NFC West Notes: Cardinals, Rams, Seahawks



The Cardinals went all-in on bolstering their team after apparently hitting on No. 1 overall QB Kyler Murray last year. With the advantage of Murray being on his rookie deal, Arizona traded for WR DeAndre Hopkins and made multiple additions to bolster the defense. Now, Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson says the 2020 team could be the best one he’s ever been on. 

“This is probably the best football team I’ve been a part of on paper. . . . What we’ve been able to add to the team this year, what the front office has been able to accomplish this offseason (without) being able to see guys and not being able to be around, it’s been second to none. I mean, unbelievable.” Peterson said via Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals website.


  • The Athletic’s Jourdan Rodrigue and Rich Hammond look at the Rams running back position, where second-round rookie Cam Akers could fill a similar role eventually to the recently-released Todd Gurley because of his dual-threat skill set. 
  • However, the Rams also have 2019 third-round RB Darrell Henderson, who Rodrigue and Hammond think will be used as a complementary back to Akers in a 1-2 punch. 
  • That likely leaves RB Malcolm Brown as an emergency backup running back. 


Seahawks CB Quinton Dunbar issued an apology on his Instagram for the distraction his recent arrest for four charges of armed robbery has caused to the organization. 

“I would like to thank all my fans for the support and apologize to the Seattle Seahawks organization for any unnecessary distractions that these allegations against me may have caused,” Dunbar wrote. “In addition, I am very grateful to be apart of a team that supports one another and uphold the credibility of each of its members through adverse situations. Moving forward, this entire situation has taught me how to not associate myself with environments that may mischaracterize my values and who I am.”
