Bills

Dolphins

  • ESPN’s John Keim mentions the Dolphins as a potential trade candidate for Redskins LT Trent Williams
  • Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald points out the Dolphins could be incredibly well-positioned again in 2021 if the salary cap rises as expected, with a projected $60-$79 million in cap space. 
  • Dolphins C Ted Karras said he chose Miami over a couple of other offers in part because of HC Brian Flores.
  • Dolphins LB Elandon Roberts‘ one-year, $2 million deal includes a $1 million signing bonus and $1 million base salary. (Aaron Wilson)
  • Dolphins RB Jordan Howard says he’s “back 100” from the shoulder injury that limited him in 2019 with the Eagles. (Adam Beasley)
  • Dolphins DE Emmanuel Ogbah said he was cleared from his torn pectoral injury to do on-field workouts several weeks ago. (Cameron Wolfe)
  • Dolphins LB Kyle Van Noy said he’ll play the same role in Miami that he did for the Patriots: “I don’t consider myself having a position. I’m just a football player.” (Wolfe)

Jets

  • ESPN’s John Keim mentions the Jets as a potential trade candidate for Redskins LT Trent Williams
  • On WFAN, former QB Boomer Esiason claimed the Jets offered WR Robby Anderson a four-year, $40 million deal, which he turned down for a two-year, $20 million offer from the Panthers. 
  • Anderson tweeted a response calling Esiason’s claim false but later deleted his tweet: “False news y’all need to better jobs reporting and putting out fake news too ppl.” (Alex Smith)
  • Esiason stood by his report: “I have a great source. My source is always accurate. I’m not backing off anything that I said.” (WFAN)
  • Esiason said the opportunity for Anderson to play for his former head coach at Temple, Panthers HC Matt Rhule, was too much for Anderson to turn down: “The one thing that I said yesterday that in my eyes remains very true [is] that Robby decided to play for his old Temple coach, Matt Rhule. They have that new offensive coordinator down there, [Joe Brady]. He signed a two-year deal to bet on himself to get back to free agency. I don’t want to say it’s a gutsy move; I think it’s a confident move by Robby Anderson.”

Patriots

  • Former Patriots LB Jamie Collins said he still can’t believe Tom Brady left New England: “Oh, man. I still don’t believe it. I hope he gets everybody he needs and deserves cause he definitely deserves it. It don’t feel real, man. I just can’t wait to see it. I need to see it on Sunday.” (Dave Birkett)
