Actually some interesting tidbits today. Enjoy all your links and stay up to date on the AFC South!

Tennessee Titans

 

Soon-to-be free agent Donnie Nickey is putting himself through a rigorous training program, but is preparing for life after football, just recently opening a restaurant. I'd like to see more players being better prepared for life after football to avoid more of these horror stories of bankruptcy after the NFL that break your heart.

Former Titans coach Jeff Fisher made it to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro.

Randy Moss spoke with youth inmates at a facility in Tennessee, speaking of the bumps in his life and how perseverance is key.

Houston Texans

Fifth round draft choice, safety Shiloh Keo is working out from home but has a chance to step in as a starter quicklywith incumbent starters Eugene Wilson and Bernard Pollard not returning.

The Texans are eagerly waiting for free agency to commence so they can better their team. Texans GM Rick Smith said, "We’re going to be as aggressive as we can be, like we always are." It's funny because in recent memory, I can't think of many free agents the Texans have signed, at least ones that have made an impact on the field. Most of their success and troubles have come through the draft, and trading for Matt Schaub when he was backing-up Michael Vick in Atlanta was certainly one of their better moves in recent memory.\

Indianapolis Colts

Not too much news here today.Former Colts punter Hunter Smith is finding his way after his good times in the NFL. Once again, it's always nice to see players doing well after their football days.
