NFC East Notes: Eagles, Jordan, Redskins

Earlier this morning, we heard that free agent signal-caller Josh Freeman will work out for the Giants this week. There are a few more NFC East items to round up though, so let’s dive right in….

And according to at least one report, from Bob Grotz of the Delaware County Daily Times, Philadelphia did make an offer for Jordan — according to Grotz, the Eagles’ offer is believed to have included a second-round pick and edge defender Brandon Graham.

For what it’s worth, the Dolphins denied shopping Jordan when rumors first started to swirl, but I’d imagine the team would have to strongly consider any offer that includes a first-rounder.
