NFC South afternoon update
By Pat Yasinskas
It’s been a quiet afternoon in the NFC South, but we have a few minor news items to touch on.
The New Orleans Saints are bringing back Will Herring, according to Bradley Handwerger. They recently released him because he’s a 4-3 linebacker and they’re switching to a 3-4 scheme.
But it’s pretty obvious what this move is all about. The Saints are bringing Herring back at a lower salary because they want him to play on special teams.
In other news, the Carolina Panthers will sign wide receiver/return man Ted Ginn. He spent the past three years in San Francisco, but wasn’t nearly as productive as he was in Miami during the first three seasons of his career.
By bringing in Ginn, the Panthers have made it pretty obvious they’re not sold on Kealoha Pilares, Joe Adams or Armanti Edwards.
