Jaguars news roundup plus updates from around the AFC South

Jaguars news roundup plus updates from around the AFC South.


O-Zone: A promise of dessert trays
I can’t say I’m all that “excited” about the guys. We don’t know each other all that well – at least not yet. I do think the waiver acquisitions have a good chance to help the Jaguars, particularly Kyle Love. He started 12 games at defensive tackle for New England last year, and has the size and power the Jaguars want from their early-down defensive tackles. The Patriots released him this offseason after he was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, but Love and the Jaguars believe he can play effectively. If he can play as he did the previous two seasons, he can certainly help the Jaguars.

What does Tobais Palmer bring to the Jaguars? - Big Cat Country
If speed is what Caldwell was looking for, he found it in Palmer, who ran the 40-yard dash in 4.31 seconds at NC State's pro day after posting 781 receiving yards and six touchdowns in his final season with the Wolfpack. Palmer's ability to return kicks may be even more impressive. As a senior, he piled up over 1,200 kick return yards and scored twice. His most impressive outing of the season was against Clemson, when he set an ACC record with 496 all-purpose yards.

News updates from around the AFC South:

Can Matt Schaub push the Houston Texans over the top? -
The Houston Texans have been to the AFC Divisional playoffs twice in the last two seasons, failing in each year to make it into the AFC Championship. In 2011, an injury-riddled team led by T.J. Yates beat the Cincinnati Bengals in the Wild Card round before falling in a hard-fought game to the Baltimore Ravens, leading to high expectations in 2012.

Colts Players Have Gained A LOT Of Weight In 2013 - Stampede Blue
When Chapman was drafted, he was listed a 306 pounds. I even wondered if he would be big enough to hold his own as a nose guard at the NFL level. At 340 pounds, he is certainly big enough to play nose tackle. Aubrayo Franklin is listed at 320 pounds. Brandon McKinney is 345. Montori Hughes is 335. Lots a lot o' beef on the defensive line!

Two notable changes in the Titans depth chart - Music City Miracles
So the Titans released an updated depth chart this week and most of it looked like what you would have expected: Chance Warmack starting RG, Velasco still leads the center battle, and ATV is fending off Tommie Campbell for the number two outside CB spot. However, there were two changes that I didn't expect.
