AFC Notes: Jaguars, Texans, Titans


Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence feels that he will get along well with new HC Doug Pederson and is looking forward to his sophomore season in the NFL under a Super Bowl-winning head coach.

“I really like his demeanor. He’s really, really calm,” Lawrence said of Pederson, via Pro Football Talk. “Never gets too high or too low, I really like that. That’s the type of guy I like to be around. Offensively he brings a lot of different things to the table… I think we align pretty well and we’re on the same page.”
