NFC West Notes: Rams, Seahawks, Tyler Lockett


While the Eagles locked up Carson Wentz to a four-year, $128 million extension a few days ago, but Rams executive Kevin Demoff stressed that this signing doesn’t change their current timeline get a new deal in place for Jared Goff

“I’m sure Jared went to bed happy last night,” Demoff said, via the LaTimes. “I don’t think he was disappointed to see Carson do that.”

“They seem to be on a different timetable than we are,” Demoff said of the Eagles. “I don’t think we’re naïve enough to say that Carson’s signing is not relevant. I just don’t think it changes the timing.

“The Eagles focused on what they thought was best for their organization. We’re going to focus on what’s best for our organization.”

Demoff did stress that Goff is an “important piece of our future.”

“He’s an important piece of our future,” Demoff said. “I don’t think the timing of when we sign Jared, or begin those talks, really is reflective of how we value him.

Tyler Lockett

While Seahawks HC Pete Carroll mentioned that they “won’t ever replace” WR Doug Baldwin, Carroll believes Tyler Lockett is growing into a No. 1 receiver.

The biggest thing that I learned when it comes to Doug is you have to be yourself,” Lockett said, via “I have to be able to understand who I am as a leader and what I bring to the team as a leader. The things that he brought, I was able to learn from that and I was able to see that. But he also taught me how to be myself, because if I can’t be myself, everybody else won’t be able to accept the message that I’m trying to allow them to be able to receive. So I have to be able to speak from a willing heart.”


  • Seahawks special teams coordinator Brian Schneider said David Moore continues to impress as a punt returner and that rookies Ugo Amadi and John Ursua also could get into the mix there.
  • Bob Condotta mentions that Seattle could scale back Tyler Lockett’s returner role this year.
