NFC South links: Panthers players work out

Atlanta Falcons

The team's 2011 No. 1 draft pick, Julio Jones, recently worked out for the first time with quarterback Matt Ryan but took it slow since he's still recovering from foot surgery.

Former Falcons safety Erik Coleman, whom the team cut in February, is glad he signed a contract with a team before the lockout. “Being a free agent and not knowing where you’re going to go once the lockout is done would probably be a very frustrating thing,” Coleman said.

Carolina Panthers

Offensive linemen Jordan Gross and Travelle Wharton organized informal practice sessions for players on Tuesday.

Would the Panthers be interested in any Ohio State players who are reportedly considering entering the NFL's supplemental draft?

New Orleans Saints

Defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove says he'll be ready when the time comes to play.

None of the Saints' rushers broke the top 25 in Pat Kirwan's ranking of the NFL's best running backs. Reggie Bush and Mark Ingram both fit in in the 26-30 range.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Was Marvin Lewis' beef with the Bucs a result of regret?

Mike Freeman of CBSSports.com believes former Bucs coach John Gruden would take the Ohio State coaching job if he were offered it.
