AFC Notes: Colts, Jaguars, Texans, Titans

     

Colts

  • Between Colts HC Frank Reich, OC Marcus Brady and QB coach Scott Milanovich, there will be a number of former quarterbacks working to fix new QB Carson Wentz. However, Milanovich says the key is for all of them to be on the same page so Wentz is hearing “one voice” from the trio and not mixed messages. (George Bremer)
  • Milanovich says he’s watched what he can of backup QB Jacob Eason but it’s just tough to evaluate since there’s so little tape on him. (Joel Erickson)
  • Former Auburn TE Sal Cannella worked out for the Colts as well this week. (Aaron Wilson)

Jaguars

  • ESPN’s Michael DiRocco points out that new Jaguars TE coach Tyler Bowen comes from Penn State, which makes TE Pat Freiermuth a name to watch for Jacksonville in the draft to address their big need at the position. 
  • NFL commissioner Roger Goodell noted the Jaguars will be able to continue holding home games in London and those won’t count toward either the NFL’s yearly four international games or Jacksonville’s turn in the international rotation. (Ben Volin)

Texans

Texans GM Nick Caserio hasn’t had much to say about QB Deshaun Watson this offseason, not to other teams and not to the media. Caserio made the first comments from the team aside from an initial statement on allegations of sexual assault and harassment against Watson, though, calling them troubling and saying the team will wait to see how the legal process plays out. 

“It’s a legal process so we’re certainly respectful of that,” Caserio said on a team podcast via Rivers McCown. “We certainly take them very seriously. The allegations, what’s been discussed, are certainly troubling. Organizationally that’s not something that we can condone, those types of actions. But, again, we’ll let the legal process take care of itself.”

Titans

  • Paul Kuharsky notes that Titans’ TE Anthony Firkser‘s one-year deal has a $1.75 million base salary which is guaranteed. Firkser also received a $1.25 million signing bonus and will carry a cap hit of $3 million for 2021.
