AFC East Notes: Bills, Dolphins, Jets, Patriots



The Dolphins brought in some notable defensive ends for tryouts this week in Kony Ealy and Robert Ayers, but elected to promote Jonathan Woodard from the practice squad instead.

Regarding the decision, Dolphins DC Matt Burke said they felt Woodard had earned the opportunity to on the active roster.

“I thought he had a very successful preseason, had some production,” Burke said, via Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. “We felt he had familiarity with the system. Since he’s been in the building, he’s done everything right. He’s earned that opportunity to have a shot.
