AFC East Rumors: Bills, Jets, Patriots



  • According to Dan Graziano, the Bills are a team to watch for Rams free agent ILB Cory Littleton, who could secure as much as $13 million per year this offseason.
  • According to’s Mike Kaye, Eagles DE Vinny Curry makes a lot of sense as a free-agent target for the Bills if they miss out on some of the top options.
  • ESPN’s Jenna Laine confirms the Buccaneers don’t expect to be able to re-sign WR Breshad Perriman.
  • Laine writes Tampa Bay is expected to prioritize re-signing other players on defense and addressing the vacancy at No. 3 wide receiver in what’s expected to be a deep draft class. 



  • ESPN’s Mike Reiss says the new CBA passing is good for the Patriots’ chances of re-signing QB Tom Brady
  • Reiss writes the two key questions are still how much Brady really wants to stay in New England and how much Patriots HC Bill Belichick is willing to give financially, annually and emotionally to keep him. 
  • NFL Media’s Michael Giardi points out the new CBA allows the Patriots to push money into future years in a new deal for Brady. 
  • Tom Curran of NBC Boston reports that if Tom Brady hits the open market, it’s unlikely there will be a long, drawn-out process
  • According to Curran, Brady isn’t melancholy about the possibility that his time with the Patriots could be coming to an end and he’s instead “at peace and looking forward to the possibilities in front of him.”
  • Curran says it “seems doubtful” that Brady’s preference at this point is to return to New England.
  • Dan Graziano notes that if the Patriots don’t re-sign QB Tom Brady before 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday, an additional $6.75 million charge accelerates onto their 2020 salary cap.
  • With this in mind, Graziano expects New England to have a deal in place with Brady before Wednesday.
