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.


New Orleans Saints

Roman Harper is No. 10 on the Top 25 player countdown from the Times-Picayune.

Drew Brees passed his physical and signed his new contract on Sunday, a full day before the 4 p.m. ET deadline (ABC News).


Atlanta Falcons

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution looks at the defensive line as training camp approaches.

Not only do the Falcons need their left tackle to help more in the pass rush, Atlanta's run game had miserable results running toward the left tackle, too (Atlanta Field Report).


Carolina Panthers

Cam Newton took heat last week for agreeing to hold an autograph session where he charged up to $175 for signature. On Saturday, only 300 people showed up (Examiner).


Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Eric LeGrand penned the newest edition of Monday Morning QB while Peter King of Sports Illustrated was on vacation. It's a must-read.


NFC South

ProFootballTalk posted every team's cap-space figure as of July 15. The Buccaneers are sitting in the best spot in the NFC South with $15.74 million, while the Saints have the worst of it at just $2.12 million.

There was some NFC South representation on this Football Perspective list of the greatest pass-rushers of the last 30 years.
