NFC Notes: Cardinals, Rams, Seahawks


Cardinals QB Kyler Murray said he wasn’t concerned over the skepticism surrounding veteran WR A.J. Green before he arrived in Arizona. 

“I heard all the talk. I had that quote before the season,” Murray said, via Bob McManaman of Arizona Republic. “But yeah, I threw to him in the offseason one time and I looked at my Dad and was like, ‘What the … What are the people talking about?”

Murray reiterated that Green “still got it” despite being an older player. 

“He’s still got it. He’s an older dude, but he’s got a younger type vibe to him as far as personality, locker room (presence), swag. He’s still got it. I’m glad he’s with us.”

Green feels he’s getting “great opportunities” in the Cardinals’ offense alongside WR DeAndre Hopkins, WR Christian Kirk, RB Chase Edmonds, and TE Maxx Williams

“I don’t think I ever left,” Green said. “I’m just getting great opportunities. When you have a guy like Hop on the other side and Kirk and the way our skill positions are playing, everybody plays us honestly. Kyler’s just spreading the ball around, getting it to Max and Chase, our offensive line, everybody is just playing well.”


Rams HC Sean McVay wants to get S Terrell Burgess more involved as he has only played one defensive snap so far this season.

“Terrell is a guy that you want to get going. I have a lot of belief and confidence in Terrell and you want to see if that’s something that comes to life when we get back,” McVay said, via
