There’s a lot of cousin-kissing in the AFC South. It’s a division where not only did one franchise leave one city for another, but the players and coaches do as well. Mike Vrabel went from Houston Tennessee, Donte Moncrief went from Indianapolis to Jacksonville, A.J. Bouye went from Houston to Jacksonville, and now Aaron Colvin has moved from Jacksonville to Houston.
That last departure has Jalen Ramsey sad. He is going to miss Colvin. Ow. It’s really going to hurt.
“That’s going to hurt us. We’re going to have to try to figure out a way to mend that hole just a little bit. But it’s definitely going to hurt us. It’s going to hurt us that he went to one of our rival teams.”
It’s a business, man. Colvin went to the team who can and did pay him more than the Jaguars were going to be able to. Replacing Colvin in the slot for Jacksonville will be DJ Hayden, the former University of Houston defensive back taken in the first round by Oakland in the 2013 NFL Draft and moved to Detriot for a season, where he had a surprisingly strong campaign. Hayden will be in Jacksonville for three years ($19 million) after joining the best pass defense in football.
