Free Agent Fits For The AFC South

on

With only one of four teams in the AFC South on track to make the playoffs, there is bound to be moves made in 2015 fee agency. Let’s take a look at some players that could be on the move this offseason.

 

Houston Texans

  • Antonio Cromartie (CB) – The Texans’ have the 28th worst pass defense. Kareem Jackson, their number one cornerback, is a free agent. With Clowney and Watt putting pressure on the quarterback next year, they will need a good secondary. Cromartie is a good starting piece.
  • Mark Sanchez (QB) – With Arian Foster, Andre Johnson, DeAndre Hopkins and even J.J. Watt, the Texans’ have a strong offensive core, they’re just lacking at the quarterback position. Sanchez is playing well with the Eagles and could greatly benefit Houston.

Tennessee Titans

  • Knowshon Moreno (RB) – Ever since Chris Johnson’s 2012 season, the running game for the Titans has been weak. They gave Bishop Sankey a chance this year and averaged just 3.9 YPC. Coming off a torn ACL, they could get Moreno cheap. He’ll add a dynamic that the Titans have been lacking.
  • Jerry Hughes (DE) – Hughes has been dominate since leaving the Colts. In two seasons with the Bills, Hughes has picked up 19.5 sacks thus far. A dominant pass-rusher lining up opposite Jurrell Casey (5.0 sacks) would put tons of pressure on the opposing quarterback.

Jacksonville Jaguars

  • Bryan Bulaga (OT) – The Jaguars have given up 50 sacks, by far the most in the NFL. Bulaga will provide protection on the offensive line and give Bortles more time to create.
  • Brandon Flowers (CB) – The Jaguars have just five interceptions this year, tied for 31st most in the league. Flowers has three on his own this year and will give the Jaguars an upgrade over Demetrius McCray and Jeremy Harris.

Indianapolis Colts

  • Davin Joseph (G) – It’s not that the Colts’ running backs are bad, it’s that they aren’t getting the holes they need from the offensive line. Joseph will help improve the running game as well as protect Andrew Luck.
  • B.J. Raji (DE) – Raji would provide a huge upgrade over Josh Chapman, who has just 13 combined tackled and zero sacks in twelve games. With Robert Mathis, Cory Redding, and Ricky Jean Francois, this could be a dominate run-stop defense.
