New York Giants
- Center Phil Costa was re-signed by Dallas to a two-year deal worth $2.7 million.
- Brandon Carr said that the Dallas corners have been told to prepare for a more physical style of defense. It looks like Monte Kiffin is planning on being more aggressive running the 4-3 in Dallas.
- Linebacker Dan Connor and the Cowboys are working on restructuring his contract, according to the Dallas Morning News.
- Linebacker Anthony Spencer was hit with the franchise tag, but there has been some talk that the Cowboys are allegedly open to trading him. However, ESPN’s Ed Werder says otherwise.
- Safety Kenny Phillips is reportedly set to become an unrestricted free agent after turning down an offer from the Giants.
- Josina Anderson of ESPN reported yesterday that the Giants have discussed signing veteran Charles Woodson.
- Much to the relief of Giants fans everywhere, cornerback Corey Webster agreed to take a massive pay cut. His base salary went from $7 million to $1.25 million, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News.
- Center David Baas restructured his contract, moving his base salary from $4.25 million to $1.25 million.
- The Giants hope to re-sign guard Kevin Boothe and tight end Martellus Bennett before they reach the open market.
- The Giants tendered Adrian Tracy, Jim Cordle and Justin Trattou.
- There have been a number of conflicting reports regarding Nnamdi Asomugha. Howard Eskin of FOX 29 reported that the Eagles were going to release Asomugha on Wednesday, but he managed to avoid the chopping block. Regardless, it seems that it’s just a matter of when, and not if, he gets cut.
- The San Francisco 49ers are expected to let safety Dashon Goldson walk, which opens the door up for a cash heavy Eagles team to sign him. NJ.com’s Jordan Raanan reported earlier today that the Eagles are interested in Dashon Goldson, which makes sense on several levels.
- Right tackle Todd Herremans is “a few weeks from getting a clean bill of health from the medical staff”. He’s expected to be ready for minicamps and OTAs.
- London Fletcher underwent ankle surgery earlier this week and is planning on coming back for a 16th season. He may be 38, but he’s been a staple at linebacker for the Redskins over the last six season.
- The Redskins have reportedly told tight end Fred Davis that they intend to re-sign him.
- Washington signed former Chargers GM AJ Smith as a senior executive with the team.
- It appears that DeAngelo Hall is on the verge of either being cut or taking a massive pay cut. John Keim of the Washington Examiner reported that Hall could potentially get a take it or leave it offer, which he would be wise to accept.
