NFC Notes: Eagles, Giants, Washington

     

Eagles

  • NJ.com’s Mike Kaye writes Eagles RB Corey Clement should make the final roster as long as he shows he’s healthy, as he’s proven he’s a reliable contributor on special teams and as a receiver. 
  • Philadelphia’s current options for a power back on the roster include 2019 UDFA RB Elijah Holyfield and an UDFA from this year’s class, RB Michael Warren
  • Kaye adds Philadelphia has shown interest in adding a veteran running back on a minimum salary-type deal. 
  • Jimmy Kempski of the Philly Voice thinks Eagles DT Fletcher Cox will return to his dominant ways now that he’s got a full offseason of recovery from a foot injury that held him back in 2019. 
  • Kempski notes Eagles DT Javon Hargrave was the team’s 1B target in free agency, and once Miami offered more money to their top target, CB Byron Jones, than they were comfortable with, they pivoted to Hargrave. 
  • Kempski thinks Eagle DT Hassan Ridgeway has the inside track to the final roster spot as the fourth tackle, but will need to fend off UDFA DT Raequan Williams, Anthony Rush, Bruce Hector and Albert Huggins

Giants

  • ESPN ranked the Giants No. 29 in their power rankings for the next three years, with major improvements still needed on defense despite some promise on the offensive side of the ball. 
  • 2020 is a major year for Giants GM Dave Gettleman, who needs to see results from controversial moves like drafting RB Saquon Barkley and QB Daniel Jones in the top ten, rebuilding the offensive line and trading for DL Leonard Williams
  • Cornerback is likely to be a future need regardless of how 2019 first-round CB Deandre Baker‘s legal situation plays out. 
  • The Giants lead the NFL in dead money for the past three seasons, according to Jason Fitzgerald of Over The Cap, with a total of $109.6 million. 

Washington

  • The Athletic’s Rhiannon Walker writes that Washington’s special teams trio of K Dustin Hopkins, P Tress Way and LS Nick Sundberg are among the best in the NFL and one of the stronger units on the team. 
  • Walker says Hopkins is entering the final year of his deal, but if he continues to be reliable he will likely be re-signed by the team. 
  • Chad Ryan says a user on Reddit has apparently discovered the same company that manages Washington’s official team website has registered the domain DCSentinels.com, possibly hinting at a new name.
  • However, ESPN’s John Keim says the new name won’t be the Sentinels, though he doesn’t know what it will be.
