NFC West Notes: 49ers, Cardinals, Seahawks



For the first time in a while, 49ers CB Richard Sherman says he feels like he’s fully healthy. 

“It’s the first time in a few years that I’ve been able to move and groove like I wanted to,” Sherman said via ESPN’s Nick Wagoner. “I had the MCL a few years ago, had the Achilles. This offseason, I don’t have anything, thank goodness. And I’m able to just move and explode and just get to the spots I want to. I can stop when I want to stop; I can go when I want to go. It changes the whole dynamic for me.”

Cardinals WR Kevin White has dealt with injuries since entering the NFL and has struggled to live up to being a former first-round pick.

White says he’s learned a lot from his struggles and is hoping to turn things around in Arizona.

“Throughout my career and life, I’ve learned a totally different way — [Cardinals consultant Jerry Sullivan] would say ‘bad habits,’” White recently said, via “That’s been years, so it will be hard to break the bad habits, but every day we are getting closer. It’ll take time, but I’m sure by the time the season comes I’ll have everything down.

Something like that is something you can’t ever forget,” White added. “I think it shaped me into the man I am today, mentally and physically. Do I wish things were different and I didn’t get hurt? Of course. I’d be more successful. But I think it showed me some things within myself, and with the people that are truly in my corner, how much this means to them and to me.


  • According to Brady Henderson, the Seahawks signed veteran DT Al Woods to a one-year contract worth $2.25 million that includes $400,000 guaranteed.
