Cardinals’ GM Steve Keim laughed when asked about what WR Larry Fitzgerald is currently doing and reckons that the future Hall of Famer is likely riding into the sunset.

“I think Larry is probably at Pinehurst on the ninth green,” Keim said, via Darren Urban of “Enjoying his life with a sasparilla. I think Larry is content where he is and really happy with how his career and life has gone with the Phoenix Suns. I think he’s really happy right now.”


Rams GM Les Snead said that “a lot of teams” have inquired about acquiring OT Joseph Noteboom but Los Angeles “always said no” to other teams. 

“Internally, we’ve felt confident in what Joe does. And just to give everyone a little bit of insight, Joe’s one of those players where a lot of teams tried to trade for him,” Snead said, via RamsWire. “They looked out our lineup and looked at how Joe’s maybe the third tackle and we always said no, that wouldn’t be a worthwhile trade based on the upcoming season and the attrition that goes into (it).”

Snead is excited about Noteboom’s opportunity to start in Week 15 with OT Rob Havenstein on the COVID-19 list. 

“Jacked for Joe and hopefully the good news is that we drafted him to be a part of the Rams for a while,” Snead said. “We felt like he had a chance to develop into a very productive offensive tackle in this league and we’d like to keep that marriage going.”
