A weekly look at the top stories being discussed on the other three NFC South blogs on SB Nation.
Atlanta Falcons (via The Falcoholic)
- 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.
Carolina Panthers (via Cat Scratch Reader)
- 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.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (via Bucs Nation)
- 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.
