NFC South Notes: Buccaneers, Falcons, Panthers, Saints



  • According to Matt Miller of B/R, the feeling around the league regarding the Buccaneers is that Jameis Winston will be back for at least 2020.
  • Miller admits Tampa Bay could still pull the trigger and select a quarterback such as Utah State’s Jordan Love or Washington’s Jacob Eason if they fall in love with one of them.
  • If the Bucs retain Winston, Miller says it would free them up to draft a defensive player like an edge-rusher or safety.
  • Nick Korte of projects the Buccaneers to receive a fourth-round compensatory pick for LB Kwon Alexander.


  • While defensive end and cornerback could be options for the Falcons in round one of next year’s draft, an NFL scout tells Matt Miller to not rule out Atlanta drafting a running back with Devonta Freeman getting older and no clear No. 2 option on their roster.


  • Dan Graziano continues to hear Baylor Matt Rhule connected to the Panthers as well as Josh McDaniels, Eric Bienemy and Brian Daboll.
  • Graziano mentions that Carolina is still looking to add some people to their front office around GM Marty Hurney and he’s keeping his eye on Titans VP/player personnel Ryan Cowden as a potential addition.


  • According to Matt Miller, the focus for the Saints right now is for them to add another wide receiver and depth in the pass-rush unit for next season.
  • OUT for Wildcard game: CB Eli Apple (ankle), RB Zach Line (knee)
