NFC West Notes: Cardinals, Rams, Seahawks



Cardinals Pro Bowl CB Patrick Peterson tells Sirius XM NFL Radio that he believes the “sky is the limit” for their defense under new HC Steve Wilks.

“The sky is the limit for us on defense,” Peterson said. “Like Coach Wilks said to you, we are going to play much faster because the scheme is so simple to where we can lineup and play football and that is what defense is all about making offenses adjust to us.”

  • Regarding the team’s quarterback position, Peterson says he definitely thinks the job will be Sam Bradford‘s, assuming he’s healthy. (Sirius XM NFL Radio)
  • However, Peterson said rookie QB Josh Rosenblew [his] mind” with how quickly he was able to step in and run the team’s offense. Peterson added that Rosen is “definitely the future of our franchise.”


Rams WR Robert Woods explained that they’ve been working to “fine tune” this offense this offseason after adding some pieces like Brandin Cooks.

“It’s how can we improve in other ways just to be ready for the season,” Woods said, via Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times. “We’ve got it. We’re loaded up and just fine-tuning.”

Speaking of Cooks, he says he’s enjoying the new opportunity with the Rams.

“Coming here from a distance, you knew this offense was special,” Cooks said. “You always wonder why. And now, you get here and you’re finding out all the reasons why that’s the case. It’s great to be able to come in here and have some freshness to it.

“It makes you want to learn more and become a better player.


Kam Chancellor appeared to have announced his retirement from the NFL Sunday night. However, he would be walking away from a lot of money by retiring.

  • Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times notes that Chancellor has $6.8 million in injury guarantees in his contract this year and another $5.2 million next year.
  • Jason Fitzgerald mentions that the most likely scenario for the Seahawks and Chancellor is for the team to place him on the PUP list for the 2018 season and see if he’s able to pass a physical next year.
