NFC Notes: Cardinals, Cowboys, Seahawks


  • Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic expects Cardinals RB David Johnson to receive around the same amount of carries per game as he did last season when he averaged 23.3 per game.
  • Somers could see the Cardinals throw more deep passes in 2017 with WR John Brown healthy and WR J.J. Nelson having another year of experience.
  • Josh Weinfuss writes that while OLB Kareem Martin has made progress in recent years, he could be on the roster bubble this summer after the team brought in Jarvis Jones and drafted Haason Reddick in round one.
  • Weinfuss could see both Reddick and second-round S Budda Baker starting for the Cardinals this season.


  • Cowboys third-round CB Jourdan Lewis will stand trial next week for one misdemeanor domestic violence charge, according to Dan Murphy.
  • The Jury selection process is scheduled to start on Monday and Lewis’ attorney, John Shea, said he hopes the trial will be over by Tuesday.
  • Shea added: “Parties will always prefer to avoid trials if they can. Some cases, they have to be tried, and this is one.” (Orion Sang)


Seahawks quarterback Trevone Boykin was facing a year of jail time for violating probation after he was arrested a few months ago.

Boykin pleaded no contest to the charge earlier this month and was fined $1,500 to close the case.

The good news for Boykin is that his attorney tells Greg Bell of the News Tribune that there was “no finding of guilt” in the matter and coordinator for Bexar County Court added: “He is done with us.”

  • While Seahawks took a flyer on former No. 3 overall pick DE Dion Jordan this offseason, Sheil Kapadia believes he could have a tough time making the team.
  • Jordan is coming off of knee surgery and missed offseason workouts. Beyond that, Seattle drafted two defensive linemen a few months ago, which means Jordan may face long odds of securing a spot.
