AFC Notes: Bills, Dolphins, Patriots


  • On Friday, Bills OC Brian Daboll said of the Stefon Diggs‘ addition: “I’ve had quite a few conversations with him to try to develop that relationship I talked about that’s so important. He’s smart, he’s in all the meetings. Can’t wait to get out there and work together.” (Sal Capaccio)
  • As for rookie RB Zack Moss, Daboll said: “He really did a good job on his college tape of the things we’re looking for in a running back…tough, hard-nosed…it’s a hard transition to go from college to pros to be successful right away. The quicker you can do it the more you can help your team.” (Sal Capaccio)
  • Bills special teams coordinator Heath Farwell said the punting job is Corey Bojorquez‘s to lose. Farwell add that while he’s done a very good job, but they need more consistency at punter. The Bills also have Kaare Vedvik competing for the job. (Sal Capaccio)
  • Farwell said he called Stephen Hauschka after they drafted Tyler Bass and told him it’s his job to lose. Farwell added Hauschka could approach it one of two ways: Either pack it in or compete. (Matt Parrino)


Buccaneers HC Bruce Arians was asked about how he thinks the Dolphins should handle Tua Tagovailoa. Arians said if all is well with Tagovailoa’s hip, he should be under center for Miami. 

“I think it all depends on his health; if he’s healthy I’m playing him,” Arians told 100.9 FM in Alabama, via“I don’t think you learn anything holding a clipboard. You know, I had Peyton Manning his first year, Andrew Luck his first year, Ben [Roethlisberger] was one of those guys that went in by accident because Tommy Maddox got hurt. You miss all the practice reps, you miss the game reps. I don’t know what you learn holding a clipboard watching.”
