Notes from around the NFC East: Mostly Cowboys stuff, including Mike Jenkins signing with the Raiders

Cowboys

• The Raiders signed Mike Jenkins. Fare thee well, my sweet non-tackling china doll. It is a 1-year deal, but the money figures aren’t known just yet. The free agent market for corners has been incredibly soft, so I don’t think it will be a significant amount of money. For the past year+, I’ve debated with countless Cowboys fans on the level of compensatory pick Jenkins would net the Cowboys if he were to leave via free agency. I’ve always maintained that a 4th corner with a history of injuries and soft play would not merit a large contract, resulting in a high comp pick. So from a nanny nanny boo boo perspective, I’m very interested to see what he got.

Regarding compensatory picks, here is where the Cowboys currently stand in terms of potentially recouping comp picks in 2014:

Cowboys comp picks

  • Justin Durant will likely cancel out one of the Cowboys’ losses, most likely Kevin Ogletree.
  • You can probably pencil in a 7 each for Victor Butler and John Phillips, pending other signings.
  • The Cowboys cut Dan Connor and Marcus Spears, so they will not receive a comp pick in return for either player.
  • The Cowboys signed Will Allen, who received the veteran minimum, which will likely not include him in the comp pick formula.
  • Depending on what Mike Jenkins received from the Raiders and what Kenyon Coleman received from the Saints, they could bring comp picks in return, although I doubt Coleman received anything higher than the veteran minimum, which would likely disqualify him from the formula.
  • Keep an eye on any more Cowboys signings to come, in the wake of Tony Romo’s new deal which freed up cap space. If the Cowboys sign a player for something higher than the minimum, they may wind up canceling out one of the above players who might otherwise net them a comp pick.

• Speaking of recouping comp picks for dead weight, the Bengals are reportedly giving Felix Jones a look.

• It was reported that the Cowboys were interested in former Texans and Chiefs OT Eric Winston. That report was then shot down by multiple Cowboys reporters. On that same topic, the Cowboys “may or may not be pursuing linemen,” according to reports. MySanAntonio.com be journalizin’, son.

The rest of the division is slow on news:

Eagles

I did a Q&A about the Eagles with the great Hogs Haven. My’s “A’s” were tremendous.

Giants

Redskins

Antoine Winfield visited with the Seahawks, throwing some serious doubt into the Redskins’ chances of signing him. Rich Tandler took a look at the Redskins’ chances of signing Winfield, with salary cap info and stuff.

    Hey Jimmy, I got a bad feeling tommorow’s post is going to be about the Giants and the play voted best play of all time. Ughhh that one is right up there with the flipper Anderson play

    1. Ha, nah, that contest was dumb, frankly. People are going to vote for the most recent plays, because really, how many of us were even around for plays like the Immaculate Reception?

    Good for Jenkins. Think he needs a fresh start. Think he can still be a very solid CB, if healthy. As long as the Raiders don’t try to play him in the slot…

  15. Jeff says:

    Still wish Dallas would’ve let Spencer walk. Look at the contracts for Paul Kruger and Erik Walden. If the Colts were willing to spend that much money on Walden and Gosder Cherilus, how much would they have thrown at Spencer?

    Dallas might have gotten a 3rd round comp. Bummer.

  16. AustonianAggie says:

    Cowboys are often so bad at late round picks that I never bother accounting for the compensation picks.

    1. Jeff says:

      Honestly, I think they have done a pretty good job with late round picks.

      In the past decade they’ve drafted Patrick Crayton, Jay Ratliff, Pat McQuistan, Jacque Reeves, Alan Ball, and Sean Lissemore with 7th round picks. Ratliff was an All-Pro DT and is perhaps still a decent starter (hard to tell with the injuries/age at this point). Crayton was a good #3 WR. Lissemore is a solid backup;

      McQuistan, Reeves, and Ball were/are stiffs. However, they stayed in the league for awhile and played for multiple teams. That’s better than your typical 7th round pick.

    Any change in opinion on the redksins resigning hall now that more contact info has been released being paid hardly any guaranteed $ and Half of the rest of the money is based on incentives one of them being making the probowl he could very well make less money this year than EJ biggers who has a contract of 1.5 mil I think it’s amazing how the skins kept hall and got biggers paying about the same as,possibly less than, what they paid for Cedric Griffin last year at 3 mil

    1. I was fine with them signing him back at reduced money. I just thought it was something they should have done last year.

      1. Chastle says:

        I agree with what you are saying about last year which should have been done he was not worth the money the skins paid for him this year, however i think he is actually worth more than them money the Skins are paring for him now and I give a lot of credit to Bruce Allan and Mike Shanahan for waiting it out and getting a good price for Hall.
