NFC Notes: Cardinals, Falcons, Rams, & Seahawks


  • Josh Weinfuss considers the idea that QB Logan Thomas could be among the Cardinals’ final roster cuts to be “pretty realistic.”
  • However, Weinfuss admits that this will likely come down to Phillip Sims and whether he’s able to continue progressing.
  • In regards to ILB Daryl Washington‘s return from suspension, Weinfuss mentions that he wouldn’t put a lot of stock in his situation being impacted by Greg Hardy‘s recent reduction.


  • According to Vaughn McClure, it would be surprising if Falcons WR Julio Jones is not signed to a long-term deal by the deadline to place franchise tags on players.
  • However, if for some reason Jones is still unsigned, McClure says it would be even more surprising if they didn’t use their franchise tag to prevent him from reaching the open market.


  • Nick Wagoner writes that it’s a fair to expect the Rams to make the playoffs now that HC Jeff Fisher has had four years in St. Louis.
  • Wagoner seems to think the Rams’ defense could end up being a top-five unit when all is said and done.
  • According to Wagoner, it appears as though the Rams aren’t interested in pursuing a deal with free agent G Evan Mathis.
  • Wagoner doesn’t rule out the Rams signing a player or two if they sustain some injuries in training camp and the preseason.
  • Wagoner mentions that it’s hard to imagine the Rams will be willing to pick up WR Tavon Austin‘s fifth-year option at a cost of around $11 million.
  • While the Rams have Barrett Jones, Demetrius Rhaney and Tim Barnes competing for the starting center job, Wagoner believes they would prefer to see Jones win the job outright.
  • Wagoner believes the odds of the Rams pursuing free agent WR Reggie Wayne are “very, very slim.”
