AFC South Notes: Colts, Jaguars, Titans




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.”


Titans TE Jonnu Smith said he’s been working with QB Ryan Tannehill this offseason and has had no limitations after dealing with a knee injury at this time last year. 

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.”
