- When examining the Colts’ 90-man roster, Andrew Walker of the team’s official site mentions that Indianapolis typically keeps only two quarterbacks, but they did have three on their roster late last season.
- Walker adds that the Colts are high on both fourth-round pick Jacob Eason and Chad Kelly, but it could be difficult to get one of them through waivers on their practice squad.
- As for the Colts’ receiving corps, Walker writes that nine players could be competing for “just one or two spots” on the active roster. This group consists of Ashton Dulin, Marcus Johnson, Daurice Fountain, Rodney Adams, DeMichael Harris, Malik Henry, Artavis Scott, Chad Williams, and sixth-round Dezmon Patmon.
New Jaguars TE Tyler Eifert expects to hit the ground running in terms of the team’s offense, considering that he previously worked with OC Jay Gruden back in Cincinnati.
“We get along great,” Eifert said, via John Reid of the Florida Times-Union. “I had a good understanding of the offense he runs. Just having that familiarity with the offense is nice. There’s some new stuff in here. But just being familiar with it and having a general idea of what’s going on makes it a lot easier to learn.”
“It is definitely a great feeling, that you can just go into the offseason and get ready to work,” Smith said, via Jim Wyatt of the team’s official site. “The past two years for me, in the offseason I’ve kind of been in recovery mode. This is the first season I got to actually really go at it 100 miles per hour as soon as the season ended. We lost to Kansas City (in the AFC Championship Game), and I was back working within a week-and-a-half I was so excited to get back to it. Me being able to get back to it and get back in the swing of things, it was definitely a good feeling.”
Smith mentioned that he’s been meeting with Tannehill at a local park in South Florida to help build chemistry prior to the 2020 season.
“It’s been very helpful, just building the chemistry and taking advantage of being in the same location,” Smith said. “We’re just trying to get ahead and continuing to work on our craft so we can improve any way we can. It’s been great we’ve been able to get that work in, and I’m sure it will put us in a good position during the season.”
