AFC South Recon: Titans And John Abraham Close To Deal

Rookie camps and offseason training activities are right around the corner. But first, let's take a quick look at the goings-on of the AFC South.

Houston Texans

The Texans will be hosting rookie mini-camps and try-outs, May 10-12. Time to shine, Mr. DeAndre Hopkins. We might get our first picture of just how odd Sam Montgomery might be.

Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars once again addressed the possibility of signing a certain free agent quarterback who's a bit of a local hero. I refuse to contribute to Google's search algorithm that pins the two parties together constantly, so I'll refer to the quarterback as Tim T. No, that's too obvious... let's say, T. Tebow. Neither owner Shahid Khan nor general manager Dave Caldwell have given any inkling about wanting to attain T. Tebow's services.

However, the pressure from fans and the media continues. A "powerful" Orlando attorney named John Morgan recently bought this ad detailing why the Jaguars should hire T. Tebow. Check out the video below or read the transcript here.

"Give our guy a shot. I’ll even buy that box your people tried to sell me. Remember this: You can’t TiVo Tebow. Let’s do this Mr. Khan. For the people. Let’s win."

Caldwell is also planning on deploying fifth-round pick Denard Robinson as a back-up running back and return specialist, hoping to give him "10-15 snaps" per game. I imagine they could get quite creative in deploying the former Michigan quarterback.

Tennessee Titans

The Titans are, reportedly, close to reaching a deal with pass-rusher John Abraham, formerly of the Atlanta Falcons. Abraham would be the cherry on top of all the offseason acquisitons for the Titans. Despite being well over 30 years old, Abraham has been nothing but consistent the last three seasons, notching 32.5 sacks in that span.

Offensive tackle David Stewart will likely miss offseason training activities coming up as he recovers from surgery that repaired the broken leg he suffered in Week 12. You might remember Stewart -- whose nickname is "Big Country" -- as the player that some Texans called "dirty" back in October of last year.

Indianapolis Colts

That's about it for this week. I'll be keeping an eye on each team's rookie camps and Organized Team Activities. What do you think of John Abraham possibly joining the division? He's 35 but seemingly has plenty in the tank. Other than Hopkins, what rookie are you most eager to hear about this weekend?
