Kevin Bowen of 1075TheFan writes that the Colts should consider diversifying and getting bigger at the receiver position this offseason between free agent options and the draft.
Colts GM Chris Ballard previously explained the risks that come with drafting a receiver out of college and expecting them to be day-one contributors.
“I don’t know if you ever get one out of the college ranks who is completely polished,” Ballard said, via Bowen. “They have traits to be ready. It’s one of the harder positions coming in this league. Can it be done? Yes. It can absolutely be done. You see it in the league right now. With all the press coverage, with all the different looks they get, with the physicality and all the things they have to deal with in our league, it’s not an easy transition.”
New Texans WR Randall Cobb said it was tough deciding between Dallas and Houston, but he eventually chose a fresh start with the Texans despite the Cowboys giving him a great opportunity last season.
“(Dallas) made the decision a little bit tough to either go back to Dallas or Houston,” said Cobb via Jon Machota. “I was excited about the opportunity to come to Houston but Dallas definitely did give me that opp. I thank that organization for believing in me & giving me the chance (last year).”
- James Palmer notes that Cobb said the Cowboys told him last year that he had weak hamstrings and they worked to strengthen them, Cobb mentioned that he felt the best he had in five or six years.
- When asked about the Titans’ lack of activity in the free-agent market, Jim Wyatt of the team’s official site notes that Tennessee’s top priorities were to re-sign QB Ryan Tannehill and RB Derrick Henry.
- Although Wyatt believes Titans QB Logan Woodside will compete for the backup role, he expects Tennessee to sign another quarterback in free agency or added one in the draft.
- Wyatt also expects Titans’ second-year WR A.J. Brown to “further establish himself” as the team’s No. 1 receiver in 2020.
