Each morning, I like to start the day off with a workout—usually a morning jog. I can clear my head, plan my day and think about what’s going on around the NFC South.

Cam Newton turned down a jersey number switch that would have taken him back to No. 2, which he wore in college at Auburn when the Tigers won the BCS title. Newton originally wanted No. 2, but Jimmy Clausen had it and wanted to keep it. Now Clausen has switched to No. 7, but Newton wanted to stay with No. 1 because of the success he had with it during his rookie season. [Charlotte Observer]

Apparently Cam Newton is trying to revitalize one of his old nicknames. [NFL.com]

 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Rookie Doug Martin seems to be shining in pass protection, which was an area of weakness last year for the Bucs. [Pewter Report]
