AFC East Notes: Bills, Dolphins, Patriots



Bills free agent RB Frank Gore says he’s still hoping to continue his career in 2020. 

I’m going to wait til March and see what team really wants me,” Gore said, via the Miami Herald. “I still feel good. I know I still can play. It’s just gotta be right.”


While he believes Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa is a great player, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross expressed concern about his health following the hip injury. 

“I’ve been down there to see him,” Ross said, via Cameron Wolfe of ESPN. “He’s a great player. I just worry about his health. . . . The coaches [and General Manager] make the decision on the draft choices. We’ll have to look at what his health is and everything else and see what the alternatives are.”

  • Regarding Tagovailoa’s draft stock, Matt Miller says it is clear that the prospect’s health will determine how early he is drafted. If healthy, Miller believes the Dolphins are “a lock” to select him at No. 5 overall and it’s possible Miami could trade up to get him. 


Former Patriots offensive coordinator Charlie Weis tells Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald that he doesn’t think Bill Belichick will turn to second-year quarterback Jarrett Stidham in the event Tom Brady departs in free agency. 

I personally don’t think it will be Stidham. I think it’ll be a veteran guy [to replace Brady],” Weis said. “But I also wouldn’t put it past Bill to run all the way to the top of the draft, and go get one of the big boys. I wouldn’t put it past him.

“Just when you rule out that he’ll do something like that, that’s when he’ll do it,” Weis added. “All of a sudden Tua is your quarterback.”
