I just finished writing a Camp Confidential profile on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It will pop up early this afternoon. Meantime, here's a quick look at the top stories across the rest of the NFC South.

Carolina defensive end Julius Peppers had been silent since he reported to training camp. He broke his silence after Monday night's game with the Giants. But as you might expect, if you know anything about Peppers, he didn't have much to say.

No practice for the Saints on Tuesday as they travel to Houston to begin joint workouts with the Texans.

John DeShazier writes that the Saints cut cornerback Jason David a year too late. He also points out things were doomed from the moment the Saints first signed David.

The injury to receiver/return man Harry Douglas has created opportunities for a lot of guys in Atlanta's camp. One guy who's making the most of his chance so far is Eric Weems, who's been doing some nice things as a receiver and in the return game.
