Lawrence’s signing bonus, Texans still pay (a lot) for Cunningham

It’s that time of the week again when we take a trip through the AFC South to check out the Tennessee Titans division rivals the Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts and Jacksonville Jaguars.

As was the case with the Titans, we learned the training camp start dates from the Texans, Colts and Jaguars.

In Indianapolis: There’s a lot of hype for sophomore pass rusher Kwity Paye. Also, a Colts writer believes Derrick Henry is the best running back the Colts will face in 2022 — and he’s right.

In Jacksonville: There was some controversy surrounding Jaguar quarterback Trevor Lawrence’s signing bonus, but that has since been clarified. Jacksonville is also getting closer to building its new headquarters and practice facility.

In Houston: Offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton wants to get more out of the run game in 2022, and the Texans are still paying a pretty penny for linebacker Zach Cunningham, who is now in Nashville.

We cover those stories and more in our latest AFC South news roundup.
