  • Houston is expected to retain CBs coach Dino Vasso, per Wilson. 
  • Texans GM Nick Caserio said he was “open-minded” during the coaching search and didn’t eliminate Josh McCown due to his lack of experience: “You don’t necessarily want to eliminate any candidate because they don’t have a certain level of experience.” (Brooks Kubena)
  • New Texans HC Lovie Smith on the team’s current quarterback situation: “In time things work themselves out. Davis Mills did some good things. He played about as well as any rookie quarterback this season.” (Will Selva)


Titans GM Jon Robinson told reporters that the team needs to add more depth at wide receiver this offseason.

“I think we’ve got to continue to add depth at that position group,” Robinson said, via Ben Arthur of The Tennessean. “Some guys that can win [against man coverage]. It’s another thing that affects the quarterback play. … There are so many timing things on route concepts. I think depth and health at that position will certainly bode well for us moving forward.”

  • PFF’s Brad Spielberger estimates Titans WR A.J. Brown could sign a four-year, $80 million extension if Pittsburgh prioritized getting an extension done for him this summer.
