NFC Notes: Cardinals, Packers, & Panthers



  • Josh Weinfuss writes that the Cardinals may end up playing a lot of nickel this season to get their deep group of safeties more playing time.
  • In the end, Weinfuss considers¬†S Tony Jefferson to be the odd man out.
    2014 first-round pick S Deone Bucannon will likely play more nickel linebacker, according to
  • Weinfuss, which leaves Tyrann Mathieu and Rashad Johnson will likely be the starting safeties.
  • Weinfuss considers it a three-man race between Logan Thomas, Chandler Harnish and Phillip Sims for the NO. 3 quarterback job.


  • Rob Demovsky writes that although the Packers appear to be sticking with Andrew Quarless, despite his recent arrest, there’s still a chance they could sign a tight end at some point.
  • Demovsky adds that it would not be surprising to see Green Bay sign someone before the start of training camp.
  • Demovsky specifically mentions that Jermaine Gresham is the best available tight end.
  • According to Demovsky, the Packers are still bracing for the possibility that DT Letroy Guion will receive between a one and four-game suspension for his offseason arrest.


  • David Newton expects fullback Mike Tolbert to have a “significant” role in the Panthers offense in 2015.
  • Newton considers Corey Brown to the be the Panthers No. 3 receiver.
