AFC Notes: Browns, Dolphins, Patriots


New Browns WR Jarvis Landry says that his team has “a lot better” quarterbacks than the ones he worked with as a Dolphin.

I think [Browns play-caller] Todd [Haley] is going to give me the opportunities I need to … not show off my talents, but the things that I can do,” Landry said, via “I believe that I’m a complete receiver all-around.”

Landry wasn’t finished, saying: “… The quarterback play is so important, which has got me that much more excited about Tyrod [Taylor] and (first-rounder Baker Mayfield) and the way that they’re throwing the ball out here, it makes me that much more excited. It’s a lot better than what I had in Miami. I’m excited about that.”


New Dolphins DE Robert Quinn has been drawing rave reviews in OTAs up to this point.

“He’s a unique athlete,” Dolphins DC Matt Burke said of Quinn, via Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post. “He bends probably as good as anybody I’ve ever been around. It’s weird to watch sometimes, to be honest with you. He comes off the corner and sometimes you think he’s actually rushing too high and gets past the quarterback, then he just turns his foot and plants it and bends it. His knee is about two feet off the ground and he can really hug it.  It’s pretty fun.”


Patriots LB Dont’a Hightower says that the defense should be more aggressive under Brian Foles.

“He’s not backing down [and will] be more aggressive,” Hightower said, via Mike Reiss of ESPN. “You could see it. I think this was probably our best practice we’ve had and we want to continue to build on that.”

“With the playcalling we’ve gotten so far, I definitely feel like we’re going to be more aggressive. Things are a little bit more simple, but it’s still a little bit different, and guys are learning bits and pieces of the defense. But so far, so good. A lot of guys that have come in from different organizations, like [Adrian Clayborn], he’s picked it up and we’re able to run with it and we’re able to play a lot faster.”
