NFC Notes: 49ers, Cardinals, Seahawks



49ers’ DC Robert Saleh is turning a blind eye to any coaching rumors involving him and is focused completely on his team’s upcoming game against the Bills.

“To be completely honest, I didn’t see anything or hear anything until coming off the practice field,” Saleh said, via Pro Football Talk. “So I don’t know what to make of it or anything like that. So it’s just whatever, I guess, you know. This league is so week to week and the most important week right now is Monday Night Football against Buffalo and we’ve got a team that’s in the middle of the playoff hunt, so it’s really a non-issue for me. I don’t talk about it. I don’t really even see it. I don’t have social media, I don’t look into the news. So it’s probably more for family and friends to enjoy and get a kick out of than it is for me. We’re completely locked into Buffalo.”


Cardinals’ DT Domata Peko is thrilled to be with Arizona and said that even with other offers on the table, he was waiting for the right team to call him.

Peko added that Cardinals’ DC Vance Joseph influenced his decision to sign with the team.

“I had a couple other calls during the offseason to join a couple different teams,” Peko said, via Alex Weiner of “But, I was just waiting for the right call. In Year 15, I want to go somewhere that has a chance to contend, a chance to go and lift up that trophy in February. So, that was part of my decision, making sure I’m going to a contender. And then Coach (Vance) Joseph. Once the nose guy went down, he reached out to me and told me that he needs some help. And I love Coach Vance. It really can help a lot when you know a coach, you know the system and you’ve been through the system before. When you come in the middle of the season, you want to make sure you kind of know the playbook. There’s a lot of the same terminology and so I was able to just plug right in and start last week.”

  • Cardinals promoted RB D.J. Foster and TE Seth DeValve to their active roster.


Seahawks’ veteran TE Greg Olsen (foot, injured reserve) said he has made “good strides” with his recovery and hopes to finish the regular season on the active roster. 

“Right now I’m rehabbing to come back and finish this year,” Olsen said, via Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News. “I’m doing really well. I’m hoping to be back here hopefully in the next few weeks, before the end of the regular season, and hopefully onward for a while in the playoffs. So my season is by no means over. I’m really making good strides. I’ve made a lot of progress in the first two weeks. So I’m hoping [to have] another couple weeks of progress like I’ve had [already], and hopefully [I’ll] be able to finish this thing up.”
