RTC: Costly Jaguars no longer around
By Paul Kuharsky
Reading the coverage ...
Compensatory picks are supposed to be announced today. Stay tuned.
The Texans face a full agenda at the NFL’s owners meetings in Phoenix says John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.
Andre Johnson thinks Chad Johnson will get another opportunity and return to old form, he told CSN Houston. (Video.) Chad Johnson said he’d love to be a Texan but is in no position to be picky.
To which I say: I can't imagine the Texans deciding they were interested in the sideshow Chad Johnson can bring, and I expect them to draft a receiver with one of their top picks.
If Ed Reed doesn’t happen, Ryan Cook of Toro Times thinks we could see the Texans turn to Nnamdi Asomugha.
The wide receiver Colts owner Jim Irsay is tweeting about the team pursuing is not New York Giants restricted free agent Victor Cruz, writes Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star.
To which I say: Maybe they will pull a rabbit out of a hat, but it seems like Irsay is guilty, again, of overhyping a possible move.
Considering some wide receiver possibilities with Brad Wells of Stampede Blue. How many of them would you rate as franchise altering?
Reasons to feel good about the signing of Patriots free-agent guard Donald Thomas, from Olly Dawes of Colts Authority.
The Jaguars' most expensive player in 2013 is not on the roster, says Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union. That receiver Laurent Robinson holes that distinction shows how much big contracts have hurt Jacksonville.
To which I say: Absorbing $24 million of cap money this season will help the Jaguars in future years.
Nine Jaguars made $100,000 or more through the NFL’s performance-based pay enhancement, says Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.
Considering Dion Jordan as a fit for the Jaguars at No. 2 with Alfie Crow of Big Cat Country.
In Sammie Hill, the Titans believe they’ve got a pocket-collapsing run-defender who will make things better for the pass-rushers on the outside, says John Glennon of The Tennessean.
New Titans tight end Delanie Walker went from the high of playing in the Super Bowl to the low of losing his aunt and uncle in a horrific accident near New Orleans just hours after the game, writes Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.
Safety Bernard Pollard, cut by the Ravens in an apparent cap savings move, has visited the Titans, says John Glennon of The Tennessean.
Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun says the Titans have an interest in Elvis Dumervil.
To which I say: So far there hasn’t been much noise to suggest the Titans are real serious, but he’d be quite an addition.
