Here's the latest offseason news from around the NFC East:

Dallas Cowboys

Another offseason, and another decision in Dallas about who will be calling plays.

According to reports, former Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Scott Linehan may be joining the Cowboys to assume play-calling duties from Bill Callahan.

Linehan interviewed for a position on the Cowboys' staff on Monday. And should he be hired as offensive coordinator, reports indicate Callahan could head up to the Cleveland Browns to be the team's new offensive coordinator under first-year coach Mike Pettine.

Philadelphia Eagles

For a hot minute, many considered Nick Foles a legitimate MVP candidate. Well, Philly fans got what they wanted.

Foles won MVP ... of the Pro Bowl on Sunday. He went 7-for-10 for 89 yards, a touchdown and a 130.8 QB rating.

In other news, the Eagles made an addition to their coaching staff. Replacing Bill Lazor is former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Bill Musgraves. Lazor was hired as the Miami Dolphins' new offensive coordinator, so Mugraves will replace him as quarterbacks coach.

Washington Redskins

For a second, it seemed as if former Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan had a new gig. Shanahan was a finalist for the Baltimore Ravens' offensive coordinator vacancy before the team opted to hire former Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak on Monday.

However, Shanahan may still find a home in Baltimore. According to CBS Sports, Shanahan could become a member of team's staff in a different capacity.
