NFC East Notes: Eagles, Cowboys, Elliott

At the age of 36, Eagles punter Donnie Jones might look more like a coach than a player. But, don’t tell him he’s too old for the job,’s Dave Zingaro writes.

I sure don’t feel 36,” Jones said. “I know a lot of people see that [age] in the NFL and think, ‘He may only have one or two years left.’ Well, I say that’s a bunch of BS. Play as long as you want if you take care of yourself, keep being productive. And I’m going to continue to do it as long as I can.”

If Jones wants to play for several more seasons, there is precedent as there have been multiple punters over the years who played into their 40s. The question is, will the Eagles want to continue with him or move on to a different punter after this season? Jones is entering the final year of the four-year contract he signed with the Eagles before the 2013 season. He has a base salary of $1.75MM in 2016 before his scheduled entry into the free agent market.
