NFC South links: Sky isn't falling on Saints

Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons have set a franchise record for season-ticket sales.

Falcons kicker Matt Bryant was among the players who spent time fishing Wednesday with Wounded Warrior veterans.

Carolina Panthers

Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer: "The three big-bodied linemen who are the anchors of the Carolina Panthers’ 2013 NFL draft class are under contract."

Mike Tolbert is excited to be a part of offensive coordinator Mike Shula's plan for the ground attack.

New Orleans Saints

John Roach of The Times-Picayune: "Coming off a non-playoff season that was historically bad for the defense, the Saints would seem to be ripe to be picked apart. But on 'Black and Gold Today,' Larry Holder points out that the sky isn't exactly falling, and the team has several positives heading into 2013."

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Adrian Clayborn is fine with the team limiting his action this offseason as he recovers from a knee injury.

Tight end Tom Crabtree speaks highly of his new teammates in Tampa. "Being here for a month, these are some of the best, most gifted athletes I've been around," said Crabtree. "That's not taking anything away from Green Bay; they obviously have talented guys as well. But coming here there was no drop-off as far as the athleticism and talent of the guys."
