Dallas Cowboys

NFL.com analyst Elliot Harrison says quarterback Tony Romo is one of the most underrated Cowboys of all time. Writes Elliot: "Critics hold Romo accountable as an individual, which is funny, because none of them want to hear his individual statistics. They don't want to hear that he owns the fifth-highest passer rating in NFL history at 95.6. Or that analytics haven Pro Football Focus rated him as the 11th-best quarterback in football last season, 10th in 2011 and eighth in 2010."

The NFL is reviewing defensive tackle Josh Brent’s status with the Cowboys and should have a decision whether to suspended him before the team heads to training camp July 19, writes Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Brent is still on the roster while awaiting his September trial on an intoxication manslaughter charge in the death of teammate Jerry Brown, who was a passenger in Brent’s car when it crashed Dec. 8 in Irving.

The team's website continues its series analyzing each position group with a look at the cornerbacks by David Helman.

New York Giants

ESPNNewYork.com's Ohm Youngmisuk talks with coordinator Kevin Gilbride about how the offense looked during offseason OTAs.

Giants.com writers debate if the team will keep both kickers, Josh Brown and David Buehler, on the final roster.

Philadelphia Eagles

Chip Kelly is in no hurry to name a starting quarterback, writes Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer. The new coach has elected to exercise patience, withholding judgment until it's necessary -- or obvious -- to make a decision between Michael Vick and Nick Foles, and potentially even Matt Barkley.

The Eagles were among 22 teams on hand to watch a workout in New Jersey by offensive tackle Michael Bamiro, a 6-foot-8, 335-pound preseason All-American from Stony Brook. Bamiro had eligibility issues and is now a free agent.

Washington Redskins

Rich Tandler of csnwashington.com breaks down who will get the extra carries, assuming quarterback Robert Griffin III carries the ball less this season.

In his position-by-position look at the Redskins’ roster, John Keim of the Washington Post says Alfred Morris' rookie season was no fluke.

Outside linebacker Brian Orakpo, recovered from surgery to repair his torn pectoral muscle, says he is "300" percent, adding "I'm going to rip it up this year." Brian Tinsman of the team's website has the story.
