AFC Notes: Colts, Jaguars, Jets


  • On Monday, the Colts brought in free agent safeties Tre Boston (NFLTR) and Kenny Vaccaro (NFLTR) for visits.
  • Stephen Holder says his understanding regarding the Colts’ interest in safeties is that there is nothing imminent between the Colts and either player at this point in time.
  • Holder adds that he wouldn’t expect the Colts to sign either of them unless and until they determine that there is an actual need at the position.
  • Colts’ first-round DB Malik Hooker announced on Twitter that he has begun field work after recovering from a torn ACL he sustained in October of last year.


Jaguars QB Cody Kessler explained that after the Browns traded for Tyrod Taylor, he told his agent to try to find a new opportunity for him.

My agent was talking to them, and obviously they got Tyrod [Taylor] and what happened last year, I think I didn’t really have a future there,” Kessler said, via Mike Kaye of First Coast News“I told my agent I wanted [another] opportunity … It was kind of a long process through it all and obviously, I’ve only been in the league for two years, so I didn’t really know how it worked but [my agent] just told me ‘if that’s what you want to do, we’ll work on it and see what we can do.'”

While Kessler says he “definitely wanted to go somewhere else“, he’s thankful for the Browns drafting him and giving him his first opportunity in the NFL.

“Nothing against Cleveland, they drafted me and gave me an opportunity and I’m forever thankful for that but – yeah – with how last year went and kind of the situation I was dealt with, I definitely wanted to go somewhere else,” Kessler added.


  • According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, some within the Jets wonder how OLB Lorenzo Mauldin will bounce back after missing all of last season with a back injury.
  • Mehta says that the Jets will hope for the best, but Mauldin is not guaranteed a roster spot this season and there’s a “growing sense” he’ll be cut.
