NFC West Notes: 49ers, Cardinals, Rams



  • According to NBC Sports’ Matt Maiocco, the 49ers first two draft picks, DE Nick Bosa and WR Deebo Samuel, are represented by the same agency as OT Mike McGlinchey and DE Solomon Thomas
  • Bosa and Samuel have not yet signed their rookie contracts, which are fixed financially, as the agency presumably negotiates offset money and how the signing bonuses are paid out. Thomas and McGlinchey each signed their deals near the start of training camp. 
  • If the 49ers elect to only keep two quarterbacks on the active roster, both Nick Mullens and C.J. Beathard are eligible for the practice squad, if not signed by another team. 
  • Maiocco says his sense is the 49ers feel pretty good about their running backs and would not be candidates to trade for RB Le’Veon Bell in the surprising event he’s available. 


  • Ben Volin of the Boston Globe confirms reports that Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson was “ticked” Arizona wouldn’t rework his contract to help offset the financial impact of the suspension much like the Patriots did with Tom Brady in 2016 by converting his base salary into a signing bonus.


Rams third-round RB Darrell Henderson was excited to land in Los Angeles in the Rams’ offense.

“If you go back and watch my college film and you watch the Rams film, it’s the same,” Henderson told the Los Angeles Times’ Arash Markazi. “I thought that was the best system I could get in. So everything worked out great. When I was talking to them, everything was clicking and we developed a relationship. The coaches told me they knew they were going to get me so it was the perfect fit.”

  • The Boston Globe’s Ben Volin notes that releasing or trading DE Michael Brockers would save the Rams $10 million in cap space, though a restructure might be more likely.
