Kirk Cousins deal stalled after Redskins made identical offer

Kirk Cousins deal stalled after Redskins made identical offer

Norman is one of the top cornerbacks in the National Football League, but struggles mightily with large, big-bodied receivers like Jeffery.

That could mean quarterback Carson Wentz will be forced to look at other targets more than he wants. At this time previous year, Wentz was learning the playbook after being abruptly thrown into the fire after veteran quarterback Sam Bradford was traded to the Minnesota Vikings.

Washington hasn't won an opener under Gruden in his three seasons, and its last Week 1 win was in 2012. The Eagles situation is even more muddled, with former Patriot LeGarrette Blount, Wendell Smallwood and ageless Darren Sproles competing for snaps. Last season, 38 of his 53 catches came in the first half.

An Eagles' drive later, Wentz was sacked for the second time of the afternoon which forced a punt at their own 32-yard line with just over four minutes remaining.

The talk during OTAs and in training camp is that Agholor has emerged as a new and improved receiver in the Eagles offense. That's one of the main reasons the first string plays relatively little in the preseason, with the exception of game three.

"It doesn't take a lot of time to get him going". After missing nearly all of his rookie year with sore Achilles tendons, Docston was bothered by a sore hamstring during the preseason but was full go in practice this week, leading to questions why he was used so little in the opener. Redskins' linebacker Mason Foster recovered the ball at the 50-yard line.

Pryor finished with 1,007 receiving yards last season but his year wasn't as impressive as many think. WR Jamison Crowder set career highs with 67 receptions, 847 yards and seven TDs last season.

But he made several plays, too.

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said he is content with having running backs by committee and will utilize them based on the game plan against a particular opponent.

"Trent Williams is the best in the game", Graham said of Williams. I'm excited for that just like I'm sure the fan base is to see what he's got in the tank.

The Eagles are fortunate to be heading into this game with ideal health, while WR Jamison Crowder, C Spencer Long, and LB Ryan Anderson are all listed as questionable heading into this contest for Washington. He has the speed to keep up with any wide receiver, but, as was shown in the Eagles third preseason game against the Miami Dolphins, Darby can also get beat on the deep ball. Rookie Rasul Douglas and veterans Patrick Robinson and Dexter McDougle are also newcomers. "I just think we added some new pieces that bring us to a different level".

"A lot of the same principles and concepts that we ran or he ran back then still apply today", Pederson said.

Prior to the second offer being made, Cousins, his father and McCarthy had a four-hour long meeting with Washington brass that reportedly went very well.
