- According to 1070 The Fan’s Kevin Bowen, Colts LB Justin Houston was the team’s most important offseason addition because of the jolt he gives Indianapolis’ pass rush.
- Bowen ranks WRs Devin Funchess and Parris Campbell No. 2 and No. 3 on the list of most important newcomers as they provide more weapons for QB Andrew Luck.
- Bowen says it’s possible RB Spencer Ware could go from third string to starter if RB Marlon Mack were to be hurt.
- According to Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, the Colts turned down at least one trade offer from the Seahawks last year for QB Jacoby Brissett.
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.”
