NFC South afternoon update
By Pat Yasinskas
Let's take an afternoon run through some headlines from around the NFC South.
The team has announced the signing of 24 undrafted free agents.
Joseph Person has his post-draft depth chart for the Panthers. It includes first-round pick Star Lotulelei as a starter at defensive tackle. That’s a foregone conclusion. The Panthers drafted Lotulelei expecting him to be a starter from Day 1.
NEW ORLEANS SAINTS
Although many fans are assuming safety Roman Harper will be released after the team drafted Kenny Vaccaro, that’s not necessarily the case. Harper’s base salary is partially guaranteed and releasing him wouldn’t free up a lot of cap room.
The Saints have announced the signing of 13 undrafted free agents, including former Tulane quarterback Ryan Griffin.
TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS
Gary Shelton writes that it’s hard to imagine Tim Tebow finding another home in the NFL after his release from the New York Jets. Tebow’s best shot might be to switch from quarterback to tight end or fullback. But, even with a position change, I don’t see Tebow landing in Tampa Bay. I’ve poked around and indications are the Bucs don’t have any interest in the former University of Florida star.
