The latest Talkin’ Seahawks Podcast affected on all of the latest account about the division. NBC Sports Bay Area’s Matt Maiocco, articulation of the Rams J.B. Long and Cardinals cabal Darren Urban all abutting the appearance to accommodate intel on the teams they cover.
San Francisco 49ers
San Francisco had austere decisions to accomplish with key players in chase for new deals and the disability to pay everyone. The 49ers afraid everyone, trading DeForest Buckner to the Colts in barter for the 13th-overall aces in 2020.
“The 49ers declared ambition this offseason was to accumulate as abundant of the agenda complete as possible,” Maiocco said. “Everybody, myself included, consistently anticipation DeForest Buckner was affectionate of a non-starter in agreement of accepting rid of him.”
Indianapolis handed Buckner a advantageous multi-year accord account $21 actor annually. San Francisco absitively the aces and cap accumulation was the best advance of action. The 49ers were able to lock up Arik Armstead, who had a blemish analysis in 2019 with 10 sacks, to a four-year accord account $17 actor per year.
Keep an eye on superstar bound end George Kittle, who is a applicant to authority out if he doesn’t get a new contract. Kittle should be in band for the richest bound end arrangement in NFL history account about $12 actor APY. Nobody could accusation him for not absent to comedy out his amateur arrangement and accomplish aloof $2 actor in 2020.
As for the draft, the Buckner accord gives the 49ers added armament to retool and reload a agenda that fabricated the Super Bowl in 2019.
Many 49ers admirers achievement the aggregation acreage Alabama receiver Jerry Jeudy, but Maiocco thinks it would be astute for San Francisco to ambition a tackle. Joe Staley will be 36 by the time Week 1 arrives, and Maiocco isn’t absolute he will comedy in 2020.
“Even if he does, at his age, they charge to accept their band of assumption accessible to go at larboard tackle,” Maiocco said.
I’m still aggravating to amount out how Arizona was able to acreage DeAndre Hopkins in barter for David Johnson’s aggrandized arrangement and a beggarly second-round pick. And yet, actuality we are. The Cardinals showed affiance in 2019 with Kyler Murray and Kliff Kingsbury, apparent by a absolute alley achievement over the Seahawks in Week 16.
The accession of Hopkins gives Arizona a abeyant juggernaut breach with Kenyan Drake, Larry Fitzgerald, Christian Kirk and Murray.
“I anticipate that’s the hope, obviously,” Urban said. “If you can get your aggregation in a acceptable position while your quarterback is on his amateur deal, you accept a lot of adaptability on the roster. That’s affectionate of how they’ve approached this.”
Arizona additionally added arresting linemen Devon Kennard (7.0 sacks in 2019) and Jordan Phillips (9.5 sacks in 2019), as able-bodied as linebacker De’Vondre Campbell (129 tackles in 2019). Thanks to a advantageous chargeless agency, the Cardinals accept affluence of adaptability with the 8th-overall pick.
Don’t be afraid to see Arizona alteration from clean to NFC West contenders in abbreviate order.
“They’re aggravating to access things up as bound as possible,” Urban said. “Frankly, in this division, you bigger access up or you’re activity to be larboard in the dust.”
Los Angeles Rams
Most of the Rams moves accept been centralized re-signings or players affective on from Los Angeles.
Nickell Robey-Coleman, Cory Littleton, Dante Fowler Jr., Todd Gurley (cut) and Clay Matthews (cut) are all notable departures. The Rams were able to absorb larboard accouterment Andrew Whitworth and arresting lineman Michael Brockers.
“Let’s face it, they’re active by a appealing bound account appropriate now,” Long said. “Every admission has to accept an outbound at this point. The Rams accept absolutely absent some abundant players, and I would put Eric Weddle, who was called to the All-Decade Aggregation and retired beforehand this offseason, on that account as well.”
Per overthecap.com, the Rams accept the atomic cap amplitude in the absolute alliance at beneath than half-a-million dollars. Shedding big affairs was crucial, although Los Angeles won’t acquire the allowances until 2021. That’s aback they’ll accept to pay brilliant bend Jalen Ramsey, who will assuredly apprehend record-setting money.
With Gurley no best in the picture, the Rams will acceptable arrange a active aback by board access in 2020. Darrell Henderson (2019 third-round pick) and Malcolm Brown (third-down aback and appropriate teams ace) are the centralized options. Long additionally expects the Rams to ambition a active aback in the draft.
“I would be afraid if the Rams are done at active aback this offseason,” Long said.
Many apish drafts accept slated Ohio State’s J.K. Dobbins to the Rams at aces No. 52 in the additional round.
