And on my final day in Indianapolis, we've actually seen the sun. Left over defensive linemen are talking this morning, and then we'll see a parade of defensive backs.
The AFC South highlight of the day will be a highlight for all the assembled media and has become a final day tradition. Colts president Bill Polian will talk, offering thoughts on position strength in the draft and hitting, undoubtedly, on a variety of league issues. He'll also be asked about Marvin Harrison.
Onward, to some headlines:
- A look at the tough story of Rice tight end James Casey, from John McClain.
- Jeff Saturday's agent says the Colts aren't talking contract, says Mike Chappell.
- A decision on Marvin Harrison is looming. Chappell takes a look.
- Not every legendary receiver spends his whole career with one team, says Chappell.
- No moves in free agency would make for a better year than last, but with all their holes the Jaguars will have to do at least a bit in free agency, says Michael C. Wright.
- Wright's excellent list of top free agents by position.
- Jim Wyatt looks at risk and reward of going into the salary range Albert Haynesworth is looking for.
- The Titans met Saturday with Haynesworth's agent, Chad Speck, and the team upped its offer, according to Wyatt.
- David Climer asks the big question regarding Haynesworth: Why did the Titans let it come to this?
- A look at USC linebacker Clay Matthews, nephew of Oilers/Titans legend Bruce Matthews, from Wyatt.
- Would Evander "Ziggy" Hood be a good option for the Titans if they lose Albert Haynesworth and need to add depth at defensive tackle? Terry McCormick ponders.
