NFC South evening roundup

Posted by ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas

Not sure what to make of reports the Bucs approached Denver about a three-way trade that would have sent Matt Cassel to the Broncos and Jay Cutler to the Bucs. It didn't happen, but it shows the Bucs have a pretty grand plan at quarterback. If they were looking into Cutler, they may want somebody who is several notches above Luke McCown, who has been told he will have a shot at the starting job. McCown better not get too comfortable. It is unclear if Denver actually would consider moving Cutler. If he is on the market, this story might not be over yet.

The Saints apparently are serious about upgrading their secondary. Mike Triplett reports Darren Sharper will be in for a visit Monday. The Saints will have Jacksonville safety Gerald Sensabaugh in Sunday and St. Louis cornerback Ron Bartell already has visited.

The Buffalo Bills signed offensive lineman Geoff Hangartner. It is a great move for Hangartner, who wanted to go somewhere he could be a starter. It is a tough loss for the Panthers because Hangartner gave them quality depth at center and guard.

Meanwhile, it's official. Linebacker Michael Boley, who the Falcons didn't attempt to re-sign, joined the Giants. Boley fell out of favor in Atlanta because he wasn't a good fit as a run defender.
