2019 ‘Best’ NFL Free Agent Period Tournament (NFC South)

Looking strictly at the offseason moves through mid-March…the signings, lost players, trades, etc. Pitting two teams against each other and trying to evaluate which team got better through all their moves.

We’re going to go division-by-division, head-to-head tournament style, to get eight winners and then pit those finalists against each other until we get to the top AFC and NFC representatives and declare a ‘best of 2019’.

***Saints vs. Falcons***

New Orleans

Key adds: OC Nick Easton, DT Mario Edwards, DT Malcom Brown, RB Latavius Murray

Key losses: RB Mark Ingram, DE Alex Okafor, OC Max Unger (Ret.)

Atlanta

Key adds: OG James Carpenter, OG Jamon Brown

Key losses: RB Tevin Coleman

Analysis: The Saints upgrade at RB and add solid DT depth. It’s hard to replace Max Unger, but they tried. Not a ‘wow’ offseason, but OK.

The Falcons added some O-Line help and lost a running back they weren’t really using anyway.

Winner: Neither team did anything special, but I’ll give the very slight edge to the Falcons for beefing up their O-Line a touch.

===================

***Bucs vs. Panthers***

Carolina

Key adds: OC Matt Paradis

Key losses: LB Thomas Davis, WR Devin Funchess, LB David Mayo

Tampa Bay

Key adds: LB Shaquil Barrett, WR Breshad Perriman, RB Andre Ellington, LB Deone Bucannon, OG Earl Watford

Key losses: LB Kwon Alexander, WR Adam Humphries, LB Adarius Taylor, QB Ryan Fitzpatrick

Analysis: Carolina lost nothing, essentially, but did add the top Center free agent.

Not sure what the Bucs are doing. A downgrade at inside linebacker. A downgrade at WR. They lost their best QB. I like Bucannon, Barrett, and Perriman but you figured Arians would have a lot of guys wanting to join him…but I think the word is out, players are tired of the Arians act – even Tyrann Mathieu didn’t go back to Papa. Others went with Arians former D-C now in New York (Giants). Perhaps, the Bucs were just playing it cool on purpose this free agency. Whatever the plan or not-plan, the Bucs are not radically better today.

Winner: The Panthers gain a top starter and lost little/nothing…Carolina wins.

======================


FINALS

***Panthers vs. Falcons***

Carolina

Key adds: OC Matt Paradis

Key losses: LB Thomas Davis, WR Devin Funchess, LB David Mayo

Atlanta

Key adds: OG James Carpenter, OG Jamon Brown

Key losses: RB Tevin Coleman

Analysis: Both teams lost little, per se, and did all their additions with the O-Line.

Winner: Matt Paradis is a much greater impact than the Falcons’ OL adds. It’s not overwhelming, but Carolina creeps to the victory in the NFC South and move on to the Final eight.
