AFC East Notes: Dolphins, Jets, Patriots


  • While the Dolphins expressed some interest in QB Teddy Bridgewater during the offseason, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald thinks the Jets’ asking price and his contract likely would be too much for Miami.
  • According to Jackson, Dolphins DE Jonathan Woodard and WR Francis Owusu have impressed in training camp, despite facing long odds of making the team.
  • Even so, Jackson admits that it’s difficult to envision Woodard making the 53-man roster barring injuries due to the Dolphins depth at the position.
  • As for Osuwu, he’s competing with Isaiah Ford, Leonte Carroo and Rashawn Scott for a potential sixth receiver job.
  • Jackson mentions that RB Sinorise Perry, OT Zach Sterup and DT Anthony Moten have also looked good, despite being on the bubble.


  • Manish Mehta reports that Jets director of football administration Jackie Davidson is leaving the organization. Davidson served as the chief contract negotiator for Jets GM Mike Maccagnan.


New Titans RB Dion Lewis says he’s happy with his decision to move on from the Patriots, who apparently didn’t offer him a contract to return.

I’m happy with the decision, and this is the decision I would’ve made even if they did offer,” Lewis tells Ben Volin of the Boston Globe. “If they wanted me, they could’ve had me. But obviously, they didn’t want me, they didn’t think I was good enough to be there. I just had to move on and do what’s best for me.
