Reading the coverage: Texans courting

Houston Texans

Leigh Bodden and Wade Smith arrived in Houston and had dinner with Gary Kubiak and some assistants, says John McClain.

“If Houston wants me, they can get me,” Leigh Bodden told Mark Berman.

Original Texan Chester Pitts would like to stick around, says McClain.

Richard Justice gets riled up.

The draft is the way to go at running back, says Clark Judge.

@StephStradley is pushing Texans fans to tweet @Leigh Bodden and encourage him to sign with Houston.

Indianapolis Colts

Brian Burke parses Bill Polian on statistical analysis.

Free agency Colts-style is prudent, not press-worthy, says John Oehser.

Dennis Dillon ranks Antoine Bethea as one of the top restricted free agents available.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Old friend Brad Meester helped sell Aaron Kampman on Jacksonville, where the free-agent acquisition said he aims to be known as tough and smart, writes Michael C. Wright.

The Jaguars are banking on Aaron Kampman not being another Bryce Paup, says Gene Frenette.

Pete Prisco is wary of aging pass-rushers.

Kassim Osgood’s deal is for three years and $6.675 million, with $2.975 million guaranteed. The total package could reach close to $11 million with incentives, says Wright.
