AFC Notes: Bills, Dolphins, Texans, Titans



  • Joel Corry notes that the Bills will pick up $2,282,169 of salary cap relief from CB Vontae Davis‘ surprising decision to retire during Week 2’s game.
  • When asked about Davis, Bills HC Sean McDermott said: “Vontae’s actions spoke loud and clear. It’s not going to be a distraction for us because we’re focused on improving and moving forward as a football team.”
  • McDermott added: “I have not been in touch with Vontae today. His actions were loud and clear. My focus is on my team right now.” (Joe Buscaglia)
  • Ian Rapoport reports that the Bills were granted a roster exemption for Davis.
  • Mike Rodak reports that Bills CB Phillip Gaines dislocated his elbow during Sunday’s game, but there is hope that with treatment, he will be able to play in Week 3 against the Vikings.


  • Dolphins HC Adam Gase said Monday that WR DeVante Parker was healthy enough to play in Week 2’s game against the Jets. (Cameron Wolfe)
  • However, Gase explained that there were “a lot of moving parts” and they ultimately decided to buy Parker anyone week and keep him inactive on Sunday.


Despite the team’s 0-2 start, Texans QB Deshaun Watson believes they’re fine and there’s no reason to panic.

“We’re fine,” Watson said, via Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. “If you’re one of the guys, one of the people, one of the fans hitting the panic button, then that’s on y’all. Don’t hop on the train later on down the season. There’s no point in panicking. I know I’m not going to panic especially with what I came from in my childhood. So, it comes with it. I’ve taken losses before. You take it on the chin.”


  • On Monday, Titans HC Mike Vrabel told reporters that Marcus Mariota‘s status for Week 3 is the same as it was last week. (Jim Wyatt)
  • Vrabel added that Mariota was happy for the team and understands they have to play whoever gives them the best chance to win. (Jim Wyatt)
