NFC West Notes: Cardinals, Quarterbacks

Cardinals‘ general manager Steve Keim and head coach Bruce Arians met with the media last Thursday, and Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com took some notes to get into the team’s draft process. Weinfuss writes that the team could look to draft a quarterback in the second-round, hopefully to succeed Carson Palmer in 2015.

Here are some other notes from around the NFC West:

  • Keim has the Cardinals looking at other positions besides quarterback, noting there is considerable depth at both wide receiver and offensive tackle, writes Weinfuss. With Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd, the team has a good set of receivers but could look to add a dynamic speed threat as a third option. However, the team could really benefit from finding a tackle who can come in and become a starter right away.
  • While the Rams may not be looking to move on from Sam Bradford, the team is still looking to select a quarterback sometime on draft weekend, writes Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com. The team is not be linked to the top three quarterbacks, but they could target one of the second-tier quarterbacks as a day two selection.
  • The Rams have also signed wide receiver T.J. Moe, reports Howard Balzer of LockerDome.com (via Twitter). Moe finished last season on the Patriots injured reserve list.
  • The 49ers have their top two quarterbacks set with Colin Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert, but Jim Harbaugh is always looking for his next signal caller, writes Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com. Virginia Tech’s Logan Thomas, LSU’s Zach Mettenberger, and San Jose State’s David Fales could all be possible day three draft picks.

Patriots Cut T.J. Moe, Six Others

4:21pm: In addition to the four earlier cuts, the Pats have also parted ways with running back Quentin Hines, and offensive linemen Elvis Fisher and Brice Schwab, according to Field Yates of ESPN.com (Twitter link).

4:00pm: The Pats have officially waived Moe, along with three other players, according to the team. Defensive lineman Cory Grissom, running back Sam McGuffie, and linebacker Taylor Reed have also been cut.

11:55am: The Patriots will waive wide receiver T.J. Moe later today, tweets agent Matt Brei (hat tip to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun). Brei expressed disappointment about the impending move, due to the work his client has put in to recover from a torn Achilles.

Moe was signed last April by the Pats after he went undrafted out of Missouri. However, the wideout suffered that Achilles tear in May, sidelining him for the 2014 season.
