A weekly look at the top stories being discussed on the other three NFC South blogs on SB Nation.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (via Bucs Nation)

  • Mike Evans restructures deal. The longtime Buccaneer helps the team by freeing some cap room. Regardless, Marshon Lattimore is still going to shut him down twice a year.

  • Bucs add 10 players to their practice squad. Already a perfect team, the perfect Bucs added ten perfect players to their perfect practice squad, which will help them go 17-0 next season. Yes, sarcasm drips heavily from my plume.

Atlanta Falcons (via The Falcoholic)

  • Jalen Mayfield may start against Eagles in opener. The Falcons’ biggest question mark (the offensive line) got a hit when presumed started Josh Andrews got hurt. Now rookie Jalen Mayfield may have to get his first NFL start against Philly on the road. Not ideal for Atlanta, thus in New Orleans we love it!

  • Falcons add former Giants running back Wayne Gallman. In a move that eliminated all running backs that were on Atlanta’s roster last season, the Falcons brought in a running back that had some success last season in New York, especially after the injury to Saquon Barkley.

Carolina Panthers (via Cat Scratch Reader)

  • David Moore released by Carolina. Once a promising free agent signing at wide receiver, Moore clearly did not impress offensive coordinator Joe Brady and head coach Matt Rhule enough to stick around.
