AFC East Notes: Bills, Dolphins, Jets, Patriots



The Bills are in wait-and-see-mode with undrafted rookie LB Tyrel Dodson, who was arrested on domestic violence-related charges in May

“It’s unfortunate. Serious situation, and we take it very seriously,” Bills HC Sean McDermott said via ESPN’s Mike Rodak. “We’ve communicated with him. It’s an open case at this point. We have to let it go through the court process and we’ll do our best to stay on top of it from our end.”


  • Dolphins S Reshad Jones would like to stay in Miami, per Joe Schad.
  • In response to potentially not starting, Jones says he’s still one of the better safeties in the league: “I don’t have to prove nothing to nobody. I’m one of the best safeties in this league.” (Schad)
  • Jones said as long as he’s still on the Dolphins, he can tune out the trade talk: “I’m still one of the best safeties in this league and whatever happens, happens. I control what I control. I’m here, I love this city, I love the fans. I’d love to be a part of the Dolphins organization.” (Armando Salguero)
  • The Dolphins are taking a wait-and-see-approach for extensions for players like RB Kenyan Drake and WR Jakeem Grant. (Barry Jackson)
  • The Dolphins are interested in moving on an extension for OT Laremy Tunsil, though. 


  • Per SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano, Jets HC Adam Gase says they’re waiting on CEO Christopher Johnson to make a decision on the new general manager: “We’ll keep huddling up and see where we are with that until Christopher (Johnson) is ready to make a decision.”
  • Gase says the Jets will manage RB Le’Veon Bell‘s workload at minicamp since he hasn’t been at OTA’s: “We’ll be smart since he hasn’t been here.” (Kimberley Martin)
  • Bell said he wasn’t bothered by reports that Gase thought the Jets overpaid him: “We talk all the time,” Bell said. “Our relationship is great.” (Vacchiano)
  • Bell plans to return to Florida to work out and rejoin the Jets for training camp, meaning he’ll miss one more session of OTA’s. (Connor Hughes)
