AFC East Notes: Bills, Dolphins, Jets, Patriots



  • The Athletic’s Joe Buscaglia says Bills TE Tyler Kroft wouldn’t necessarily be out of a job if Buffalo signed former Panthers TE Greg Olsen and could still earn a roster spot in training camp. 
  • Buscaglia believes South Carolina WR Bryan Edwards would be the perfect fit for the Bills as an option in the second or third round given his size and contested-catch ability. 
  • Other options include Arizona State WR Brandon Aiyuk, USC WR Michael Pittman and Liberty WR Antonio Gandy-Golden.
  • Buscaglia doesn’t anticipate the Bills being willing to give DE Shaq Lawson an eight-figure deal as a free agent. He also says the level of up-front commitment could cause Buffalo to shy away from a top free-agent pass rusher like Jaguars DE Yannick Ngakoue
  • WGR 550’s Sal Capaccio anticipates the Bills adding another corner despite having Tre’Davious White, as neither Levi Wallace nor Kevin Johnson could completely lock down the No. 2 spot. 
  • Capaccio says Johnson has a good shot of being back in Buffalo, while Wallace is also likely back as an exclusive rights free agent. 
  • The Bills are likely to let DT Jordan Phillips walk and let DTs Harrison Phillips and Vincent Taylor replace him as depth. (Buscaglia)


  • Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer says the Dolphins would likely be willing to move QB Josh Rosen this offseason and seem to have already made up their mind about him during training camp. 


Jets RB Le’Veon Bell said he spoke with HC Adam Gase during their exit meeting and is “fine” with him after reports claimed they had a rough relationship. 

“Me and coach Gase had our exit meeting,” Bell said, via “It was fine, so we straight. Yeah, we good.”

Bell reiterated that he and Gase are “good” and is confident he’ll play out the remainder of his contract with the Jets. 

“Everybody blowing everything out of proportion,” Bell says. “Water under the bridge — we’re fine. We good … Jets for four more years unless something drastic changes.”

  • while Tony Pauline believes Georgia OT Andrew Thomas is a good fit for the Jets’ system, he doesn’t think Thomas will be available to New York at No. 11 overall.
  • Instead, Pauline views Iowa OL Tristan Wirfs and Louisville OL Mekhi Becton as good fits for Gase’s offense but is unsure if Becton is worthy of a top-15 selection. 


  • ESPN’s Mike Reiss says the Patriots don’t currently appear to be on the radar to sign former Panthers TE Greg Olsen
