NFC Rumors: Commanders, Eagles, Giants


  • Commanders DT Jonathan Allen to reporters after the loss: “I’m fucking tired of this shit. I’m fucking tired of this bullshit. It’s been seven fucking years of the same shit. I’m tired of this shit.” (Nicki Jhabvala)
  • Commanders LB Cody Barton was fined $16,391 for a hit on a quarterback.
  • Commanders RB Brian Robinson was fined $6,370 for unnecessary roughness.


  • According to Dianna Russini, Eagles GM Howie Roseman has been “working the phone” ahead of the trade deadline.
  • While there has been some speculation about RB Rashaad Penny being a potential trade candidate, Russini says Philadelphia appears to be staying put to maintain their running back depth for the postseason.
  • Russini does say that the Eagles are looking to make some defensive additions with safety being a specific area of need.
  • Eagles DE Josh Sweat was fined $16,391 for a hit on a quarterback.


  • Dianna Russini reports that the Giants aren’t planning to trade RB Saquon Barkley.
  • Barkley said earlier in the week that he wants to remain in New York: “Sitting here, everyone knows how I feel. Everyone knows I don’t want to get traded. I don’t think anyone in their right mind would want to get traded anywhere. It’s not an easy thing to do. You have to move. I have a family. I would love to be here. But like I said, it’s not in my control. My focus is to be the leader I can be for this team and get this thing on the right track.”
  • Barkley mentioned that he hyperextended his left elbow in the first quarter on Sunday. (Ryan Dunleavy)
