NFC South evening update

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- I’ve been tied up with the Carolina Panthers' minicamp all afternoon and am working ahead on some stuff for Thursday. But let’s take a quick minute to run through some other things going on around the division.

  • Although the bounty scandal has made former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams an unpopular figure with a lot of people, New Orleans Saints safety Roman Harper said he still thinks highly of his former coach. He said he’ll always remember Williams as someone who helped the Saints win a Super Bowl and as a friend.

  • So far, it sounds like defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley is fitting in nicely with the Saints. I like the signing of Bunkley much more than I liked last year’s additions of Aubrayo Franklin and Shaun Rogers. In other words, I think Bunkley can have a significant impact on this defensive line.

  • The Atlanta Falcons just announced they have released long-snapper Corey Adams.

  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano said he likes what he’s seen out of cornerback Eric Wright in minicamp. Wright missed much of the offseason with an undisclosed health issue. Schiano said he hopes the issue is behind Wright.
