David Thornton spent his career as a linebacker with the Indianapolos Colts and Tennessee Titans. He was recently hired by the Colts' new regime as their new player development coordinator. Phillip B. Wilson of the Star looks at Thornton's ability to make frinds and impact people.
The Jaguars added veteran receiver Lee Evans with a one-year deal, says Tania Ganguli of the Jacksonville Times-Union.
