AFC South Notes: Colts, Texans, Titans



  • According to Kevin Bowman of 107.5 The Fan, the top three positions of need for the Colts this offseason are quarterback, defensive tackle, and wide receiver.
  • Bowen mentions that while Jacoby Brissett is not a bad quarterback, he believes to have success at a high level, the Colts needs a consistently elite signal-caller.
  • Both the aging group of wide receivers and defensive lineman on the Colts did not have enough production last season and the team should look into offseason upgrades, according to Bowen.


  • According to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, Texans LB Benardrick McKinney underwent arthroscopic ankle surgery. He’s expected to make a full recovery by the start of next season. 


The Titans have come up as a potential landing spot for Patriots QB Tom Brady this offseason, and on a couple levels it makes sense. Brady would reunite with friend and former teammate Mike Vrabel, who’s the head coach of the Titans. Tennessee also doesn’t technically have a starting quarterback under contract for 2020. However, if you ask Titans RB Derrick Henry, he’s not in a hurry to ditch Ryan Tannehill after their run to the AFC Championship game — which included an upset of the Brady-led Patriots. 

“He still can play,” Henry said in an interview with teammate Taylor Lewan and former teammate LB Will Compton on the Bussin’ with the Boys podcast. “Obviously, age doesn’t matter for him, he’s still playing at a high level, but my question would be: Why ain’t Ryan good enough, you know? . . . speaking for everyone on the offense, we fed off of him . . . Ryan Tannehill is our quarterback and went to the AFC Championship, why would we not want Ryan back?”

  • Albert Breer of SI mentions that the Titans have only one franchise tag, but two potential players to use it on in Tannehill and Henry.
  • The team must make a decision before March 10th and Breer believes Henry would be better suited to receive the franchise tag, given that his production last season and the short shelf-life of the running back position.
