Considering the future of the Texans' passing game with Rivers McCown of Battle Red blog. “I fear that they will assume the (Gary) Kubiak model will continue to work without a real replacement for (Andre) Johnson and become a yearly fringe-contender that is incapable of really knocking the door down. Mostly, I fear watching the Colts and Titans, with their shiny new offensive pieces, becoming threats to the Texans down the line solely because they can deliver more in the most important area of the NFL.”
As Andrew Luck worked with some kids not far from the Colts’ facility, he said he's letting his agent take care of contract negotiations, says Michael Pointer of the Indianapolis Star.
The Colts signed veteran running back Mewelde Moore, a player who’s familiar with Bruce Arians’ system from their time together in Pittsburgh.
Safety David Caldwell hopes time at the NFL’s broadcast boot camp pays off in a career after football, says Phillip B. Wilson of the Star.
Patience will be required for these Colts, says Tom Mantzouranis of SI.com.
The Colts aren’t going to win the Super Bowl, but since Nate Dunlevy of Bleacher Report is doing a series on how each team in the division can do so, he puts forth this scenario.
Pro Football Weekly says Ben Ijalana and Joe Reitz will compete for the left guard spot.
General manager Gene Smith knows it’s time for high draft picks to play big, says Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union.
Tickets to a Georgetown-Florida basketball game on the deck of an aircraft carrier in Jacksonville will be packaged with Colts-Jaguars tickets for the Thursday night game at EverBank Field, says Kevin Brockway of the Gainesville Sun. (Hat tip to Adam Stites who hat-tipped Andy Hutchins.)
Says David Climer of The Tennessean: “There’s a difference between listing two quarterbacks on the same line on a depth chart and ranking them dead even. They may be 1-A and 1-B, but I suspect (Matt) Hasselbeck is solidly ahead of (Jake) Locker entering the final minicamp sessions. He should be.”
Chris Johnson was excused from Tuesday’s minicamp practice, but he’s been a regular at the facility this offseason, says John Glennon of The Tennessean.
Guard Leroy Harris was back in action on Tuesday, says Glennon.
Do the Titans still need help at the safety position? Glennon asks. The depth is poor so the answer is yes.
Being with the team during the offseason was important to Michael Griffin and did a lot to help him get a long-term deal, says David Boclair of the Nashville City Paper.
