A weekly look at the top stories being discussed on the other three NFC South blogs on SB Nation.
- Austin Hooper to reset the tight end market - The talented soon-to-be free agent tight end could fetch $11 M per year and the Falcons might let him walk. Should Hooper sign elsewhere, the Falcons lose a playmaker. Should he stay, Atlanta hinders its ability to sign key free agents. Win-win for the Saints.
- The Falcons are getting new uniforms in 2020 - If you can’t win on the field, maybe changing unis will do the trick!
- A brief history of Falcons cornerbacks drafted by their current regime - Have you ever wondered how many Dirty Bird corners have been torched by Drew over the years? This piece is for you.
- How much cap space do the Panthers have? - For a team looking to rebuild, the number might not be as high as Panthers’ fans might have hoped. Good news!
- Isaiah Simmons pegged as Luke Kuechly’s replacement - In their Mock Draft 2.0, Pro Football Focus has the Panthers selecting the ultra-talented former Clemson linebacker. Simmons was a star at Clemson and is expected to be an instant difference-maker in the NFL.
- Cam Newton is expected to pass his physical - According to sources, the Panthers’ longtime quarterback is expected to be healthy in March. Whether he will stay in Carolina or not is still up in the air.
- Is a Bridgewater-Bucs marriage a reality? - Free agent quarterback and former New Orleans Saint Teddy Bridgewater could stay in the NFC South...but in Tampa Bay. No, Teddy! Nooooo!
- The Bucs are getting new uniforms too - As a wise man once said not too long ago: if you can’t win on the field, maybe changing unis will do the trick!
- Jameis Winston expected to stay in Tampa Bay - Despite the swirling rumors, sources feel that the quarterback with the most schizophrenic play in the NFL will stay in Tampa Bay.
