Time for a quick afternoon trip through the NFC South headlines.

Kevin Kaesviharn's time in New Orleans didn't produce many highlights -- at least not for the Saints. But, after signing with Carolina on Monday, Kaesviharn recalled what probably was the biggest play of his career. It came in 2006 in Cincinnati, when he intercepted a Jake Delhomme pass for Keyshawn Johnson. Ironically, that play probably helped get Kaesviharn the big free-agent contract in New Orleans. It also helped trigger Johnson's exodus from Carolina. Some pretty important team officials were irate that Johnson failed to take any of the blame for what might have been a wrong break on his route.

Roy Cummings observes that linebacker Jermaine Phillips seems to be getting a lot of practice time at safety. Makes sense because with Tanard Jackson suspended for the first four games, Phillips is probably the most talented safety Tampa Bay has and the Bucs have other options at linebacker.

Our friend, Deke Bellavia, from WWL, breaks down what he's learned about the Saints so far this summer.

Robert Meachem could be in the mix for some return duties this year. We've also got a hunch he could have a pretty large impact as a wide receiver.

D. Orlando Ledbetter writes that Eric Weems has a shot to make Atlanta's roster as a receiver and return man.
