NFC West Notes: 49ers, Cardinals, Rams



49ers veteran CB Richard Sherman said the team handled the situation involving LB Reuben Fosteras best they could” and he understands the decision to cut the former first-round pick.

“It’s what they had to do,” Sherman said, via NBC Bay Area. “I think the organization has handled the situation as best they could. Obviously been patient and deliberate and understanding of who Reuben is and what kind of heart he has. But it’s a really compromising situation for the team, repeatedly. So, you understand the decision the organization has to make, after repeated offenses.
