NFC South training camp one-liners

Falcons rookie S William Moore will be out for a few weeks after undergoing a procedure on his left knee.

Falcons coach Mike Smith said WR Troy Bergeron has an opportunity to expand his role thanks to WR Harry Douglas’ injury and WR Roddy White’s holdout.

Pete Prisco of CBSSports.com doesn’t think the Falcons lost leverage in their spat with White because of Douglas’ injury.

Falcons QB D.J. Shockley made some impressive throws on the run on Thursday.

Panthers DE Everette Brown has made it a point to work with DE Julius Peppers when defensive linemen pair off during practice.

The Panthers aren’t yet prepared to alter their scheme to make sure that CB Chris Gamble matches up with the opposition’s top receiver.

DT Nick Hayden wants to prove to the Panthers that he can handle starting duties with DT Maake Kemoeatu sidelined by injury.

The presence of kickoff specialist Rhys Lloyd makes for tighter battles at other positions during Panthers camp.

Saints LB Mark Simoneau isn’t having many ill effects from the back and hip surgeries that cost him the 2008 season.

Saints QB Drew Brees ran the defense ragged during 7-on-7’s and during a two minute drill on Thursday. 

Saints G Tim Duckworth and DT Rod Coleman swapped jersey numbers.

Jon Gruden, at camp to bone up for his television gig, said he thinks the Saints have a chance to make the Super Bowl.

WR Kelly Campbell was impressing Buccaneers coaches before pulling a quad and leaving practice.

The Buccaneers cancelled Friday afternoon’s practice so they could avoid back-to-back days with two practices.

Quarterbacks Josh Freeman and Josh Johnson will take the majority of reps as the Buccaneers quarterback battle continues Friday.

Sharing biographical details with Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris helped RB Kareem Huggins get an invitation to training camp, but he’ll need to impress on the field to make the roster.

    The Jon Gruden/Saints article linked above states that back in 1997 Sean Payton and Jon Gruden were booty buddies. They’d lock themselves up in the office they shared and stay there all night long. Sean Payton even says “Those days were tough, but it was worth it!” If you say so, Mr. Payton. Or was he the Mrs.?
