NFC Notes: 49ers, Cardinals, Falcons, Giants



  • 49ers LB Reuben Foster said of the legal issues he dealt with this offseason: “It was a big learning experience. I learned from every mistake … I learned from a lot of things. I just grew from it.” (Eric Branch)
  • Foster added: “It made me appreciate football a lot better, It was crazy knowing that football can be gone. But just being back on this field with my brothers and these coaches is a blessing.” (Eric Branch)


Cardinals HC Steve Wilks told reporters on Saturday that the backup quarterback competition is between Mike Glennon and rookie Josh Rosen and the starting job is Sam Bradford‘s lose.

“I don’t waver that Sam is our starter. It’s his job to lose,” Wilks said, via

“I think Josh is doing a great job, as well as Mike Glennon,” Wilks said. “Those guys are getting the reps they need, and once we really get into the swing of things, particularly with me, it comes down to preseason games and giving those guys the chance to get in there and perform. We see how they really start separating themselves.

Giants GM Dave Gettleman told reporters on Friday that his cancer is now in remission after undergoing treatment this offseason.

“I feel really good. Sometimes I feel like I’m apologizing for that,” Gettleman said, via “But you know, my energy is good. I’m not telling you, chemo ain’t fun. There has been a couple days where, oof, it rocks your world. … It’s not fun.”

Well, you know, what was really weird was that I didn’t quite understand it,” Gettleman added. “Here I am thinking I’m pretty smart. When he told me, ‘You’re in complete remission,’ it was like, it was kind of weird.”
