NFC Notes: Cardinals, Rams, Saints


Cardinals HC Steve Wilks said Wednesday that newly acquired CB Jamar Taylor is the “favorite” to open as the team’s starting cornerback opposite to Patrick Peterson.

“I think when you look at what he’s done on paper, I think you can say that (he’s the favorite),” Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks said, via the Associated Press, “but once we get out on the field, it’s a clean slate for everybody.

“I’ve always got 100 percent confidence in myself,” Taylor said. “But at the same time, you’ve got to put the work in. You can’t just come in here and be like oh, you’re going to be the guy. There’s a ton of guys in here that are really good. I’ve been watching the last couple of days. I just have to come in here and make sure I’m doing my job so I get that opportunity.



Saints HC Sean Payton told reporters on Thursday that suspended RB Mark Ingram will be in attendance for the start of mandatory minicamp, even though he has skipped voluntary workouts up to this point.

“He won’t miss the mandatory minicamp,” Payton said, via “He’s indicated he’ll be here for that.”

“I do know he’s someone who knows what we’re doing and I’m sure is staying in shape,” Payton added.
