RTC: A case for keeping Cox and Smith

Reading the coverage…

Houston Texans

Nose tackle Shaun Cody is out of the hospital after spinal surgery, says John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. Cody is heading toward unrestricted free agency.

When J.J. Watt saw a groom’s cake made in his image, he tracked down the bride before the wedding.

Indianapolis Colts

Former Colts offensive coordinator Tom Moore has new knees and a new energy to take on fulltime work with Bruce Arians in Arizona, says the AP.

Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars will be better off keeping cornerback Derek Cox and linebacker Daryl Smith, says Gene Frenette of the Florida Times-Union. Cox’s injury history is a major concern. Said GM David Caldwell: “That’s the hardest thing as a personnel person to evaluate is the presence of injuries and the future of injuries.”

The alternative to Blaine Gabbert is to “overdraft another not-ready-for-prime-time prospect and relive the whole mess for another three years instead of just one,” says Nate Dunlevy of Bleacher Report. “Or they could overpay for an aging veteran who isn't very good and add salary-cap problems to their litany of road blocks to contention.”

Tennessee Titans

Randy Moss thinks Kenny Britt can shine if he can get his head right, says Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.

If Mike Munchak goes down, he’ll do it surrounded by people that he knows and trusts, says David Climer of The Tennessean.
