NFC Notes: Eagles, Giants, Vikings



  • While Eagles S Rodney McLeod‘s recent production may not be in line with his salary, Jimmy Kempski of Philly Voice explains that he won’t be going anywhere this offseason.
  • If the Eagles were to release him, they would take on $9,218,750 in dead money and trading him to another team would cost Philadelphia $7,218,750 in dead money and free up just $1,187,500.
  • According to Kempski, a down year in 2018 could very well lead to McLeod being released in 2019, which would bring the cap savings to $5,093,750 to go along with $4,812,500 of dead money.
  • Kempski can see the Eagles drafting a running back this year, but says it’s unlikely they’ll add one in free agency.


Giants co-owner John Mara was asked about his reaction to the Odell Beckham video that surfaced in recent weeks and how it affects a potential long-term extension.

“I guess my response to that is I’m tired of answering questions about Odell’s behavior,” Mara said, per Paul Schwartz. “He knows what’s expected of him and now it’s up to him.”

  • Mara added Beckham Jr. “knows what’s expected of him” in order to receive a long-term extension and contracts get done when they’re supposed to get done.” (Paul Schwartz)
  • Mara said they’re not shopping Beckham, but they would listen to calls on any player. (Dan Duggan)
