  • He added that he was surprised when the Colts called to say they were signing QB Philip Rivers but understands the way the NFL works. (Erickson)
  • Brissett says that he can still play at a starting-caliber level in the NFL: “I still believe in myself, I still believe I’m a starter in this league, and I still believe I can play at a very high level, and I believe I did that last year.” (Zak Keefer)
  • Colts’ veteran DE Justin Houston says he intends on playing past the 2020 season.

Houston adds that when it comes to where he wants to play, he hasn’t thought that far ahead. (Keefer)


  • Texans HC Bill O’Brien spoke about new DT P.J. Hall who recently failed a physical which voided a trade to the Vikings: “We’re taking a chance on P.J. He’s got to get into shape. You won’t see him out there today. He’s got to do a little proving that to us. He’s working his butt off. We’ll keep watching him and get him out there when we can.” (Aaron Wilson)
  • O’Brien also spoke about WR Kenny Stills, who began training camp on the NFI list saying: “I don’t think it’ll be too much longer before he is practicing.” (Aaron Reiss)


  • Titans HC Mike Vrabel said of seventh-round pick QB Cole McDonald: “We know that Cole was going to be a developmental player. There’s a lot of skill set to like — size, ability to extend plays. He’s got to become more familiar with our system.” (Eric Bacharach)
  • Titans hosted DE Jamal Davis for a visit on Friday. (Albert Breer)
