AFC SOUTH Houston Texans Off-season newsmakers: Acquired a good defensive end in Antonio Smith and linebacker in Cato June, and a bad backup quarterback in Dan Orlovsky, while trading serviceable backup QB Sage Rosenfels.
Needs: More defense.
The buzz: The Texans will serve themselves just fine by addressing any of the lines on defense.
Indianapolis Colts Offseason newsmakers: Tony Dungy finally made good on his retirement, replaced by loyal assistant Jim Caldwell. The Colts waived future Hall of Fame WR Marvin Harrison.
Needs: DT and WR.
The buzz: The Colts ranked next-to-last against the run last season and were exposed in the playoff loss at San Diego.
Jacksonville Jaguars Offseason newsmakers: The Jags said goodbye to some team stalwarts, most notably RB Fred Taylor. MLB Mike Peterson had a falling out with Coach Jack Del Rio last season and was deemed expendable.
Needs: WR and DT.
The buzz: Armed with a top-10 selection, the Jags probably will be looking to give QB David Garrard another receiver.
Tennessee Titans Offseason newsmakers: Veteran QB Kerry Collins, 36, was re-signed, meaning Vince Young will be fighting to regain his starting spot again. WR Nate Washington will help. DE Jovan Haye was brought in to soften the defection of Albert Haynesworth.
Needs: WR and CB.
The buzz: One of the league's least explosive passing attacks (27th overall) needs more than Washington (a No. 3 with the Steelers) can provide. And CB Cortland Finnegan could use some help on the other side.
