Around the NFC East: Does Kirk Cousins want to be in Washington?

NFC East news and updates for 7/3/17

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Redskins Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Let’s check in on the latest rumblings around the division

Hogs Haven - Washington Redskins

Does Kirk Cousins Really Want to be a Redskin?

Things have been very quiet from the Cousins camp. We heard rumors that Kirk went to owner Daniel Snyder and requested a trade in the winter, but those rumors were refuted by Cousins himself. We also heard that a conversation took place between Kirk and ownership, and that Kirk walked away feeling that he was wanted long-term by the organization. Still, we have never heard Kirk come out and say that he WANTS to stay in Washington. I have never heard him publicly profess his love for the organization or the city.

90-Man Roster Preview: Can Paul Perkins Carry The Load?

We know Perkins will open the season as the Giants’ No. 1 back. Head coach Ben McAdoo has already said as much.

“What he’s shown is that in our system, you need three phases. You have to be able to run the ball. He was an effective runner last year. You have to be able to catch the ball. He did a good job in that and you have to be able to block people because they’re going to try you out. I thought that he probably improved the most in that situation,” Johnson said. “Guys were testing him out to get to the quarterback and he held up very good in protection. He is continuing to do that. If you could do that, it allows you to be a possible back on all three downs.”

A partial list of those in attendance, according to Trotter: Von Miller, Khalil Mack, Vic Beasley, Olivier Vernon, Malik Jackson, Cliff Avril, Dee Ford, Shane Ray, Solomon Thomas, Arik Armstead.

If you look closely at the picture of the assembled pass rushers, you'll notice that Damontre Moore was also a participant, proudly sporting a Cowboys T-shirt.
