AFC Notes: Colts, Jaguars, Jets



Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan examines the Colts’ top-five positions of need, including linebacker, wide receiver, cornerback, defensive tackle, and running back.

  • At linebacker, Bowen writes that all three positions should be viewed as “open” heading into training camp.
  • Bowen points out that Colts WR Ryan Grant is the only receiver on the roster other than T.Y. Hilton to record over 23 receptions in a season. According to Bowen, fifth-round pick Reece Fountain and sixth-round selection Deon Cain could push for playing time this summer.
  • Regarding their inexperience at cornerback, Bowen says that Pierre Desir must prove he’s capable of being a full-time starter and Quincy Wilson needs to show he’s grown up in his second year with the team.
  • As for the running back issues, Marlon Mack, Nyheim Hines, and Jordan Wilkins are set to be the team’s top-three players following RB Robert Turbin‘s four-game suspension.



After being arrested twice in the past two years, Jets WR Robby Anderson says he’s “grown a lot” and is being “real cautious with things now.”

“I learned a lot,” Anderson said, via “It was a valuable lesson, but I really don’t want people to look at me and focus on that situation alone because mistakes do happen. It’s not acceptable, but I definitely want everybody to understand that I’ve grown a lot from that and I learned a lot from that. I felt bad to represent the Jets in that way, my family, the people that support me — my fans — but I want them to know I have grown past that and that’s behind me, and I’m focused on the future and improving.”
