NFC Notes: Cardinals, Lions, Seahawks


Oklahoma HC Lincoln Riley says he “absolutely” believes the Cardinals would be a good landing spot for QB Kyler Murray.

“Oh, absolutely,” Riley tells Albert Breer of “There is absolutely zero question about that. I know there are a lot of other steps [in Arizona]—obviously, a lot of things would have to happen for that to happen. But I don’t think there’s any doubt. And part of that is I think Kyler is going to be a fit for anybody. Of course there are teams I’d rather see him with than not and coordinators I’d rather see him with than not, just personally.

“But there’s not any situation where I’d really fear for him. I think he’s going to go in and do well. Would he do a great job with what Kliff’s going to do offensively? I don’t think there’s any question.


Former Lions S Glover Quin said during an appearance on “The Pride Podcast” that he actually tried to get Detroit to release him last year. 

“I actually tried to get out of my contract going into the season,” Quin said. “Cause I just, like I said, I knew it was going to get to this point. I could see it. I knew it was going to happen. I understand the business of football and I knew we were going to get to this point so I was just trying to stop it before it even got started.”

  • According to Brady Henderson, the Seahawks have been in contact with Frank Clark‘s agent for a while, so there’s at least a chance that they could come to an agreement on a long-term extension. 
  • Henderson writes that the franchise tag would cost the Seahawks around $18 million for the 2019 season and a second tag run them another $21.6 million in 2020, which means Clark could be looking for $19.8 million per year as part of a long-term commitment.
