Around the NFC South

Let's take a look at some odds and ends from around the NFC South:


The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that safety William Moore was arrested on a battery charge. It’s too early to tell if Moore will face any disciplinary action from the NFL or the team. The Falcons said they still are gathering information on the situation.


New general manager Dave Gettleman made it clear he has final say in what the Panthers do in the draft. That’s a bit of a change from the past. Previous general manager Marty Hurney shared the power with former coach John Fox. Hurney had final say in the first two drafts with current coach Ron Rivera, but liked to say the two worked in conjunction with each other.


The Saints open their season hosting the Atlanta Falcons. But Jeff Duncan reports that may not be a good omen. The Saints are 0-6 against the Falcons in season openers and the average score has been 35-13.


Ira Kaufman has an overview of Tampa Bay’s situation at linebacker. The Bucs are set with Mason Foster in the middle and Lavonte David on the weak side. But there’s a vacancy on the strong side after the release of Quincy Black. The Bucs signed Jonathan Casillas as a free agent, but could look to add competition through the draft.
