A quick trip through the Saturday headlines around the NFC South:

PANTHERS

Carolina was one of the teams with a representative at the workout of Oklahoma State tight end Brandon Pettigrew on Friday.

FALCONS

Pettigrew reportedly will make a pre-draft visit to the Falcons next week.

A lot of Atlanta fans have griped that the Falcons haven't done much in free agency. Daniel Cox makes a good point in explaining Atlanta's free-agency period really started last season when the Falcons signed receiver Michael Jenkins and defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux to contract extensions. And don't be surprised if the Falcons try to lock up receiver Roddy White at some point.

SAINTS

Liberty running back Rashad Jennings reportedly will make a pre-draft visit to the Saints on April 14.

BUCCANEERS

The father-in-law of tight end Kellen Winslow is missing in California. Winslow's father-in-law suffers from Alzheimer's and has been missing since Wednesday.
