RTC: Colts make classy gesture for Freeney

Reading the coverage around the AFC South…

Houston Texans

J.J. Watt will visit U.S. military bases as part of a USO tour this offseason, says Nick Scurfield of the team’s website.

The Texans didn’t use their franchise tag, says Scurfield.

Arian Foster says he’s done with Twitter, the Houston Chronicle points out.

To which I say: I’ll believe it when I see it over the long-term. But he’s a disciplined guy, so if there is a reason he wants off he can stay off.

Indianapolis Colts

The Colts extended defensive tackle Fili Moala, retaining a guy who can continue to help a reshaped front once he gets healthy. The team’s website has the press release.

Jeff Saturday will retire as a Colt on Thursday, says Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star.

The Colts added a “Thanks for the memories” stripe to the Dwight Freeney banner hanging on Lucas Oil Stadium, says Chappell.

To which I say: Know it's not the first time they've done such a thing, but still classy.

Jacksonville Jaguars

A former Jaguars coach said Blaine Gabbert had a habit of passing the buck, a habit that earned him the nickname Blame Gabbert, says Mike Silver of Yahoo! Sports.

To which I say: Wow, actual criticism of Gabbert from someone who's worked with him. The franchise has done incredible work shielding him from such things in his first two seasons.

Best player available doesn’t fit the reality of most draft rooms in the NFL, says John Oehser of Jaguars.com.

Tennessee Titans

Sidetracked by the Peyton Manning chase a year ago, the Titans didn’t want to expend energy fighting with Jared Cook over the level of his franchise tag. That’s one reason the Titans bagged the tag, says Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.

You could say the Titans got their money’s worth out of their defense in 2012, because they didn’t spend much, says Wyatt.

Contract details for George Wilson, from Wyatt.
