AFC South Notes: Colts, Jaguars, Texans, Titans



Jaguars HC Doug Marrone said they would bring new WR Terrelle Pryor along slowly, but added that he anticipates Pryor making himself a factor sooner rather than later. 

“He is very smart,” Marrone said via’s Phillip Heilman. “I think he has communicated well up until this point, which I’ve only had limited communication [with him]. I think that he is a big athlete with a good catch radius, and I think he will be in position to compete for a job, and I’m sure he hopes to get back to the season that he had a couple years ago where he really had a heck of a year.” 

  • Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer mentions that there’s a real path to Pryor winning a roster spot in Jacksonville, as the team doesn’t have another wide receiver with his size and catch radius. 
  • Jaguars WR coach Keenan McCardell says WR Marqise Lee has a ways to go in his recovery from a torn ACL: “He’s probably a couple weeks into training camp before he’ll be back.” (Phillip Heilman)
  • Lee said his goal was to be “out there producing” for Week 1 against Kansas City. (Heilman)


Texans WR Keke Coutee says he’s focused on preparing his body to stay healthy during the season. He’s doing a lot of stretching and soft tissue work this offseason, “flushing out my body just to get that old scarring tissue out of there.”

“What I did last season was just a little taste of what I can do,” Coutee said via ESPN’s Sarah Barshop. “Like I said, that’s in the past and this is a new season, so I’m looking to get better any way I can.”


  • According to Paul Kuharsky, first-round DT Jeffery Simmons appears to have received a fully-guaranteed deal, though some of that could potentially be for injury only.
  • Simmons received a signing bonus of $7.23 million and base salaries of $425,000, $1.07 million, $1.65 million and $2.22 million all guaranteed.
