NFC South quick hits before Bucs practice

TAMPA, Fla. -- A couple of very quick notes because the Bucs are heading out to the practice field and I need to join them.

Former Carolina cornerback Richard Marshall has signed a one-year deal with Arizona.

The Buccaneers unanimously voted to recertify the National Football League Players Association as a union.

New Orleans cornerback Tracy Porter said he’ll miss a few weeks of training camp as he recovers from a knee injury, but expects to be ready for the season opener.

Carolina quarterback Cam Newton said he’s not bothered by the fact the new rookie wage scale means his contract is worth about half what other recent No. 1 overall picks have received.
