Asomugha Will Reportedly Be Cut Without Pay Cut, and More NFC East News

Brad Gagnon@Brad_Gagnon NFL National ColumnistFebruary 22, 2013

The fate of Philadelphia Eagles cornerbacks Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has been debated heavily early this offseason. And while we'll likely have to wait until mid-March to get word on DRC, Asomugha's situation appears to be coming to a head right now.

His representatives will meet with the Eagles today at the NFL combine in Indianapolis, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter (via Pro Football Talk), and he'll be released if he doesn't take a pay cut. 

The disappointing veteran cornerback is slated to make $15 million in 2013, only $4 million of which is guaranteed. This is purely speculative, but I'm guessing they'll look for him to cut his salary in half before considering bringing him back for a third season in green. 

 

On to what else is being talked about in the NFC East...

Dallas Cowboys

From Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram: Better health will be key for the Cowboys going forward.

Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News argues that the 1989 draft class (Troy Aikman, Moose Johnston) was the best in the Jerry Jones era.

 

New York Giants

From Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger: John Mara doesn't know where the rumor started that suggested the team prioritized Hakeem Nicks over Victor Cruz.

From Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News: Chris Snee underwent hip surgery.

 

Philadelphia Eagles

From Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer: The Eagles are strongly supporting Nick Foles.

From Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Daily News: The Eagles should strongly consider drafting Alabama guard Chance Warmack with the No. 4 overall pick.

 

Washington Redskins

Rich Campbell of the Washington Times writes about the lack of love for right tackles in the football world. 

From Mike Jones of the Washington Post: The 'Skins don't need a first-round pick to fill their needs.
