NFC South Notes: Falcons, Panthers, Saints



  • Adam Schefter reports that two weeks after agreeing to a deal with the Falcons, RB Todd Gurley still hasn’t taken his physical because he’s quarantined in Los Angeles. 
  • According to DE Robert Quinn, it was “coin flip” between signing with the Bears or Falcons. (Kevin Fishbain)
  • Scouts around the NFL have told Matt Miller that cornerback is the position to watch for the Falcons.
  • Miller expects Florida CB C.J. Henderson to still be on the board by the time Atlanta is on the clock at No. 16 overall.


New Panthers WR Robby Anderson said Friday that HC Matt Rhule and QB Teddy Bridgewater played into him wanting to sign with Carolina. 

“I know winning is in [Rhule’s] blood,” Anderson said, via David Newton of “I know that’s what he’s here to do. There wasn’t much he had to sell me on. When I saw Teddy sign there it really was the icing on the cake. It really attracted me to want to be a Panther.

  • One source tells Matt Miller of B/R that Panthers HC Matt Rhule and Joe Brady could surprise a lot of people and draft a wide receiver at No. 7 overall: “Look at that LSU offense. They’re going to need more athletes at wide receiver to run Brady’s scheme.”


  • While a quarterback of the future may make some sense for the Saints, Matt Miller of B/R says team sources do not expect this to happen this year “unless the value is perfect.”
