NFC Notes: Eagles, Giants, Washington



John Clayton recently spoke about the possibility of free agent Jadeveon Clowney signing with the Eagles after training camp.

“He’s going to be interested in Philadelphia because one of the things and one of the reasons he turned down Cleveland is because he wants to go to a winning team,” Clayton explained to Matt Mullin of “He turned down Miami twice because he didn’t expect them to be a winning team. I think if its a low price they might do it, but right now probably no.”

Clayton mentioned that Clowney might accept a deal in the $9-10 million range with the thought that he will get his money on the free-agent market next season. Clayton also added that if Clowney was to sign with a team like the Eagles and then left in free agency, the team would likely receive a third-round compensatory pick, something GM Howie Roseman could be interested in.


  • Jason Fitzgerald of OverTheCap thinks that while Giants DE Leonard Williams should earn in the $13 million a year range, his talent and draft status may have him looking for somewhere in the $17 million to $20 million range.
  • Fitzgerald also believes that the disparity between the two sides is so large that he doesn’t see either side wanting to come to terms on a long term deal.


  • Joel Corry of CBS Sports believes keeping RG Brandon Scherff in Washington for many years will likely require a long-term contract averaging more than $16 million per year.
  • Scherff is owed $15.03 million fully guaranteed under the franchise tag in 2020 and a second tag next year would cost Washington $18.036 million.
  • NBC Sports’ JP Finlay writes Washington won’t consider trading for Browns TE David Njoku if it costs a first-round pick. But if the price drops to a Day 3 pick, Finlay thinks the team will consider it.
