Let’s take a look at the latest from the NFC…
- Speaking to Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910, suspended Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington said he’s completed anger management and domestic violence classes, and has passed every drug test (link via Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic). Washington was suspended last May for at least one year, and also was involved in a assault incident, for which he received probation. Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said last month that he doesn’t even consider the 28-year-old Washington a part of the team.
- Eagles head coach Chip Kelly has let DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin go in consecutive offseasons, and part of the reason for their departure may be that Kelly finds “hidden value” in receivers, as Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer writes. Route-running (even on plays where the player is not the primary receiver) and blocking are among the attributes that Kelly looks for, and he believes that Riley Cooper and Jordan Matthews are more than capable in those areas.
- Veteran defender Anthony Spencer probably won’t return to the Cowboys, opines Todd Archer of ESPN.com. After adding Greg Hardy last week, Dallas appears set at defensive end, so there’s not an obvious need for Spencer on the roster.
- Washington‘s offseason additions have been praised this year, writes John Keim of ESPN.com, and that wasn’t the case a year ago. Keim takes a look back at the club’s signings from 2014, most of which didn’t pan out.
