NFL Notes: Colts, Jaguars, Lions, & Patriots


  • ESPN’s Mike Wells does not believe RB Matt Forte will be on the Colts’ radar this offseason.
  • While Wells thinks the Colts will need to find a running back for the future, sixth-round pick RB Josh Robinson will likely get another chance backing up Frank Gore next season.


  • Jaguars GM David Caldwell said during his end-of-season conference that Jacksonville is in the position to select the best player available in all rounds of the draft. (Michael DiRocco)


  • Mike Rothstein of ESPN does not think the Lions will pursue impending free agent WR Percy Harvin, due to his lack of durability and history of being a disruption in the locker room.
  • Rothstein lists offensive tackle, defensive tackle, linebacker, defensive back, and wide receiver as positions to watch for the Lions in the first three rounds of the draft.
  • Rothstein can’t see the Lions signing free agent DT Nick Fairley, unless he came at a “super cheap” price.
  • Browns RT Mitchell Schwartz is a player Rothstein believes the Lions will consider pursuing if he reaches free agency.
  • If Calvin Johnson elects to return for the 2016 season, Rothstein writes his $24 million cap number would require the Lions  to discuss a restructure or pay cut.
