AFC Rumors: Jaguars, Patriots, Texans



  • Jason La Canfora continues to hear that the Jaguars are “somewhat split” on what to pay Nick Foles
  • Jaguars executive VP Tom Coughlin remains very intrigued by some quarterbacks in the draft, according to La Canfora, and there are questions about the market for Foles outside of Jacksonville. 
  • There’s also the possibility that they could get Case Keenum on the cheap if/when the Broncos release him. 
  • With this in mind, La Canfora says Foles-to-the-Jaguars may not be the slam dunk many think. 


  • Michael Giardi reports that “the belief” regarding Patriots and DE Trey Flowers is they would like to see what his market value is before determining if they can match a potential offer.
  • Giardi mentions that the Patriots used this philosophy with re-signing LB Dont’a Hightower and S Devin McCourty. 
  • According to Ian Rapoport, “several teams” around the league believe Flowers will end up earning a long-term deal with $17 million annually.
  • Jason La Canfora mentions that Patriots WR Julian Edelman is very much in line for a contract extension. 
  • La Canfora wonders if the Patriots could be a fit for Titans OLB Derek Morgan


  • Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Texans are “making a push” to re-sign S Tyrann Mathieu and offered him a “preliminary contract offer.”
  • Wilson writes that it is his sense that Mathieu wants to stay in Houston.
  • Wilson also mentions that the Texans will have “plenty of other options” if they are unable to re-sign Mathieu given the “talented” free agent market at safety.
