AFC East Notes: Bills, Dolphins, Patriots



Dolphins HC Brian Flores said Sunday that the starting quarterback decision could still go either way. 

“This could go either way . . . I think they’re both working hard, both have leadership, both have done a lot of good things,” Flores said, via the Miami Herald. “This will be a hard decision for the staff.”

  • Regarding LB Kiko Alonso, who is reportedly available for trade, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that a team source stopped short of saying Alonso definitely will be on the team. Jackson says it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Dolphins hold on to Alonso if they can’t trade him, given how productive he’s been for them. 
  • Flores was asked if veteran TE Dwayne Allen is still competing to make the team: “I love Dwyane, I do. But Dwayne knows I’m all about competition. He’s worked really hard to get back. He’s played well in spurts, had a couple tough plays the other night. It’s a good room [of tight ends]. No assumptions. We have to be productive. We have to keep the most productive players.”
  • Jackson notes that the Dolphins have five tight ends are competing for three or four jobs including Nick O’Leary, Mike Gesicki, Durham Smythe, Allen and Clive Walford
