Around the NFC South

Free agent safety Sean Jones is expected to make a decision between the Buccaneers and Titans soon.

The Panthers have re-signed offensive tackle Rob Petitti to a one-year deal.

Former Tampa Bay offensive lineman Jerry Wunsch ponders the possibility of the Bucs taking an offensive lineman early in the draft.

Daniel Cox has his latest mock draft and he’s got the Falcons taking outside linebacker Sean Weatherspoon, which would make a lot of sense.

The Bucs signed a backup linebacker you’ve probably never heard of over the weekend. In other words, if Jon Alston even makes the roster, it will probably be as a special-teams player.

Speaking of special-teams guys, Adam Schefter now is reporting the Panthers have signed former San Francisco defensive back Marcus Hudson to a one-year deal.
