NFL Notes: Buccaneers, Panthers, Ravens

     

Buccaneers

  • According to CBS Sports Jason La Canfora, a well-connected NFL source expects the Buccaneers to sign QB Philip Rivers, as HC Bruce Arians will be able to recruit Rivers to Florida, where he’s already moved his family. 

Panthers

  • The Athletic’s Jourdan Rodrigue narrows down the list of options for the Panthers with the No. 7 overall pick in the first round to Auburn DT Derrick Brown, South Carolina DT Javon Kinlaw, Clemson LB Isaiah Simmons and Ohio State CB Jeffrey Okudah.
  • If the Panthers do consider a quarterback in the first round, Rodrigue writes that Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa is more believable as an option than Oregon QB Justin Herbert
  • Rodrigue mocks Auburn CB Noah Igbinoghene to the Panthers in the second round, with Clemson CB A.J. Terrell another option, as if Carolina loses James Bradberry as expected, corner becomes a screaming need. 
  • Baylor DL James Lynch is a name to watch given his strong connections to new Panthers HC Matt Rhule, per Rodrigue. 
  • According to CBS Sports Jason La Canfora, a well-connected NFL source expects the Panthers to sign Saints QB Teddy Bridgewater in free agency. 
  • He also believes the Panthers are still intent on trading away QB Cam Newton once he is healthy enough this spring. 
  • However, Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer writes it’s significant that Newton feels comfortable enough to throw at the team facility, based on what he’s put on his Instagram.
