Earlier tonight we learned that the Coral Springs PD is no longer investigating Giants defensive end Pierre-Paul for the fireworks incident, having determined it didn’t happen within their jurisdiction. However, it’s still possible that another police department could look into the incident. Meanwhile, Giants officials have been in South Florida since Monday night but still have not been able to visit JPP. As we continue to monitor that story, here’s a look at the NFC East..
- Washington cornerback DeAngelo Hall says his rehab from a torn Achilles tendon is going well, but the 31-year-old stopped short of guaranteeing he’ll be full-go when training camp begins July 30th, as Tarik El-Bashir of CSNWashington.com writes. “I hope I’m ready to go the first day,” Hall said Tuesday on 106.7 the Fan. “When I say wean me back in, I know they are going to monitor me. I know they are not going to just throw me out there and [have me] take all the reps with the [first team]. I’m just going to get out there and see how the body feels.” This offseason, Hall agreed to a contract restructure that eliminated his 2015 salary guarantees. If Hall isn’t healthy when training camp rolls around, Washington could cut ties with him rather easily.
- Rainer Sabin of The Dallas Morning News ran down the players who are in contention to take the Cowboys‘ last defensive line spots and the players who are longshots. Defensive ends Jack Crawford, Ben Gardner, Ryan Russell, Ken Bishop and defensive tackles Davon Coleman and Chris Whaley are in the mix for those reserve spots. Meanwhile, Sabin views defensive ends Kenneth Boatright, Lavar Edwards, and Efe Obada as longshots.
- Cowboys defensive lineman Tyrone Crawford didn’t record his first sack until his 27th game and has only three to his credit since entering the league as a third-round draft pick in 2012. Still, thanks to his immense potential, there’s speculation that he could be in line for an extension as he enters the final year of his rookie deal, Sabin writes. For his part, Crawford would like to stay in Dallas. “This is definitely a place I like,” Crawford said. “I like the city. I like the program. I like everything this team’s doing – the ownership, coaches. It’s just great around here. I am just going to keep playing football.”
