  • Colts' Ronnie Harrison: Versatile contributor in 2023

    Harrison tallied 20 tackles (11 solo), 1.0 sacks, two passes defensed, two interceptions and one touchdown across seven regular-season games in 2023.

    Harrison spent the first 11 weeks of the 2023 season on Indianapolis' practice squad, and shortly after being called up to the active roster he was asked to switch positions to middle linebacker following the release of Shaquille Leonard. Harrison is now set to hit free agency this offseason, and his ability to contribute at both safety and linebacker could help his odds of inking a new contract quickly.

  • Segun Olubi LB | IND

    Colts' Segun Olubi: Makes 26 tackles in 2023

    Olubi notched 26 tackles (20 solo), one pass defensed, one interception and one fumble recovery across 15 regular-season games with the Colts in 2023.

    Olubi missed two games due to a hip injury in 2023, and when healthy handled mostly a special-teams role for Indianapolis. He did start one game, Week 9 versus Carolina, and finished with six tackles (four solo), one pass breakup and one INT. Olubi is set to become an exclusive-rights free agent this offseason.

  • Dayo Odeyingbo DE | IND

    Colts' Dayo Odeyingbo: Manages 8.0 sacks in 2023

    Odeyingbo logged 38 tackles (22 solo), 8.0 sacks, two pass breakups, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries across 17 regular-season games with the Colts in 2023.

    Odeyingbo, a 2021 second-round pick, put together career-high numbers across the board in 2023. He's begun to find success as a key rotational pass rusher in Indianapolis' defensive scheme, and in 2024 Odeyingbo's numbers could uptick again if he's able to more consistently handle above 50 percent of defensive snaps.

  • Nick Cross DB | IND

    Colts' Nick Cross: Impresses in Year 2

    Cross racked up 39 tackles (24 solo), two pass breakups and one interception across 17 regular-season games with the Colts in 2023.

    Cross began his sophomore season playing mostly on special teams, but he increased his role on defense after Indianapolis' bye in Week 11, then stepped into a starting role for the final three games of the season due to an injury to Julian Blackmon (shoulder). Blackmon is now slated for free agency, so there's a possible path for Cross to take on a larger defensive role during the 2024 campaign, especially considering that he performed solidly in limited action in 2023.

  • Andre Cisco FS | JAC

    Jaguars' Andre Cisco: Closes with 62 tackles

    Cisco finished the 2023 regular season with 62 tackles (42 solo), a half-sack, four interceptions and a forced fumble in 15 games.

    Cisco operated as Jacksonville's starting free safety for the second straight season, though he did sit out two games due to a hamstring and groin injury. The 23-year-old is entering the last year of his rookie contract and should have the same role for Jacksonville in 2024, depending on the organization's offseason additions.

  • Tank Dell WR | HOU

    Texans' Tank Dell: Expects to participate in OTAs

    Dell (fibula) noted earlier this month that he expects to join his teammates when the Texans take the field for OTAs this spring, Aaron Wilson, KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Per the report, Dell, who is reportedly making a speedy recovery from a broken fibula he sustained Dec. 3 against the Broncos, is expected to be a full participant in the Texans' offseason conditioning program. Beyond that, the 2023 third-rounder indicates he hopes to "hit the ground running" once Houston's OTAs commence this spring. At that stage, however, it remains to be seen how close to 100 percent Dell will be, but barring any setbacks, the 24-year-old wide receiver should be good to go ahead of Week 1, at which point he'll profile as one of QB C.J. Stroud's primary passing targets this coming season.

  • Josh Allen LB | JAC

    Jaguars' Josh Allen: Racks up 17.5 sacks

    Allen finished the 2023 regular season with 66 tackles (43 solo), 17.5 sacks, one interception and two forced fumbles in 17 games.

    The 2019 first-round pick approached the campaign with 17 combined sacks across the previous four years, but he eclipsed that total last season as he tied for second in the NFL with 17.5. It was a contract year for Allen, and the 26-year-old is poised for a significant payday this offseason, though he may have to settle for the franchise tag if he and the Jaguars are unable to agree on a long-term deal.

  • Jaguars' Rayshawn Jenkins: Another 100-tackle campaign

    Jenkins played in all 17 games during the 2023 regular season and totaled 101 tackles (66 tackles) one sack, nine passes defensed and two interceptions.

    It's the second straight triple-digit tackle effort for the 30-year-old safety, good for third on the team. Jenkins is entering the final season of the four-year, $35 million contract he signed with Jacksonville in 2021 and is poised for another campaign at strong safety.

  • Tank Dell WR | HOU

    Texans' Tank Dell: Making progress

    Dell (lower leg) expects to return to the field when the Texans hold their first Organized Team Activities this spring, Michael Shapiro of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Prior to suffering a season-ending fibula injury in Week 13 last season, Dell recorded 47 catches on 75 targets for 709 yards and seven touchdowns in 11 games, including three 100-yard performances. Looking ahead, the 2023 third-rounder -- whose recovery is reportedly on track -- is poised to reclaim a key role alongside fellow WR Nico Collins in Houston's C.J. Stroud-helmed passing offense.

  • Theo Jackson DB | MIN

    Vikings' Theo Jackson: Re-signs with Minnesota

    The Vikings re-signed Jackson (toe) on Wednesday.

    Jackson was set to be an exclusive rights free agent this offseason, but he quickly came to terms on a new deal with the Vikings to keep him in the fold for 2024. The 2022 sixth-round pick played in 15 games for Minnesota last season, logging 126 snaps on defense and another 260 on special teams and finishing with 21 tackles (14 solo) and one interception. He missed the final two games of 2023 with a toe injury, but the health concern doesn't look to be anything that will threaten his availability for training camp.
