NFC West Q&A: At 32, how is Cardinals’ Larry Fitzgerald viewed?

By Josh Weinfuss

Today’s question: At 32 and in a new role, how is wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald viewed among the teams in the NFC West?

Nick Wagoner, St. Louis Rams: The easy answer in St. Louis is this: With unanimous respect. Every year when the Rams are preparing to play the Cardinals, Rams defenders go out of their way to pay their respects to Fitzgerald. And well they should, considering his 138 catches for 1,631 yards and 16 touchdowns in 22 career games against them. Fitzgerald didn’t get much done against the Rams in the final meeting between the teams in 2014, but he posted nine catches for 112 yards in the first matchup. That said, considering the slugfest nature of the Rams-Cardinals meetings last season, it’s the big plays St. Louis has to worry most about now. That’s not Fitzgerald’s game anymore, which means the Rams will have to be more aware of Michael Floyd and John Brown moving forward.

Does Tre Mason Have a Future with the St. Louis Rams?

by Colin Hubbard

When running back, Tre Mason was selected by the St. Louis Rams in the third round of the 2014 NFL draft, many thought he would be the guy to bring the strong running game back to the promise land. The Rams had been without a solid back since the loss of Steven Jackson and addressed that need with a player who shredded defenses in college football.

Growing up, Mason was always running, whether it be in football or track and field. Mason ran the ball out of the backfield as well as returned kicks in high school, and was also a sprinter and jumper in track. Coming out of high school in Lake Worth, Florida, Mason was ranked as the nations 14th best running back and received several division one scholarships.
