AFC Notes: Colts, Jaguars, Texans, Titans

     

Colts

  • In a survey of NFL analytics personnel by ESPN’s Seth Walder, the Colts were highlighted as one of the best at incorporating analytics into their decision making.
  • The protected practice squad K Matt Gay and TE Farrod Green from signing with other teams.

Jaguars

Jaguars LB Myles Jack was told that he was switching positions during the offseason program after struggling last season. 

“It’s a performance-based job, and I feel like I completely shit the bed last year. So, I completely understood what they were going for,” said Jack via NFL Media’s Mike Giardi.

  • NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero notes Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew has not given the team much reason to believe he’s not a franchise quarterback.
  • Pelissero adds with a huge cache of picks, including two firsts and two seconds, and up to $90 million in cap space, the Jaguars could put a really good team around Minshew if they decide he’s their guy to build upon in 2021. 

Texans

  • In a survey of NFL analytics personnel by ESPN’s Seth Walder, the Texans were highlighted as one of the most analytically advanced and one of the best at incorporating analytics into their decision making. 

Titans

  • Per Erik Bacharach of the Nashville Tennesseean, Titans DC Shane Bowen is hoping to get more of a rotation as the season goes along and OLBs Vic Beasley and Derick Roberson return to the lineup.
  • Both OLBs Harold Landry and Jadeveon Clowney have had high snap counts despite Clowney signing just a week before the season and Bowen talking this offseason of lowering Landry’s reps: “Hopefully as we get a little bit more healthy, we’ll be able to keep guys fresher.”
  • Former agent and CBS Sports analyst Joel Corry says Clowney likely needs to match or better his career-high of 9.5 sacks to get the $20 million per year he’s looking for in free agency in 2021. 
  • In a survey of NFL analytics personnel by ESPN’s Seth Walder, the Titans received the second-most votes as the NFL’s least analytically advanced team. Tennessee lists zero full-time analytics staffers on its website.
