AFC East Notes: Dolphins, Jets, Patriots



Dolphins OC Chad O’Shea said they will encourage QB Josh Rosen to ask any questions he may have about why the offense is doing something.

“It’s important,” O’Shea said, via the Palm Beach Post. “Players should want to know why. It’s something we encourage, to learn the whys. If they’re not inquisitive about the whys then they’re never really going to conceptually understand the offense. So I think that Josh is highly intelligent, just like Ryan [Fitzpatrick] and Jake [Rudock] are, so having smart guys is a good thing. Those guys aren’t afraid to ask why. And we’re not afraid to answer it.”
