Roddy White: Falcons aren't worried about Saints trash talk

Fact: Roddy White cures ham to pass the time during the off-season The Atlanta Falcons are facing their favorite foe Sunday. And leading up to any game against the Saints, there's bound to be a little trash talk. This week appears to be no exception, with a lesser member of the Saints secondary throwing out some comicly morbid smack talk. But per Vaughn McClure, the Falcons aren't too concerned with talking. In the process of saying his team can't allow Matt Ryan to throw for 500 yards in the game, Lewis went on to tell the media, "We're definitely gonna give them their funeral." The 6-8...

Buccaneers sign DE Lawrence Sidbury, release CB Crezdon Butler

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed defensive end Lawrence Sidbury, a 2009 fourth-round pick for the Atlanta Falcons who managed five sacks in 48 games as a defensive end. Sidbury signed with the Indianpolis Colts last year, but spent the season on injured reserve. Sidbury should help the Bucs compensate for the loss of Gerald McCoy. The Bucs will be forced to play some defensive ends like Da'Quan Bowers and William Gholston at defensive tackle, especially on passing downs, which means Sidbury could be used to fill in for them at defensive end. Butler managed some limited playing time...
