NFC Rumors: Brian Burns, Hunter Renfrow, Buccaneers, Panthers, Saints

  • ESPN’s Dan Graziano says teams inquiring about Panthers OLB Brian Burns are being told the star pass rusher is not available. 
  • Panthers HC Frank Reich said their focus was on first-round QB Bryce Young throughout the pre-draft process: “My eyes and our eyes were on Bryce (Young) from start to finish.” (Joe Person)
  • Reich said CB Jaycee Horn has had “zero setbacks” in his rehab process but said it could be “a minute or two” before he steps back on the field in a game situation. (Person)


  • ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler has talked to some teams that think the Saints are at least keeping tabs on the trade market for a receiver, and could be interested in reuniting Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow with QB Derek Carr.
  • Saints GM Mickey Loomis on the arrest of WR Chris Olave: “I don’t have a lot of comment on that. I think he was going too fast in his car and he’ll have to face those consequences. But we’ll let that play out.” (Jeff Nowak)
