Houston Texans

The Texans hope to avoid the worst-case defection scenario, says John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. (News in here: Tight end Joel Dreessen is headed to New Orleans for a visit. Right guard Mike Brisiel is visiting Oakland.)

Recently cut fullback Lawrence Vickers was not out of work long, quickly signing with Dallas, says McClain.

Indianapolis Colts

It’s a three-year, $10.5 million contract for defensive end Cory Redding, a building block for the Colts, says Phil Richards. Says Redding: “I believe we can get this thing turned right back around and just keep winning."

Reggie Wayne: Colt for life. Phillip B. Wilson on Reggie Wayne’s decision to re-sign with Indianapolis.

Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars landed their first two outside additions in Laurent Robinson and Chad Henne, says Tania Ganguli.

Why a multi-year deal for reserve linebacker Russell Allen makes sense for Jacksonville, from Ganguli.

Tennessee Titans

Was it a long hello, or will Peyton Manning be putting down roots again in Tennessee? John Glennon of The Tennessean reports on Manning’s visit to the Titans headquarters.

Manning’s gut could push him to decide on the Titans, says David Climer of The Tennessean.

The Titans are also working on their offensive line, and hosted free-agent Scott Wells, says Glennon.
