Around the NFC South

Posted by ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas

A quick look at the headlines from around the NFC South.

  • The Saints reportedly have reached deals with fourth-round pick Chip Vaughn and fifth-round choice Thomas Morstead. But top pick Malcolm Jenkins remains unsigned.

  • The Wall Street Journal takes a look at what Michael Vick's future might hold. This story's a little different than the usual speculation about which teams, if any, might be interested in the former Atlanta quarterback. Instead, it focuses on whether Vick's future is at quarterback or another position.

  • Jeff Duncan writes that the Saints will go as far as Gregg Williams' defense will take them.

  • Joe Henderson makes the point that rebuilding, even if the Bucs don't like that term, isn't necessarily a bad thing. He says it was long overdue.

  • Rick Stroud takes a look at five Bucs who could be primed for breakthrough seasons.

  • D. Orlando Ledbetter reports that talks about a contract extension for Atlanta receiver Roddy White haven't yielded much and White's agent wouldn't comment when asked whether a training camp holdout was a possibility.

  • Charles Chandler points out the Panthers have very little depth at defensive tackle behind starters Damione Lewis and Maake Kemoeatu.
