- 1075TheFan.com’s Kevin Bowen points out the Colts were ready to go into 2021 with WR Michael Pittman as their No. 1 option if need be, as they slow-played the market before bringing back T.Y. Hilton.
- He adds the team is hopeful QB Carson Wentz can help bring back the deep ball to Hilton’s game after his production tailed off the past couple of seasons. A healthy year from WR Parris Campbell is also another major X-factor.
- Jacksonville.com’s Garry Smits notes in his viewing, Jaguars QBs Gardner Minshew and C.J. Beathard battled to a draw during OTAs and minicamp. Training camp could provide some more clarity on which one of them will be the backup quarterback.
- Smits adds that while the Jaguars made it a point to go out and add Beathard which led many to assume they would trade Minshew, the fact that they’ve held on means they either haven’t gotten the reported fifth-round pick they were seeking or they want to see things play out more in training camp.
- According to PFF’s Brad Spielberger, the Jaguars gave second-round CB Tyson Campbell $50,000 in guaranteed money in the fourth year of his contract, which established a new NFL rookie contract precedent for second-round picks.
- NFL Media’s Judy Battista reports Jaguars first-round QB Trevor Lawrence will participate fully once training camp begins.
Terry McCormick of TitanInsder.com highlighted in a recent article the upcoming position battle at right tackle for the Tennessee Titans.
- McCormick says the Titans are hoping second-round OT Dillon Radunz shows enough in camp to win the job outright.
- The Titans appear to be hedging their bets, according to McCormick, by bringing back OT Ty Sambrailo as well as OT Kendall Lamm given that Radunz will be making the leap from North Dakota State to the NFL.
- Veteran OT David Quessenberry is also available, though he spent a good deal of time on the left side filling in for OT Taylor Lewan and Sambrailo. McCormick is unsure of his ability to switch to the right side.
- With the other four spots on the offensive line seemingly locked in, McCormick believes the right tackle position, barring injury, is the only position on the offensive line up for grabs going into the 2021 season.
