NFC West Notes: 49ers, Rams, Seahawks



  • According to the Athletic’s Vincent Bonsignore, the addition of third-round RB Darrell Henderson could push RBs Justin Davis and John Kelly off the roster, though he adds Davis is talented enough to catch on elsewhere. 
  • Bonsignore notes WR JoJo Natson should be safe on the final roster for his ability as a returner. 
  • Bonsignore says OL Jamil Demby should be in prime position for a key backup role on the offensive line after being squeezed out of a roster spot last preseason. 
  • He adds OL Aaron Neary‘s chances of making the roster are hurt by a four-game suspension, though his ability to play center is a plus. 
  • Per Bonsignore, the Rams plan to play LB Micah Kiser primarily on running downs to transition him into a starting role. That opens up a potential spot for LBs Dakota Allen, Josh Carraway, Bryce Hager or Travin Howard to not only make the team but contribute on defense. 
  • Bonsignore mentions Rams CB Darious Williams and S Steven Parker as players with NFL futures who could be released due to the depth in the secondary. 


  • Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer expects the Seahawks to look for outside help on the defensive line after losing DL Jarran Reed to a six-game suspension. 
  • NFL Media’s Gregg Rosenthal says the Seahawks could cut RB C.J. Prosise if he can’t stay healthy.
  • Rosenthal also says Seahawks QB Paxton Lynch is likely on the outs if he can’t beat out Geno Smith for the No. 2 QB.
