Earlier today, we learned that the Titans are going to pick up Kendall Wright‘s fifth-year option.

- Georgia running back Todd Gurley was one of the 30 pre-draft visit for the Titans, Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean tweets. Recently, sources from five different teams told Albert Breer of NFL.com that Gurley has a great shot to be ready by Week 1 of the NFL season. The Rams are said to be among the teams that are fond of him and it has been speculated that they could trade back from No. 10 with an eye on grabbing him.
- Wyatt wouldn’t be surprised if the Titans have a change in mindset regarding Marcus Mariota and select him at No. 2 if he’s available. While sticking with Zach Mettenberger and building around him is an option, the Titans may have no choice but to take Mariota if they view him as a franchise quarterback. Wyatt also feels that the Titans should keep their ears open on a Philip Rivers trade in the event that the Chargers would also be willing to part with the No. 17 selection.
- Colts GM Ryan Grigson is building to win both now and later, Mike Chappell of FOX 59 writes. This offseason, the Colts invested heavily in four players that are undoubtedly past their primes: Andre Johnson, Frank Gore, Trent Cole, and Todd Herremans. Meanwhile, most of the team’s core – including stars Andrew Luck and T.Y. Hilton – are youngsters still building towards their primes. The Colts will look to infuse even more young talent in the upcoming draft.
