AFC East Notes: Bills, Jets, Patriots


Bills WR Cole Beasley feels his career has been revitalized since signing with Buffalo. 

I’m getting to do exactly what I want to do here. I feel like maybe in that point and time in Dallas I would’ve thought maybe I don’t know how many more years I got left, maybe I got 1 or 2. Now it’s like I’m here, I’m happy. I’ll play here until the wheels fall off,” said Beasley, via Jon Machota of The Athletic

The Bills have made the no-huddle a larger portion of their offense in the past few weeks and the results have been strong. Buffalo has hit 424 yards of total offense in the past two weeks and Bills QB Josh Allen has flourished with five touchdown passes. 

“You can go as fast as you need to go. You can slow it down with the quarterback slowing down to see what he needs to see,” Bills OC Brian Daboll said via’s Matt Parrino. “You can change tempo within the game without huddling. Sometimes that gives us answers before the test, whether Josh can see them down on the field, or I can see them up in the box. You can go quick. You can go slow. It’s been good for us.”

  • Some had speculated the Texans’ decision to fire former GM Brian Gaine and pursue Caserio came after Easterby talked to Caserio at New England’s ring ceremony and secured his interest.
