AFC South Notes: Colts, Jaguars, Texans




Jaguars QB Nick Foles has emphasized footwork during his training this offseason as he prepares to be a full-time starting quarterback for the first time since his first stint with the Eagles. 

“If you go back to high school or go back to college, I always have talked about my feet because they are always [a concern],” Foles said via ESPN’s Michael DiRocco. “I’ll always work on my feet. Playing for coach [Andy] Reid and coach [Doug] Pederson, it’s always about rhythm. That’s how it is always taught. They are great at the QB position. ‘Flip’ [John DeFilippo] was my coach, my quarterback coach with Frank Reich in Philly. They always harp on feet and target line, and anytime you can keep your feet under you and you work the pocket, you can buy some time. Football is not 7-on-7; 7-on-7 is a three-hitch throw, a five-hitch throw. Real football is when you have to work the pocket, move, get hit, do all of the crazy throws from bad hips and all that. But you want to always work on your feet and keep them moving.”


  • Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer writes that Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney is expected to play out the 2019 season under the franchise tag. 
  • Clowney and the Texans aren’t expected to reach a long-term deal by the July 15 deadline, per Breer.
