There's been a lot of talk about the end of the Andy Reid era and/or the Michael Vick era in Philadelphia, but what about the Nnamdi Asomugha era? 

ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio reports that $11 million of Asomugha's $15 million base salary for 2013 isn't guaranteed, which means the Eagles can wash their hands of the talented but somewhat disappointing veteran cornerback for $4 million.

Asomugha was a free-agent prize less than two years ago, but if Howie Roseman and the next head coach look to trim fat, they could part with yet another man who represents Reid's failures in a fairly big way.


On to what else is being talked about in the the league's most popular division...

Dallas Cowboys

From Charean Williams and Carlos Mendez of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram: The Cowboys are not counting on getting DeMarco Murray back this week.

From Rainer Sabin of the Dallas Morning News: Kenyon Coleman has become the Cowboys' third defensive starter to suffer a season-ending injury. Man, I had completely forgotten about Barry Church...


New York Giants

Surprise, surprise. Ahmad Bradshaw is undergoing "a battery of tests" during the Giants' bye week, according to's Ohm Youngmisuk.

Youngmisuk also reports that Eli "Tired Arm" Manning won't throw the football until next Monday


Philadelphia Eagles

From Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer: Nick Foles is likely to start against Washington as Michael Vick deals with a "pretty significant" concussion.

From CSN Washington's Geoff Mosher: The Eagles have signed veteran guard Jake Scott to shore up the offensive line.


Washington Redskins

Pierre Garcon is back practicing with the Redskins, according to Rich Campbell of the Washington Times.

And Tarik El-Bashir of CSN Washington reports that Jammal Brown is back, too. Too little, too late for the 'Skins?
