NFC West Notes: Cardinals, 49ers, Rams, Seahawks




  • The Athletic’s Matt Barrows writes he can see WR Dante Pettis leading the 49ers in receiving next year, but the second-year wideout has to stay healthy. 
  • Barrows predicts Adrian Colbert and Jaquiski Tartt will be the two starting safeties Week 1. 
  • Barrows says LB Kwon Alexander, RB Jerick McKinnon and OL Weston Richburg are candidates to start training camp on the PUP list. 
  • Per Nick Wagoner, 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin says he has “100 percent interest” in competing in the long jump at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. 
  • 49ers TE Garrett Celek had back surgery which will sideline him two months. (Matt Maiocco)
  • 49ers OT Mike McGlinchey had a platelet-rich plasma treatment on his knee, but expects to be ready for training camp. (Maiocco)
  • Second-round 49ers WR Deebo Samuel tweaked his hip and did not participate in minicamp Tuesday. (Wagoner)


Rams WR Robert Woods has three years left on the five-year, $34 million deal he signed with the Rams after leaving the Bills. He’s far outperformed his $6.8 million average yearly salary, but isn’t thinking about a new deal, yet. 

“I go out and compete every single day, and work to be the best,” Woods said via Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times. “And I just think my play will show it all. I feel like I will get what I deserve.”

  • The Athletic’s Vince Bonsignore writes the Rams are likely content to lean on second-year LB Micah Kiser as their second starting inside linebacker this year. 
  • Bonsignore adds LB Clay Matthews took some reps at inside linebacker, as well as outside linebacker and defensive end. 


  • Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer says that second-round S Marquise Blair and third-round LB Cody Barton could see significant playing time for the Seahawks even though both already have established starters ahead of them.
