Houston Texans

At 23rd, Matt Schaub is only three slots ahead of Jake Locker in these quarterback rankings from Will Brinson of CBS Sports.

The Texans officially added running back Deji Karim and center Tyler Horn, says Tania Ganguli of the Houston Chronicle.

The Texans have the 10th best front office in the NFL, says Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.

Indianapolis Colts

Chuck Pagano participated in a conference call with season-ticket holders and Mike Chappell from the Indianapolis Star has highlights. He said he thinks fifth-round nose tackle Montori Hughes is “going to be special.”

Chappell doesn’t think Dwight Freeney would be a good fit in San Diego.

Andrew Luck and some teammates visited the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, says Chris Widlic of

Jacksonville Jaguars

Gus Bradley is really pleased with what he’s seen from longtime center Brad Meester so far, says Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union.

Undrafted receiver Tobais Palmer has emerged already as a player to watch for the Jaguars, says Ryan O’Halloran of the Times-Union.

Bradley was happy with the end of Week 1 of OTAs, says John Oehser of

Tennessee Titans

The Titans added a couple of veteran free agents, says John Glennon of The Tennessean. Greg Jones has middle linebacker experience and should provide a cushion behind often-injured Colin McCarthy. Running back Alvester Alexander will be fourth on the depth chart at best.

Kevin Walter is proud of the work ethic he brings to the Titans receiving corps, he said in this video with Amie Wells of Receivers coach Shaun Jefferson told rookie Justin Hunter to emulate Walter.
Titans offensive line coach Bruce Matthews always said he’d recuse himself on roster decisions involving his son, Tennessee interior offensive lineman Kevin Matthews.

It would have cost the Titans a tender of at least $1.323 million to retain his rights. With or without the input of Bruce Matthews, the Hall of Fame lineman, the Titans didn’t tender Kevin Matthews or interior offensive lineman Kyle DeVan.

Kevin Matthews and DeVan will become unrestricted free agents Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET. At that point the Titans could sign them to deals at one-year base minimum salary. The third-year base salary minimum is $630,000.

It’s time, though, for the Titans to be finished with Matthews, the project who came out of Texas A&M in 2010.

The interior offensive line is expected to be revamped with two new starting guards. As they are brought in, via free agency and/or the draft, the team is likely to move on from two expensive veterans, Steve Hutchinson and Eugene Amano.

Leroy Harris and Deuce Lutui become unrestricted free agents Tuesday.

Tyler Horn was on the practice squad at the end of last season and Chris DeGeare was on the practice squad injured list.

The Titans now have Mitch Petrus and Kasey Studdard as their interior depth.

So Tennessee doesn't need only a couple starting guards. It needs a candidate or two to compete with Petrus and Studdard for backup roles as well.
