NFL Notes: Broncos, Cardinals, Rams


  • Mike Klis doubts that the Broncos would be in play for Steelers WR Antonio Brown, as reports have said.
  • However, Klis adds that Denver would have an ace in WRs coach Zach Azzanni who recruited Brown and was his coach at Central Michigan.
  • Klis mentions that new HC Vic Fangio can handle big personalities and the team has proven they can handle a “circus.”


  • According to Albert Breer, the Cardinals’ decision to hire Tom Clements as pass game coordinator makes sense when you consider that Arizona is likely to make Sean Kugler their de facto run game coordinator.
  • Breer says that Kugler’s position would make him essentially the most important offensive assistant Kliff Kingsbury has.


Rams RB Todd Gurley said he wasn’t injured during the NFC Championship game and he just played a “sorry” game.

“I was sorry as hell today,” Gurley said, via “I was sorry. So, C.J. did his thing and the whole team did its thing.”

Meanwhile, Rams HC Sean McVay told reporters that the “feel for the flow of the game” led to C.J. Anderson getting more work.

“That was just kind of the feel for the flow of the game that we had,” McVay said when asked about Gurley’s situation. “Not anything against Todd. C.J. did a nice job, but I thought that they did a nice job as a whole, slowing down our run game, and we kind of just had to grind some things out.”
