NFC West Notes: Cardinals, Rams, Seahawks



Cardinals president Michael Bidwill said during an interview with KFYI on Tuesday that GM Steve Keim made an “enormous mistake” in regards to his recent DUI arrest and he added that there will be consequences for him in the future.

First of all, I’m extremely disappointed,” Bidwill said. “It’s inexcusable. He did bring it to our attention right away that night and has been extremely remorseful and contrite. He’s taken steps to make things right, but the reality is that there is a process in place that the league has and there are going to be consequences here.”


  • Rams QB Jared Goff mentioned in a recent Q&A session that he struggled to find his edge during his rookie season. (Alden Gonzalez)
  • According to Goff, he had an edge in college because he was underlooked coming out of high school, but he struggled to find one as a rookie because he was the No. 1 overall pick.
  • Goff, obviously, rebounded well in his second year as threw for 3,804 yards while completing 62.1 percent of his passes to go along with 28 touchdowns and seven interceptions.


Seahawks LB Bobby Wagner explained during a radio interview with KJR that he’s more sympathetic to S Earl Thomas situation, due to the business realities of the NFL.

“You’ve got to do what’s right for you,” Wagner said, via Gregg Bell of the Tacoma News Tribune. “Because at the end of the day, whenever you are done they don’t care about you. You’ve got to get what you’ve got to get while you can. Because as soon as you can’t play, . . .

As soon as you can’t play and they don’t want you no more, it’s over. So you’ve got to make the best of your opportunity,” Wagner added.

Wagner admitted that he doesn’t know if Thomas will be in attendance for the start of training camp.

“I mean, I don’t know. It’s up to him and management to figure that out,” Wagner said. “You don’t want to get into a person’s contract. . . . At the end of the day, they are trying to figure out a way to best provide for their family. You are involved, to a certain extent, but he’s trying to take care of his family. And you want him to put himself in the best position to take care of his family. So whatever that looks like, whatever that is, that’s between him and the management.

“Do I hope comes? I do. I hope he comes. But I’m not necessarily focused on that, because I understand both sides. I understand wanting him here. And I understand the business aspect, which is not good for players. Like, we have contracts that don’t necessarily favor us all the time. So you have to do what’s right for you.”
