AFC South links: Jags prepared to strike
By ESPN.com staff
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports speculates about how teams will approach the franchise tag this offseason. Houston and Tennessee fall into the "Might use it" category.
Nick Scurfield continues the team website's review of the season with a look at Arian Foster and the running backs.
Kevin Bowen of the team's website takes a closer look at the 19 tight ends invited to this year’s NFL combine.
NFL.com columnist Adam Schein lists Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney and backup quarterback Drew Stanton among this year's underrated free agents.
New GM Dave Caldwell says preparation is the key to the offseason, writes John Oehser of the team's website. Caldwell: “The important thing is for us to be prepared, and when opportunity presents itself, we’re ready to strike on that. We may not be overly active chasing (players), but we’re going to be active looking for the right opportunities, whether that’s in the draft or free agency.”
Kentucky guard Larry Warford, 6-foot-3, 330 pounds, might be a good fit for the Titans, writes John Glennon of the Tennessean. According to some projections, Warford could be a first-round pick after a strong showing at the Senior Bowl last month. Said Lake Dawson, vice president of player personnel for the Titans: “He’s a big, powerful man, and he’ll be intriguing not only to the Titans, but to the other 31 teams."
