to free-agent signing LB Blake Martinez
  • Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer points out Giants GM Dave Gettleman is nearly 70 and there’s a chance he retires at some point in the future even if he’s not fired. 

Redskins

  • Redskins HC Ron Rivera says the competition for playing time at left tackle, left guard and tight end are wide open. (JP Finlay)
  • He adds the staff is trying to “find a home” for Redskins LB Ryan Anderson
  • While he didn’t rule out adding a veteran receiver, Rivera said the team wanted to take a look at the young receivers on the roster before adding a player that would curtail their development. He was asked specifically about Antonio Brown. (Finlay)
  • Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins says he’s down to 218 pounds after being drafted at 235 and starting his offseason at 227. (Rhiannon Walker)
  • Over The Cap’s Nick Korte lists Redskins WR Terry McLaurin and Holcomb as players who are helped by the new CBA’s PPE rules and are on track to get raises in their fourth season.
