AFC East Notes: Dolphins, Jets, Patriots



Dolphins WR Albert Wilson says he expects to line up all over the field in his first year in Miami.

Coach Gase showed me the game plan and all the things he could do with me, and there was no question,” Wilson said, via Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. “Here, I get the opportunity to do everything — play outside, inside, run the ball a little bit. To line up everywhere and play multiple positions and be able to be with a young energized great offensive mind.”


Jets S Jamal Adams tells Bleacher Report everyone wanted to do “the bare minimum” last year.

“Everybody was used to losing,” Adams said. “You can always tell that vibe. I came in, and it was like everybody wanted to do the bare minimum. They didn’t want to go above and beyond. They didn’t want to take that extra step.

“They didn’t want to be uncomfortable, [but] to be great, you have to be uncomfortable. You have to be willing to sacrifice and willing to do the little things. And the team, the organization, just wasn’t doing those things.
