AFC Notes: Colts, Jaguars, Texans, Titans


  • ESPN’s Michael Rothstein identifies the Patriots, 49ers, Colts and Raiders as teams that have the cap space to absorb Falcons WR Julio Jones‘ contract in a trade and are contending teams with a need at receiver who wouldn’t mind taking a small gamble on a talent like Jones even if he is 32.


Jaguars HC Urban Meyer mentioned that he was “heartbroken” to not land Giants’ first-round WR Kadarius Toney. Florida WRs coach Bobby Gonzales pointed out that Meyer showed interest in Toney in the pre-draft process. 

“I had a chance to talk to coach when he came down to Pro Day about Kadarius,” Gonzales said, via Zack Rosenblatt of NJ Advance Media. “He was asking questions about what type of player he was.”

  • The Jaguars fired four veteran staff members on Monday, including assistant director of player personnel Andy Dengler, director of pro personnel Chris Driggers, director of college scouting Mark Ellenz, and assistant director of college scouting Paul Roell. (Mike DiRocco)


  • The Athletic’s Aaron Reiss thinks Texans UDFA OL Carson Green has the best chance of Houston’s undrafted free agents to make the team. 


  • Justin Melo reports the Titans are bringing in Memphis QB Brady White to rookie mini-camp.
  • The Titans have promoted scouting assistants Blaise Taylor to full-time pro scout and Matthew Miller as a college scout. (Neil Straton)
