Day 2 Combine Takeaways: Chuck Pagano, Ryan Grigson Address The Media

Intro: Thursday at the NFL Combine means the time for Chuck Pagano and Ryan Grigson to meet the media.





INDIANAPOLIS – The Colts brass will take to the podium on Thursday afternoon at the NFL Combine.

Along with Chuck Pagano and Ryan Grigson meeting the media, the quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers will also be in the media room.

Wednesday at the Combine was a busy one with some interesting Colts related tidbits coming out of Day One.

Here are updates from Day Two at the Combine:

The Frank Gore talk continued on Day Two of the Combine with new 49ers Head Coach Jim Tomsula taking the podium. Both Tomsula and GM Trent Baalke seem interested in bringing Gore back for an 11th season. So it looks like this decision will fall on Gore if he wants to explore other options in free agency.

"The time is now," was the frequent message from Jaguars Head Coach Gus Bradley entering his third season in Jacksonville. Bradley talked about how the Jaguars started as many as eight rookies last year but now it's time to compete within the AFC South. Unlike the other teams in the AFC South (Tennessee and Houston), Jacksonville has a definite quarterback in second-year signal caller Blake Bortles.

Some Texans tidbits from Head Coach Bill O'Brien and GM Rick Smith today was highlighted by the importance of keeping Andre Johnson in Houston. It sounds like quarterback Ryan Mallett will be the quarterback next season, after he dealt with some injuries in 2014. Jadeveon Clowney, last year's No. 1 pick, is rehabbing and hopes to be ready for the season opener. The Colts did not see Clowney in 2014 due to his knee injury.

Bruce Arians graced the podium on Thursday morning thanking Indianapolis for properly building a city having not to venture outside much in order to move around. Arians shared his thoughts on how massive the Combine has gotten (1,071 credentialed media members, most ever) but he doesn't put too much stock into the "track meet" type drills. Arians had a great point on the quarterback position and something that could hinder Marcus Mariota in the evaluation process, who played in a spread system at Oregon.

Seahawks General Manager John Schneider didn't field too many Russell Wilson questions on Thursday besides this one. Of course, the Wilson talk impacts the Colts in terms of what contract Andrew Luck could be looking at down the road. It doesn't look like either Wilson or Luck will get a new deal this offseason but rest assured those contracts will be coming in a substantial amount, when the time calls for it (2016, likely).
