NFC West Notes: Cardinals, Rams, Seahawks

     

Cardinals

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald says that rookie QB Kyler Murray has a better handle on their new offensive scheme than his teammates.

“He knows the system better than we do,” Fitzgerald said, via AZCardinals.com. “He can get us into any play at any time and then he has the ultimate weapon in the exit button.

Rams

Rams radio analyst and former RB Maurice Jones-Drew says that Todd Gurley was playing through injury all of last season. 

Yes, he was banged up throughout the season. He got hurt in Week One, played through it the rest of the season,” Jones-Drew said on NFL Network, via Pro Football Talk. “He got banged up in Week One, he played through it, and he kind of just got worn down toward the end of the season.”

According to Jones-Drew, the Rams plan to do what’s needed to ensure that Gurley is more effective this season in a more limited role. 

“Todd has a plan to be ready throughout the course of the season. They want to make sure they don’t run Todd as much as they did last year and the year before, all the way to where he can’t perform the last two games of the year,” Jones-Drew said.

  • Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk writes that the Rams will have a “significant” decision to make regarding Gurley in 2020. 
  • Florio mentions that Gurley will have $10.5 million become fully guaranteed on the third day of the 2020 league year. 

Seahawks

Seahawks K Jason Myers says he’s happy to be back in Seattle after losing the kicking job last year to Sebastian Janikowski

“It feels the same. I was very comfortable with everybody last year. Big part of the reason why I came back,” Myers said, via Pro Football Talk. “Everything kind of felt like I never left in a way so just kind of building off what we did last year.”

A fresh start, kind of. What I went through two years ago, I took it as more of a learning experience than trying to get down on myself for getting let go in Jacksonville,” Myers added. “I took that as a positive and I knew I was hitting the ball well out here last year and it kept clicking back there in New York.
