AFC East Notes: Bills, Dolphins, Jets, Patriots


  • Per WGR 550’s Sal Capaccio, Bills GM Brandon Beane doesn’t anticipate Buffalo trying to recoup the first-round pick it traded away for WR Stefon Diggs: “I don’t anticipate us at all trying to get back up into the first round. Not something I’m even contemplating right now.”
  • Beane revealed he’s had discussions regarding potential extensions with the agent for Bills OT Dion Dawkins and LB Matt Milano, including a potential timeline, but didn’t offer any more specifics. (Capaccio)
  • New Bills OL Evan Boehm should offer some flexibility for Buffalo, per Beane: “(OL coach) Bobby Johnson was around him in Indianapolis, and spoke highly of him.” (Capaccio)



  • Ralph Vacchiano reports that “several sources” believe the Jets prefer Georgia LT Andrew Thomas and Alabama OT Jedrick Wills to Louisville’s Mekhi Becton.
  • Vacchiano points out that the Jets could have some benefit by trading down from No. 11 for an offensive tackle if they are not sold on Becton, but they would likely have to stay in the top-15 to land a player like USC’s Austin Jackson. 
  • Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News confirms the Jets are unlikely to keep RB Le’Veon Bell through 2021. 
  • Mehta adds so far there’s no sense of urgency to negotiations with S Jamal Adams.
  • NC State DT Larrell Murchison said he has had virtual pre-draft meetings with the Jets. (Daniel Valente)
  • Florida EDGE Jonathan Greenard had virtual pre-draft meetings with the Jets. (Melo)
  • TCU CB Jeff Gladney has had a virtual pre-draft meeting with the Jets. (Justin Melo)
