Around the NFC South

Time for a quick run through some odds and ends from around the division:

ATLANTA FALCONS

Former running back Warrick Dunn is taking his role as a limited partner in the team’s ownership structure seriously. Dunn recently earned an MBA from Emory University.

CAROLINA PANTHERS

Defensive backs coach Steve Wilks has comments on the slew of cornerbacks the Panthers are carrying on their roster. It sounds like he’s counting on free-agent pickup Drayton Florence to be a leader at the position.

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS

Drew Brees came in at No. 3 on Sports Illustrated’s list of the 50 highest-paid athletes over the past year. Brees’ status was elevated because he received a $37 million signing bonus when he signed a new contract last summer.

TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS

The Bucs have only three draft picks left to sign. I wouldn't be surprised if they're done by the end of the week.
