NFC West Notes: Cardinals, Rams, Seahawks

     

Cardinals

Cardinals OLB Chandler Jones says the Patriots’ decision to trade him three years ago still drives him to this day. 

“I feel like at any time I can be traded,” Jones said, via Kyle Odegard of AzCardinals.com. “It might sound bizarre to say, but I’m someone who has been in that situation. I’ve been traded before and that little sense of rejection is a crappy feeling, honestly. That’s what drives me. That’s what motivates me. I never want to get traded again.”

“It’s not about getting double-digit sacks,” Jones added. “The big thing is just being consistent. Speaking from a coach’s perspective, you want a player that’s consistent. You want a player that you know what you’re going to get day in and day out, on and off the field. A lot of that gives credit to some of my numbers, and hopefully I can stay consistent.

Rams

In an interview with TMZ, free-agent DT Domata Peko said he would love to play for either the Rams or Chargers, but gives the slight edge to the Rams because of DT Aaron Donald

“I would like to be with Aaron Donald, man,” Peko said… “Hell yeah! That would be dope.”

The 34-year-old Peko shot down retirement rumors and says he’s definitely trying to play a 14th season in the NFL.

Domata mentioned that he visited the Lions last week, but would “love” to sign with the Rams.

“Coach McVay! Your boy, Domata Peko, here, ready to go,” Peko said. “I would love to come out here, represent L.A. and try to pursue that championship!

Seahawks

  • According to the Seattle Times’ Bob Condotta, the Seahawks are working on a contract extension with LB Bobby Wagner, who’s seeking to top the $17 million per year deal Jets LB C.J. Mosley signed in free agency.
  • Condotta anticipates a deal being done around the time training camp begins. If it hasn’t happened a week into training camp, it could be an indication the Seahawks want to see what they have with their young linebackers and are willing to franchise tag Wagner in 2020.
  • Per Condotta, fourth-round G Phil Haynes could push G Jordan Simmons off the roster since neither have the flexibility to play center.
