NFC Notes: 49ers, Rams, Seahawks, Russell Wilson


  • The Athletic’s David Lombardi writes that it would be hard to see the 49ers carrying more than five defensive tackles on the final roster into the regular season and right now Darrion Daniels and Kentavius Street might be at the bottom of the pecking order, barring injuries to players above them. 
  • Lombardi mentions the 49ers have major expectations for 2020 first-round DT Javon Kinlaw in his second season and GM John Lynch expects him to become a “dominant” force. 
  • 49ers DE Nick Bosa will be in line for a huge contract extension if he returns to form in 2021 after tearing his ACL last year, and Lombardi points out the 49ers can create cap space by restructuring DL Arik Armstead‘s deal. 


Rams CB Jalen Ramsey compared his versatility to that of Hall of Fame CB Charles Woodson.

“I like Charles because even though I say Deion is the best corner to play the game, Charles is the best defensive back to play the game because he played multiple positions in the secondary. He played corner, he played safety, he played nickel. He did a bunch of different stuff and he affected the game in so many different ways,” Ramsey said, via Rams Wire. “Me coming to L.A., that’s kind of the role that I started to be in. I’m still on the edges, on the corner the majority of the time, but here and there, they’re starting to let me be me a little bit more. Mix it in, playing a little bit of nickel. And then at some point in my career, if it takes me there to safety, I would want to do that as well. I want to have a mix of all.”


Seahawks QB Russell Wilson believes that he’s “gotten closer” to HC Pete Carroll following his trade rumors earlier this offseason. 

“I would say it’s stronger. I think me and Pete have gotten closer. Pete and I have always had a great bond but I think we had a great heart to heart,” Wilson said, via ProFootballTalk. “Me and coach Carroll’s relationship is stronger than ever.”

Wilson believes the Seahawks did well to upgrade this offseason and that his ultimate goal is to win another Super Bowl. 

“I care about winning, that’s what I want to do,” Wilson said. “That’s always been my goal, that’s always been my focus, to win it all.”
