NFC West Notes: Cardinals, Rams, Seahawks



Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson, who just returned to the team from suspension, said he is committed to the team for the next 10 games. 

I’m here. I have a contract with the Cardinals for this 10 games and next season. Whatever happens after that, that’s pretty much out of my control,” said Peterson, via Bob McManaman of The Arizona Republic.

Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury said RB David Johnson‘s back injury may be an issue that lingers for the next two weeks. 

We’ll be smart with him as well, but that’s something that may linger for a couple weeks,” Kingsbury said, via Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.


Regarding Rams’ recently acquired CB Jalen Ramsey‘s on-field antics, HC Sean McVay believes players with “some swag, personality” are helpful. 

“You want guys with some swag, personality. Different things like that. As long as those guys love football, they love competing every single day. I think this is a building that will suit him well,” said McVay, via Lindsey Thiry of ESPN. 

Ramsey said he is hopeful to play in Sunday’s Week 7 game. 

“I hope so, we’ll see,” said Ramsey, via Thiry. 

Rams GM Les Snead there is “no timeline” on a contract extension for Ramsey at this point in time but added the cornerback has “earned a chance” for a big contract. 

“No, no timeline on that,” Snead said, via ProFootballTalk. “We did put a timeline a little bit in place with it. I don’t want to give too many details on that. Again, we are just meeting Jalen today. Obviously. He to date has earned a chance to probably get a nice contract for the job he does and the position he plays.”


Seahawks DT Jarran Reed finished serving his six-game suspension and says he’s excited to be back.

I remember I cut everything off, TV, lights, and I was at home just popping my eyes open checking the time on my phone,” Reed said, via Pro Football Talk. “I was real just excited to be back. Of course, I’ve been gone for like 42 days. I counted every one of them. I’m just happy to be back.”

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll expects Reed to give their defensive front a boost now that he’s back. 

“I think we’ll see a difference now that J-Reed is back,” Carroll said. “I think the complement that he brings, not just what he’ll do, but how he’ll affect the other guys. He’s a really savvy football player and he takes advantage of the calls and the leans and tells that guys give him. He’s really good at it. It’s what he just blossomed at last year. I think he’ll be a factor in helping other guys playing well around him.
