East Notes: Bryant, Jackson, Bills

There’s a lot of talk about Cowboys rookies Randy Gregory and La’el Collins, but Rick Gosselin of The Dallas Morning News feels that fourth round linebacker Damien Wilson could be a real sleeper in this year’s class. With the health history of Sean Lee and Rolando McClain, he could get a chance to make an impact too. Here’s more from the East divisions..

  • Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News feels that Dez Bryant showed how much his Cowboys teammates and football mean to him when he showed up at Valley Ranch in the midst of his holdout. Of course, not everyone felt the same way and the wide receiver was criticized for many for what they perceived as a misstep in negotiating tactics. Bryant has averaged approximately 91 receptions, 1,312 receiving yards, and 14 touchdowns over the last three seasons and is looking for a contract that reflects that.
  • Speculation that the Bills could cut Fred Jackson has died down a bit, but the running back isn’t ready to take that for granted, as Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com writes. “We’ll see what happens with me getting cut or not,” the 34-year-old told WGR. “I’ll go out and do whatever I can to make sure that doesn’t happen. We’ve got to compete every year. This year is no different than any other year. I’ve got to go out and compete for my job.” The acquisition of LeSean McCoy has led some to believe that the veteran’s time is up in Buffalo, but Jackson doesn’t seem to think that his presence hurts his odds.
  • Recently, fans have asked John Keim of ESPN.com (on Twitter) if he believes Washington will add another tight end. He believes that the team will do so, though he’s not sure which player it’ll be or when that addition will happen.
