Let's get this out of the way right now, I'm going to include Drew Brees. Technically, he's without contract and not an official NFC South player.
I don't really care, he'll be a Saint this season and I'm going to throw him in here. Also, spoiler alert, he's in the top spot. What about the other nine?
Anyone that follows the NFC South knows that it's an offense-heavy division.
Therefore, it's going to be tough for a defensive player to sneak onto this list.
1. QB Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints
Here he is. This is a fairly easy choice. As for his contract, I expect them to work something out within the next month or so, he means too much to the franchise and city for them to let anything happen, especially given their current state.
Brees will have his normal array of receivers back, minus Meachem and will be ready to go. Hopefully Mark Ingram can chip in with a running game between the tackles.
2. QB Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers
BEST OF MAXIM
On Monday, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees posted a message on Twitter that compared the current bounty scandal to the Iraq war when the U.S. claimed there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, but they ended up being wrong. It looks like after listening to responses from numerous people, he realized it wasn’t the best thing the say.
Brees took some...
Nobody has been blown away by the little evidence that the NFL has released publicly in regards to the alleged bounty program that the New Orleans Saints had been running for the the past few seasons. All that Commissioner Goodell and his office have given to are 200 pages of what is supposedly a 50,000-page [...]
With the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal currently going on, as well as a contract stand-off between the Saints and quarterback Drew Brees, it doesn’t look like tight end Jimmy Graham will get a long-term deal any time soon.
Another problem that the Saints have, is that they don’t have the cap room at the moment to lock Graham up to a long-term contract.
Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma and his attorney, Peter Ginsberg, left Monday's appeal hearing prematurely, claiming commissioner Roger Goodell did not provide new evidence in a timely manner. Ginsberg said the hearing was "a sham." The NFL handed over select evidence Friday, adhering to the required three days notice of evidence before Monday's appeal. It...
Former New Orleans Saints defensive tackle Anthony Hargrove met with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Tuesday and afterwards told the media that it wasn’t him saying, ”Bobby , give me my money,” during the 20o9 NFC Championship game.
Jason LaCanfora has Hargrove’s complete statement laid out on CBSSports.com.
We also have a video of Hargrove talking to the...
Anthony Davis is in New Orleans for a meet-and-greet with the team that is expected to make him the NBA's top overall draft pick next week.
The Hornets have yet to confirm publicly whom they intend to select at No. 1, but that's among the worst kept secrets in the world.
The Hornets did not ask the 6-foot-11 Davis to work out, but did have him pose for pictures in a white...
The NFLPA recently released the NFL’s evidence against the New Orleans Saints’ bounty scandal, one piece of evidence which includes former Saints’ defensive coordinator Gregg Williams actually referencing Dog the Bounty Hunter.
The majority of the evidence that comes by way of Deadspin.com is contained within six PowerPoint presentations that were shown to the Saints’ defense...
As NFL OTAs come to an end, so do the hopes of making an NFL team for many undrafted free agents around the league. Penn Staters were not immune from that disappointment this week.
For a few established Penn Staters in the NFL, the week was far from disappointing as they have already started to increase their roles for this upcoming season.
Here’s what happened with Penn...
Rob Gronkowski just got a record extension for a tight end, 54 million over 6 years, but don’t expect the same to happen for Jimmy Graham. Graham essentially matched Gronkowski in production last season and is also heading into his 3rd year after being taken in the 3rd round in the 2010 NFL Draft, the same draft where Gronkowski went in the 2nd round.
Like Gronkowski did, Graham...
The four NFL players associated with the so-called "Bountygate" had their day with Commissioner Roger Goodell- and one left really early...
Jonathan Vilma only hung around for an hour before stating his case in front of a bunch of microphones...
The other three players, Anthony Hargrove, Scott Fujita, and Will Smith all arrived at the NFL offices...
Something I've done in the painstakingly long "bountygate" process is accept that Roger Goodell is going to get his way, live with the fact that the Saints will be without numerous key coaches, front office members, and players, and just move on. I think it's time we all do that, honestly. Regardless of what side of the fence you sit on, at the end of the day, I...
NEW ORLEANS (AP) The agent for suspended defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove says the NFL has used semantics, but not hard evidence, as the basis for punishing current and former Saints players in its bounty investigation.
In a statement emailed to The Associated Press on Sunday, agent Phil Williams questions whether the NFL made Hargrove a central figure in its investigation because...
Drew Brees through a Twitter shoe at President Bush when he compared Bountygate to finding WMDs in Iraq.
Saints owner Tom Benson and suspended general manager Mickey Loomis will be allowed to meet during Loomis' 8 game suspension. The reason is that Benson owns the New Orleans Hornets, and Loomis is director of basketball operations for the NBA squad. The NFL expects Loomis...
