AFC Notes: Bills, Browns, Jets

Bills

Bills RB LeSean McCoy says he still has “more to prove” as he enters his thirties.

“I have more to prove,” he said, via PennLive.com. “It’s just like, ‘How long can he do it? How long can he keep being productive?’ And that drives me. It really does.”

McCoy added that he’s still hoping to lose some more weight before the start of training camp and he has “tightened up” his diet.

Browns

Browns OL coach Bob Wylie explained that they experimented with the idea of playing Joel Bitonio and Chris Hubbard at left tackle this offseason.

“We put Joel and Chris [Hubbard] over there for a few snaps because this is the time to do it,” Wylie said, via Dan Labbe of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “It’s the time to experiment. Once you get into camp you get more zeroed in on the guys who will actually play.”

Bitonio added that he’s open to doing what he can to help the team, but it sounds like they prefer other options at left tackle.

“Anything they need I’m willing to give a try, but I think right now the plan is to find a guy to play left tackle, and I’m going to stick right at left guard,” Bitonio said.

Jets

The Jets traded a 2019 seventh-round pick for DL Henry Anderson a few months ago.

According to Jets DL coach Robert Nunn, Anderson has quickly established himself as a leader in the team’s locker room.

“He’s already established himself as a leader in that room,” Nunn said of Anderson, via the New York Daily News. “I’m excited about where he is. Really has had an outstanding offseason. A solid player. He shows up and does something each day.”

Anderson will get an opportunity to try to replace Muhammad Wilkerson at defensive end before testing the free agent market next year.

We wanted a veteran guy on the inside to help out at least on the four-down packages and not just rely on a rookie going in that way,” Jets HC Bowles said. “We figured he was better than most of the guys we would have taken at that pick. So, we went ahead and made the trade.
