NFC South evening roundup


Posted by ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas

Another fairly quiet day in the NFC South. But there are a few mid-level free agents making the rounds. Here's a quick roundup of the local headlines.

D. Orlando Ledbetter reports linebacker Mike Peterson will visit the Falcons at some point this week. We hear he's arriving in Atlanta tonight and the Falcons will talk to him about the possibility of switching from the middle to outside linebacker.

Bill Coats reports fullback Mike Karney, who was released by the Saints, will visit with the St. Louis Rams.

Long snapper Jason Kyle wants to stay in Carolina, but that may be difficult. The Panthers don't have much cap room and, even at the veteran minimum, Kyle will cost almost $1 million a year. Kyle's had some contact with the Cardinals and he lives in Arizona in the offseason. But the Panthers should think long and hard about letting Kyle go. He's been with them since 2001 and almost never has had a bad snap.

Roy Cummings writes the Bucs had cornerback Karl Paymah in for a visit Monday and will entertain linebacker Angelo Crowell on Tuesday.
