AFC Notes: Bills, Dolphins, Patriots



Bills’ WR Stefon Diggs is excited about getting his chance to prove he is one of the best receivers in the NFL and has enjoyed the way he has fit into the team’s offense.

“I’m definitely happy I get to play many different spots,” Diggs said, via Pro Football Talk. “I think it also helps other guys as far as other receivers being in different spots because we got some guys who can play some exceptional football. And we’ve got some young guys stepping up as well. It’s kind of hard to keep tabs on everybody, whether I’m drawing a lot of attention or whether I’m not. If I am, hopefully, I can get a guy open.”

Patriots’ OC Josh McDaniels is impressed by QB Cam Newton‘s ability to be coached since they have been working together.

“I have been super impressed with his humility,” McDaniels said, via Zack Cox of “This guy has accomplished a lot in his career. Being 10 years in the league and doing all the things he has done, coming here and having no familiarity with our coaching style, our system, or the way we do things, I have been incredibly impressed with the way he’s embraced it, looks forward to it, really wants to be coached, wants to be great, wants to improve and is a great example for a lot of our younger players.”

  • Patriots’ HC Bill Belichick on the emergence of OL Mike Onwenu: “Smart kid, learns quickly. He played right guard at Michigan; has played [LG] some, but played [RG, RT] more. His ability to adapt and adjust his footwork based on whether he’s playing tackle or left side of the line has been very impressive.” (Mike Reiss)
