- Josh Weinfuss says that while Marcus Gilbert can be a capable right tackle for the Cardinals, drafting a tackle with the No. 8 pick is not out of the question.
- Weinfuss also believes that trading down would make the most sense for the team due to the fact that they have already filled their needs.
- Bob McManaman of The Arizona Republic believes the team could stray from drafting a tackle in favor of a player such as Auburn DT Derrick Brown, Clemson LB Isaiah Simmons, or Oklahoma WR CeeDee Lamb.
Todd Gurley told Chris Long on the “Green Light” podcast that he did not see his release from the Rams coming.
“I didn’t see it coming, but obviously I’ve seen the process over the years, so I understand the business and I understand how it goes,” Gurley said, via Vaughn McClure of ESPN. “But I’m also the same type of person like when someone else is getting cut, I’m joking on them. So I can’t get mad if somebody jokes on me. I joke on myself all the time. If you knew me, you know that’s me. And it’s all jokes. It’s some truth to every little joke.
“But I’m still just having fun with it. And that’s the only thing I can do. Stuck in the house all day. I know people are drinking and having fun, so I’m going to have fun with y’all.”
Former Redskins CB Quinton Dunbar says his issues with the team weren’t solely related to a contract extension.
“It wasn’t all solely based on a new contract,” Dunbar said, via MyNorthWest.com. “It was about just, basically, I gave a lot to the Washington Redskins organization. It was more just a respect factor in that situation with the contract. It didn’t have to be based solely on an extension or anything like that. But no, it’s not going to be an issue in Seattle.”
Dunbar says he ultimately wanted to play for the Seahawks.
“Before the trade was given I had an opportunity with a couple of teams and I wanted to go to Seattle,” Dunbar said. “At the end of the day I feel like it’s a perfect situation for me to go out there and play for a team that competes for a championship every year. So I’m just looking forward to that and everything will take care of itself. I just wanted a new beginning and I’m just going to go out there and help in whichever way I can. Everything else will take care of itself.”
