New Colts DC Matt Eberflus said they are focusing on improving the team’s tackling ability and overall hustle this summer.
“We’ve always said that we will be a good tackling team when our corners tackle and we will be a good hustling team when our d-line hustles,” Eberflus said, via Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan. “So we are always looking at those two things and those two groups. That’s the thing that has been said in this system for a long time and that’s the things that we are trying to evaluate.”
Despite suffering a season-ending ACL tear last year, Texans QB Deshaun Watson says he’s not changing any aspects of his game and injuries are just part of the game.
“Injuries are going to happen,” Watson said, via DailyPress.com. “I’ve dealt with this injury before as a freshman. And I played the same way I did the year before. There’s no point in switching up the routine. I’ll stay prepared and stay fit throughout the year, not just in the offseason but throughout the season. I do what I do. I don’t want to change anything that got me here.”
Watson added that his knee is feeling “real good” and suggested that he should be ready for the start of training camp.
“I’m very excited. The offseason program is very, very good. Everyone came out healthy. Everyone came out successful and better. It’s a better team and a more competitive roster,” Watson said.
Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com writes that half a dozen teams were interested in signing undrafted RB Akrum Wadley following this year’s draft, but he opted to sign with the Titans and is now hoping to show he belongs in the NFL.
“We have some really good backs,” Wadley said. “You have Derrick Henry, Dion, Fluellen. Me and Dawk are learning from those guys, and they’ve set a really good example so far.
”I felt like I had a chance to compete here.”
