AFC Notes: Bills, Dolphins, Jets


Bills WR Stefon Diggs said he wants to win five Super Bowl championships.

“I haven’t reached the mountain top yet. I always aim high. I want five Super Bowl rings,” Diggs said, via The Buffalo News. “I want the Hall of Fame. I want the glory. I believe I’m a champion. But, more so, I want to carry some people along with me. I want my brother, Trevon, to have a good career. I want to give my mom a place where she can be comfortable. I want to give people jobs. I want to do more for D.C., my city. The mountain top isn’t just for football; it’s for life in general. The more people I can help – that’s when I’ll look back and know I made a difference.”


Dolphins DBs coach Gerald Alexander said he tried to recruit second-round S Jevon Holland to the University of California while he was their defensive backs coach.

“I’ve known Jevon for a long time; I tried to recruit him at Cal [but he went to Oregon],” Alexander said, via Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. 

Alexander points out that Holland played as a deep safety in sub-packages and a big safety in other sets, which will help him succeed in the Dolphins’ defense. 

“Jevon when you look at his college career, he really only played two years,” Alexander said. “As a freshman, he played as a deep safety in sub packages, but he did some really good things as a young guy. His willingness to tackle in the middle of field showed up. Second year, they really allowed him to play in the box, nickel guy, big safety. He was able to make tackles in the open field, play some man-to-man. Along with his natural athletic gifts, you can see a very versatile player. We prioritize multiplicity in this defense. He’s our kind of guy.”

Dolphins LBs coach Anthony Campanile said LB Benardrick McKinney could be used as an inside and outside linebacker. 

“McKinney has a versatile skill set which we value,” Campanile said. “I’m very excited he’s here with us. He gives us a chance to do a bunch of things with him.”


Jets’ LB C.J. Mosley is returning from injury with a chip on his shoulder and says that he is ready to get back on the field and command the respect that he previously did.

“There’s a little added chip [on his shoulder] because you’ve always got your fans that are going to heckle,” Mosley said, via Rich Cimini of ESPN. “When I get back on the field, I definitely want to make sure they respect the name again. Yeah, I don’t have any doubts in myself. I mean, Gronk took two years off [one, actually] and won a Super Bowl, so it is what it is. I’m here, so we’ll let the play do the talking. My body feels great. I’m mentally happy, I’m physically happy, I’m emotionally happy. I’m just happy to be back on the field. When you’re out for a while, you’re always in your head, thinking, ‘When I get back, how’s it going to feel? Am I going to be able to move like I used to?’ After finishing this week, I feel great.”

  • Mike Garafolo reports that Jets WR Corey Davis suffered a minor shoulder train in OTAs on Thursday after landing on his shoulder. Garafolo adds that the Jets’ doctors believe Davis will be okay after some rest.
