NC Players on NFC East Rosters


Part 5 take us to the NFC East, home of the Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, New York Giants, and Washington ‘we don’t have a trademark’ Redskins. This division was supposed to produce major contenders last year only to see the Giants, Cowboys, and Redskins all flop in one way or another. That allowed for the rise of Chip Kelly and the Eagles who ‘don’t believe in destiny.’

DALLAS COWBOYS

Bruce Carter –LB –North Carolina
Dwayne Harris –WR –East Carolina
Kyle Wilber –DE –Wake Forest

Harris is a weapon in the return game as well at receiver. We’re still waiting for Carter to emerge as an NFL starting linebacker.

NEW YORK GIANTS
Markus Kuhn –DT –NC State
Terrell Manning –LB –NC State

A pair of Wolfpack defenders here. The Giants used to have more, but Andre Brown, Lindval Joseph, and Hakeem Nicks left in free agency. Manning was well considered when he was in school.

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES

Earl Wolff –S –NC State

The Eagles have only the aptly named Earl Wolff to show. This does not surprise me as Chip Kelly’s roster is designed to look for players he knows can fit his system. This means a fair number of Oregon guys and other West Coast guys that Kelly was familiar with in his time as head coach at the University of Oregon. I assume that he will branch out soon.

WASHINGTON REDSKINS

David Amerson –CB –NC State
Jeremy Kimbrough –LB –Appalachian State

Amerson was highly considered during his collegiate playing days. By and large I have been underwhelmed by the amount of our guys on the rosters of the NFC East. If they want to stop being disappointing, perhaps they should take the time to acquire more North Carolina based talent. We’ll keep searching to see which division truly understands that Old North Staters bring championships.
