AFC East Notes: Dolphins, Jets, Patriots

Dolphins

Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry tells Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald that he isn’t mad or bothered that other teammates have received extensions.

“It’s my faith that God has a plan for my life, that if I continue to use his platform to do the things he allows me to do, everything else will be added to me,” Landry said. “I know it’s a business and I know it sounds crazy to a lot of people, but at the same time, I have extreme confidence to know I’m going to get the job done no matter where I’m at, no matter what position I’m in. Everything else will take care of itself.”

Landry is well aware of how the negotiation process works, but he still has yet to receive an offer from the Dolphins.

“[T}he number I may want may not be the number the team is willing to give me. It’s about finding that negotiating price that works for both parties,” Landry said. “Unfortunately, I haven’t gotten offers. But when the process starts, I want nothing less than what I deserve.”

As for being franchised in 2018, Landry says he has no issues playing out the year under the tag.

“That’s fine,” Landry said. “Because the following year after, that’s where we’ve got to start.”

Jets

  • Rich Cimini reports that the Jets are being considered for one of the international games in London next year.
  • This makes sense considering that Jets owner Woody Johnson is now the U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom.
  • Cimini adds that there’s no word whether the Jets would lose a home game to play in London.

Patriots

  • Mike Reiss of ESPN considers the Patriots recent decision to sign QB Taylor Heinicke to their practice squad to be notable for a few reasons.
  • The Patriots elected to trade Jacoby Brissett to the Colts a few weeks ago, which means Heinicke now takes over as the team’s No. 3 option at the position behind Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo.
  • Reiss points out that the Patriots haven’t carried a quarterback on their practice squad in 2014 and 2015, which could be viewed as an indication they view Heinicke as someone they may want to develop.
  • According to Reiss, Patriots WR Julian Edelman still has yet to undergo surgery on his knee for a torn ACL, but the surgery is considered imminent.
