NFC Notes: Buccaneers, Giants, Panthers, Saints



  • The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Saturday that rookie LB Devin White has been downgraded to questionable for Week 15’s game due to an illness. 


Giants’ second-year CB Sam Beal said recently released veteran CB Janoris Jenkins was like a coach to him since entering the league. 

[Jenkins] was more like a coach than just a teammate,” Beal said, via Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News. “He didn’t have to stand there and coach me up as a rookie at practice. He didn’t have to tell me to sit by him at meetings, but he did. He made me come over in the meeting room and sit by him just because he’d coach me up.”

Beal said he would like to continue working with Jenkins over the offseason. 

“Even this offseason I’m gonna try to get with him and figure out where he’s working so he can keep coaching me up,” Beal said. “Because the knowledge he’s dropped on me has been real key to a lot of stuff, my confidence, of actually getting to the point where I’m learning the playbook and mastering the playbook.”
