NFC East

Dallas Cowboys

#77 Tyron Smith, 5th year, OT

Since leaving USC for the NFL in 2011, Smith has gone to two Pro Bowls and should be in the mix for another selection in 2015 as the Cowboys starting left tackle.

George Farmer was cut after a trial at receiver and Keith Rivers retired after signing as a free agent earlier this year.

New York Giants

#59 Devon Kennard, 2nd year, LB

Kennard is in line to start for the Giants at strongside linebacker. He was named a secret superstar for the Giants by Pro Football Focus this offseason.

Philadelphia Eagles

#17 Nelson Agholor, 1st year, WR #3 Mark Sanchez, 7th year, QB

This year’s first round pick for the Eagles, Agholor has delivered on that high draft spot by earning a starting job to begin the season. Sanchez finds himself as the back up to Sam Bradford while Matt Barkley was traded to the Cardinals.

Kevin Graf missed the cut when the roster was trimmed to 75.

Washington Redskins

#32 Silas Redd, 2nd year, RB (Injured Reserve) #85 Anthony McCoy, 6th year, TE

Redd tore ligaments in his knee during the preseason and was waived by Washington due his season-ending injury. After going unclaimed, he re-signed with the Redskins and was put on injured reserve.

McCoy was added to the roster after being cut by the Seahawks.
