NFL Notes: Broncos, Eagles, Giants

     

Broncos

Broncos OL coach Mike Munchak initially interviewed for the head coach position. But after the Broncos went a different direction, he still decided to join the team as a position coach. 

“Yeah, that was different,” Munchak said via Ryan O’Halloran of the Denver Post. “You’re going from one thing to a totally other thing — head coach [candidate] to position coach again, which I was doing. Being here for the visit helped me understand. You see the facility, see what they’re trying to do, see the culture, how positive it was, what a great situation it would be.” 

Eagles

Regarding Eagles QB Carson Wentz‘s four-year, $ million contract extension, HC Doug Pederson said “it feels great” to get his deal done and thinks it will give them stability on offense. 

It feels great,” Pederson said, via Dave Spadaro. “In this league, a lot of things revolve around your quarterback and for us to have been blessed to have. . . .Obviously, [we] moved up the draft board to get Carson at the No. 2 spot a couple of years ago and now to extend him gives us stability on offense, gives our organization stability. I’m excited about that and obviously the chance to continue to work with him.”

Pederson said Wentz appears to be recovered from his back injury from last season and is “throwing the ball aggressively.”

He’s looked really good,” Pederson said. “He’s strong. He’s healthy. He’s been throwing the ball aggressively. You know we’re still monitoring his progress. We just want to make sure he’s healthy for training camp. But he’s done a good job this spring.”

Giants

Giants’ first-round QB Daniel Jones feels he has “improved” and is “learning a lot” in minicamp. 

“Yeah, I think I improved. Every day I think that’s the goal,” said Jones, via Pat Leonard. “Did some things better. Did some things not as good. I think the challenge for me is to be consistent. I’m learning a lot, trying to learn as fast as I can. But yeah, it was a good week.”

Jones mentioned that he is “thinking quicker” and “processing information” faster since the start of the offseason program. 

[I’m] thinking quicker, processing information and just being able to play,” said Jones, via Matt Lombardo. “I think that’s the biggest challenge for young QBs. It’s about making the right decision as quick as you can.
