The Best Linebacker Duo in the NFL? Kay Adams of the NFL Network had high praise for a pair of Tampa Bay linebackers.

No Longer Underdogs. With the plethora of talent that they have added this offseason and a talented core of returning players, the Bucs are now considered by many to be a legitimate contender, not only in the NFC South, in the entire NFL.

Carolina Panthers (via Cat Scratch Reader)

Former Saints Eli Apple could end up in Charlotte. The Panthers have needs at cornerback, as their lone veteran at the position is former LSU Tiger Donte Jackson, who is only a third-year player. The still-unsigned Eli Apple could be an appealing target for the kitties.

What if your successes (or failures) were all about your last name? Since they have no idea who the undrafted free agents the team signed are, our friends at CSR designed a very fun method to determine how these UDFAs’ careers will pan out. All based on their last name.

Ryan getting acquainted with his new tight end. A la Tom Brady in Tampa, Falcons the Falcons quarterback has been working out with Hayden Hurst, whom the Falcons acquired this offseason. It might be time for Brees and Emmanuel Sanders to get out there and throw and catch some balls.

Adult website wants naming rights for the Superdome. Matthew Chambers takes some sour jabs at the Saints and the Superdome. All is fair in love, war and NFC South football.
