West Notes: Cardinals, Liuget, D. Thomas

The Cardinals are deep enough at certain positions that GM Steve Keim says he could look to make trades later this summer, Kent Somers of The Arizona Republic writes.

It’s a good concern, (but) for the first time we have a certain amount of depth here where we’re either going to have the ability to trade a player, or two, or four or five at certain positions that can not only make other NFL rosters, but could potentially start for some teams,” Keim told the Doug and Wolf show on Arizona Sports 98.7. “So I have to be active and make sure that I address that situation so we’re not just releasing players and allowing teams to pick them up.”

  • Corey Liuget‘s extension with the Chargers calls for him to earn nearly $20MM fully guaranteed at the time of signing, Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com tweets. Liuget, who turned 25 in March, notched a career-high 57 tackles and recorded 4.5 sacks to go along with a pair of forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.
  • Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is upset that Denver hasn’t hammered out a new deal with wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. No. 18 wants his favorite target back on the practice field, but that might not happen anytime soon if the two sides can’t bridge their gap.
  • Rodney Hudson got a fat five-year, $44.5MM deal (with $20MM guaranteed) from the Raiders and his teammates say he’s worth every penny, as Scott Bair of CSNBayArea.com writes. Offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave is inclined to agree. “Rodney’s done a terrific job. He’s been more than what we anticipated,” Musgrave said. “He has better movement than I think we expected from our film study and from watching from the other sideline. He’s done a great job of pulling. Guards and tackles pull a bunch in our system, but the center needs to at times, and he’s able to do that.”
