NFC Notes: Bears, Eagles, Saints, Vikings

Bears

Bears QB Mike Glennon explained that he’s trying to not focus on anything other than being in the moment this year.

The Bears signed Glennon to a three-year contract at the start of free agency only to trade up a spot to get Mitch Trubisky in round one, which leaves Glennon’s future with the team somewhat in question beyond this season.

“I’m sure my mind will wander; that’s just being a human,” Glennon said, via the Chicago Sun-Times. “But whenever I feel that, I’m going to try to bring myself back down to the present. 

“The biggest thing is just staying in the moment. When you worry about the future, it creates unnecessary stress. And a lot of those thoughts will be negative rather than positive.”

Eagles

Saints

Saints HC Sean Payton explained that they want to see how first-round pick Ryan Ramczyk and Khalif Barnes look at left tackle before possibly moving Andrus Peat.

The key for us during this time in which Terron is out is finding those answers,” Payton said, via Nola.com. “How’s Ryan look? (He’s) a young player. We were fortunate to have Khalif back in real good shape, and we’re deeper at that position than in probably any of the years we’ve been here.

“When you’re able to take a tackle in the first round, in the end of the first round, like a guy like Ramczyk. That’s a huge pick, so I’m anxious to see how he does (and) how the veteran (Barnes) does before moving Andrus there in a rotation. I like the work he’s had at left guard, but we have some flexibility.”

Vikings

Vikings rookie RB Dalvin Cook made it clear he isn’t focused on living up to the pressure of replacing Adrian Peterson.

“He is a future Hall of Famer,” Cook said, via Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press. “This is my first year in the NFL. I am not as close to him, so I cannot compare myself to him at all because he is going to go down as one of the greatest backs in history probably. So I just have to go out there and work and I cannot have that in my head.”
