Texans: (OTAs) May 21-22, May 24, May 29-31, June 4-7; (minicamp) June 12-14
Following by far the greatest season in team history, the Texans now have to deal with something they're unused to: being expected to win the division, playoff games, and even the AFC Championship.
Considering how far they got without Matt Schaub, Mario Williams, or a healthy Andre Johnson, they should handle the pressure well.
Titans: (OTAs) May 30-June 1, June 5-7, June 11-12, June 14-15; (minicamp) June 19-21
Despite their great season and near playoff berth, at least one part of the Titans 2011 season had to be an absolute embarrassment to head coach Mike Munchak: finishing 31st in rushing. Expect the former perennial All-Pro guard to improve drastically upon that.
Jaguars: (OTAs) May 15-17, May 22-24, May 29-June 1; (minicamp) June 12-14
Blaine Gabbert fell behind some of his rookie quarterback contemporaries (Cam Newton, Andy Dalton, even T.J. Yates) last year, but now that the Jags added Laurent Robinson and Justin Blackmon, he should show considerable improvement from Year 1 to Year 2.
He'd better or they'll have to (again) run Maurice Jones-Drew into the ground, thus continuing to push the envelope of his long-term viability.
Colts: (OTAs) May 15-17, May 22-24, June 4-7; (minicamp) June 12-14
Forget about all the offensive rookie talent coming in for a minute and focus on the defensive side of the ball.
Yes, they still have Robert Mathis and Dwight Freeney, but Chuck Pagano can stock up all the former Ravens he wants (Brandon McKinney, Cory Redding, Tom Zbikowski) it doesn't Indy mean will have anything that even resembles that terrific Baltimore defense.
