NFL Free Agency: NFC South Tracker


We are now three days into the NFL Free Agency period for 2013. Let’s take a look at the moves made by the Carolina Panthers and their NFC South rivals. Tampa Bay has made the biggest splash of the division by signing Dashon Goldson from the NFC Champions. They’re now pursuing a trade with the Jets for the best cornerback in the league, Darelle Revis. Carolina has made very little noise this off season, it’s hard for them to pursue any big names. They’re looking to cut costs where they can so they can find the money to renovate Bank of America Stadium.
