Reading the coverage: Del Rio looking for two WRs
Good morning from Lucas Oil Stadium. We'll heard from defensive linemen and linebackers Saturday, with some running backs and receivers spilling over from Friday.
I've been talking to a lot of people about the financial implications of Albert Haynesworth's pending free agency and will have a column on that up this afternoon.
As usual, let's start off with the significant headlines from around the division:
- The Texans tell their side of the Dunta Robinson franchise tag story. Here's John McClain's account.
- A look at Purdue quarterback Curtis Painter from an Indianapolis perspective, courtesy of Mike Chappell.
- Missed these from colts.com recently. Transcripts of press chats from the team's new and promoted coaches.
- The team's failings in drafts past and free agency leave it in need of wide receivers again, says Michael C. Wright who talked to Jack Del Rio.
- Count Jeff Fisher among those who think Fred Taylor can still play, says Wright.
- Gene Frenette is watching the Maurice Jones-Drew contract situation.
- What's going to become of Jerry Porter? Our own Bill Williamson says he could wind up back in Oakland.
- Updates on Kerry Collins, Albert Haynesworth and Vince Young from Jim Wyatt.
- Brandon Jones' agent says the receiver is expecting to hit the market, according to Wyatt.
- The draft looks solid with first-round receivers, says Wyatt.
