NFC East Notes: Williams, Orton, Boone

The Cowboys worked out former Cardinals’ running back Ryan Williams, and are now in a position to sign the player, reports Calvin Watkins of (via Twitter). Watkins expects that signing to become official soon, after a roster move is made to clear room for Williams.

Here are some more notes from around the NFC East:

  • Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett expects backup quarterback Kyle Orton to be back with the team this coming season, reports Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram (via Twitter). The team anticipates his return after having conversations with Orton.
  • Former LSU receiver Kadron Boone was buried on the depth chart in college, behind first-round pick Odell Beckham Jr. and second-round pick Jarvis Landry. Even still, he has been impressive and he has a great chance to make the Eagles according to one AFC personnel man, writes Geoff Mosher of“He’s gonna make that team. He’s not a bad receiver; he’s a pretty good receiver,” the scout said. “He just got caught up in a place that has two pretty good receivers. He’s going to be fine.”
  • After Beckham, the Giants drafted a lot of players who have limited ceilings in terms of potential, writes Dan Graziano of He attributes this to the need for a group that needs a quick learning curve in order to make an immediate impact. The team was valuing on the short term over seeking long-term help.

    Clock’s tickin’ on Eli, so yeah… guys who can help right way vice longer term projects with higher ceiling makes sense. Once Eli’s done, who knows when they’ll have another franchise QB… and when you don’t have one, you languish in this league.
