NFL Notes: Cowboys, Eagles, Jaguars, & Saints



  • According to Gil Brandt of, the Eagles turned down a chance to trade first-round picks with the Broncos because they really wanted to come away with USC WR Nelson Agholor.


  • Michael DiRocco of ESPN hears that the Jaguars like QB Stephen Morrissignificantly” more than QB Jake Waters, making him the most likely No. 3 quarterback on the depth chart.
  • Waters is believed to be a camp arm with a slight chance on making the practice squad.
  • DiRocco considers CB Nick Marshall to be the most likely undrafted free agent to make the Jaguars active roster.
  • Of other undrafted free agents, DiRocco mentions RB Corey Grant as someone to keep an eye on.
  • DiRocco also expects linebackers Thurston Armbrister, Matt Robinson and Todd Thomas to compete for one roster spot.
  • DiRocco liked what he saw from second-round rookie RB T.J. Yeldon, and first-round pick DE Dante Fowler Jr. prior to his ACL injury.
  • Jaguars DB coach Dewayne Walker said that SS Johnathan Cyprien must take the “next step” in his progression in 2015. With this in mind, DiRocco could see Jacksonville looking for a new strong safety for 2016 if Cyprien does not improve.
  • DiRocco expects the Jaguars’ first six draft picks to make the active roster, while seventh-round rookies WR Neal Sterling and TE Ben Koyack remain unknown commodities.
  • Fifth-round rookie WR Rashad Greene will compete for punt return duties with WR Ace Sanders and WR Tandon Doss.
  • HC Gus Bradley said he has been “really impressed” with that Sanders’ consistency through the offseason program.


  • Saints HC Sean Payton has been speaking highly on TE Josh Hill this offseason, and says the team is unlikely to pursue any veteran tight end options. (Around The NFL)
  • Payton said first-round pick OT Andrus Peat has split time at both tackle spots during the last two days of practice, though he envisions Peat as a right tackle. (Larry Holder)
