NFC West links: Another loss for Harbaugh
By ESPN.com staff
Tom Moore, who will carry the title of assistant head coach/offense, said at the team's recent news conference that he's ready to give it his all in Arizona, following surgeries on both knees.
Arizona Republic columnist Dan Bickley sums up Moore's arrival in Arizona: "Unlike former defensive coordinator Ray Horton, Moore’s impact will not be heard in sound bites or radio interviews. It will be seen in the comfort level of his quarterback, in pass-protection schemes, and in players who will no longer feel like square pegs in round holes."
San Francisco 49ers
Delanie Walker is the top target among 49ers free agents, per the San Francisco Chronicle, and he's atop a group that includes three starters: safety Dashon Goldson, nose guard Isaac Sopoaga and wide receiver Randy Moss.
Coach Jim Harbaugh handled defeat in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am a whole lot better than he did a week ago in Super Bowl XLVII -- with a big smile.
The 49ers are still looking for consistency at wide receiver, and NFL.com's Dan Hanzus says Percy Harvin could help out in San Francisco.
According to the 12th Man Rising blog, Arizona QB Matt Scott is the most likely player to be drafted to become Russell Wilson’s backup.
St. Louis Rams
With a much tighter cap situation, the Rams may be lucky to sign a couple of starters via free agency, says Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Mike Singletary, a former teammate of Jeff Fisher in Chicago, is the latest known candidate to interview for the still vacant Rams defensive coordinator position.
Will the Rams leave St. Louis? David Hunn of the Post-Dispatch reports some good news -- for now -- for fans.
And for all those dreaming about baseball and still loving football, Seattle's KCPQ-TV sports director Kevin Levine calls the Mariners the "St. Louis Rams of the American League West."
