An evening roundup of headlines and news pertaining to the AFC South:
- Cedric Benson is no longer an option for the Texans after re-signing in Cincinnati.
- Titans free agent quarterback Chris Simms is heading to Denver on Wednesday and also is drawing interest from Detroit, according to Terry McCormick. I'm surprised Simms' name hasn't surfaced until now.
- The Jaguars have signed defensive end James Wyche, a seventh-round pick from 2006, who has missed the past two seasons with injuries. Wyche, 6-foot-5 and 275 pounds, missed the entire 2008 season with a knee injury suffered in the preseason, and was placed on injured reserve in 2007 after suffering a groin injury in the final preseason game against Washington. He spent the first 10 weeks of the 2007 season on the practice squad as a rookie before being activated to the 53-man roster on Nov. 15.
- Philip B. Wilson checked in with a blog entry on some of the Colts' offseason issues.
