AFC East Notes: Bills, Dolphins, Jets, Patriots

     

Bills

Dolphins

  • According to ESPN’s Cameron Wolfe, the Dolphins will at least do a price check on pending Chargers free-agent RB Melvin Gordon. Wolfe adds Gordon would have an interest in Miami. 
  • Some other options in free agency include Texans RB Lamar Miller, Eagles RB Jordan Howard and Texans RB Carlos Hyde
  • Wolfe adds Miami is almost certain to draft a running back this year as well. 
  • Wolfe notes Bills RB Frank Gore is open to returning to Miami in a change-of-pace/mentorship role. 
  • Wolfe brings up the possibility of the Dolphins potentially eating the salary of a running back like the Rams’ Todd Gurley or the Cardinals’ David Johnson to both add a player and a pick in a trade. 
  • Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald believes that Dolphins WR DeVante Parker will likely develop into the team’s No.1 receiver.
  • Jackson also notes that WR Preston Williams, who is recovering from ACL surgery, has a good chance to become a starter for the team.
  • While Jackson says that WR Albert Wilson would likely need to take a pay cut to return next season, other receivers such as Allen Hurns, Jakeem Grant, and Isaiah Ford have all earned the chance to compete for roster spots in 2020.
  • The Dolphins promoted QC coach Josh Grizzard to WR coach. (Jackson)

Jets

  • The Athletic’s Connor Hughes confirms he expects the Jets to be in the final running for Panthers CB James Bradberry
  • Jets WR Robby Anderson said he is open to returning to the team in 2020, and the team is reportedly pushing to keep him, but that at the end of the day it’s still a business: “l think they definitely want me back. I truly do want to be back with the Jets. I love Sam (Darnold). I love my teammates, Jamal (Adams) and all those guys. I feel like there’s unfinished business there that I’ve been trying to get done since I got there. I would hope to finish out the mission, all in all, but it’s a business.”‬ (Rich Cimini)
  • NBC Sports’ J.P. Finlay notes that the Jets have the ability to offer two third-round picks in a trade for Redskins LT Trent Williams.
  • The Jets have a private workout scheduled with Kansas OL Hakeem Adeniji. (Tony Pauline)
