Here's how the Eagles can claim the NFC East title with 7 wins

  Here's how the Eagles can claim the NFC East title with 7 wins The Eagles have by far the toughest remaining schedule among their NFC East counterparts, so winning the division won't be easy.Still, the Eagles are just one half-game behind Dallas (2-3) with 11 games left. The Cowboys, meanwhile, just lost star quarterback Dak Prescott for the season after he suffered a compound fracture and dislocation of his ankle.

Everson Griffen 's first season with the Cowboys isn't going according to how anyone had likely planned. With Dallas sitting at 2-5 and no clear signs of improvement ahead, the Cowboys have made it known Griffen is available via trade, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday, per

The Dallas Cowboys are signing former Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen , NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network's Tom Pelissero and Jane Slater reported Wednesday Around the NFL. Cowboys signing former Vikings DE Everson Griffen . Published: Aug 12, 2020 at 09:02 PM.

The Cowboys are still only a half-game back in the race for the NFC East and could move into sole possession of first place with a win this weekend, but might they be packing it in already? Dallas has “made it known” that veteran defensive end Everson Griffen is available for trade, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network tweets.

Rapoport’s tweet makes it sound as if the Cowboys are looking to unload the roughly half of his $6 million salary left on the books to a contending team. It’s perhaps the biggest sign yet of just how disastrous things have gotten for the Cowboys in such a short amount of time. Just a few weeks ago, the notion of the Cowboys being sellers at the trade deadline would’ve been unfathomable.

  'Andy's been Andy': How Dallas Cowboys will forge ahead this NFL season without franchise QB Dak Prescott Playing without Dak Prescott for the first time since drafting the QB in 2016, the Cowboys hand the reins to Andy Dalton on Monday.Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott was back at the Star for medical treatment early Thursday morning, just a few days after surgery for a compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle. Teammates and coaches were thrilled to catch a smile on the face of the player whom they’d last seen carted off the field of AT&T Stadium, his ankle in a sterile splint,  tears streaming down his face.

Everson Griffen is just the latest smart free agent signing for Cowboys . This is different than in the past. For years, the approach of the Cowboys to free agency was to do a little bargain shopping and get very little value in return. This is a radically different group of signings, and you might want to

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports the Dallas Cowboys will sign defensive end Everson Griffen to a one-year contract.

For a team that entered the year with Super Bowl aspirations, it’s a pretty dramatic admission of defeat. Obviously the impact of Dak Prescott’s injury can’t be overstated, but the defense has been a complete mess, and the coaching staff led by Mike McCarthy appears on the verge of losing the locker room.

Griffen, 33 in December, signed with the Cowboys in August looking to compete for a title. He’s been playing a little more than half of the defensive snaps this season, racking up 20 tackles and 2.5 sacks through seven games. Griffen has made the Pro Bowl in four of the past five seasons, including last year when he had eight sacks with Minnesota, so a number of contenders could be interested despite his relatively advanced age.

There are a handful of suitors that make sense, as teams such as the Seahawks and Cardinals look in line for playoff spots but don’t have much of a pass rush. We heard the Cardinals were interested in him as a free agent earlier this offseason and they’re now without star pass-rusher Chandler Jones for the rest of the year, so they could make a lot of sense. The Packers were another team engaged in discussions with the USC product as recently as late July.

All of this being said, the report is apparently news to Griffen himself. Griffen said “I don’t think the Cowboys want to trade me. I haven’t heard that,” when asked by Josina Anderson of ESPN (Twitter link). Meanwhile a source told Anderson that teams have called, but the Cowboys haven’t “shopped him officially.” If Griffen is shipped out, it would mean more snaps for Randy Gregory, who played only six defensive snaps this past weekend in his first action since 2018.

His one-year, $2M deal has proven to be a tremendous value, and the Cowboys will be happy to double that amount if Smith achieves the necessary sack incentives. If anything, it sounds like the Cowboys will be looking to extend their deal with the former All-Pro.
