AFC Notes: Dolphins, Jets, Patriots

     

Dolphins

Jets

  • SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano predicts the Jets to finish third in the AFC East in 2020, behind the Patriots and Bills and ahead of the Dolphins. 
  • Vacchiano believes Jets S Jamal Adams won’t be traded and will start the season still on the roster, as he has almost no leverage to force the team’s hand. 
  • Vacchiano confirms the Jets have actual interest in free-agent CB Logan Ryan but not at the veteran’s reported $10 million a year asking price. 
  • Regarding potential undrafted free agents who could make the team, Vacchiano says to keep an eye on EDGE Bryce Huff, CB Shyheim Carter, OT Jared Hilbers and WR Lawrence Cager

Patriots

  • Ian Rapoport reports that Cam Newton is in New England to complete his physical and finalize his one-year, $1.75M contract worth up to $7.5M with the Patriots.
  • According to Rapoport, the Patriots are confident in his condition and no issues are anticipated regarding his physical. Although, Rapoport adds that it will take a few days to complete.
  • Phil Perry of NBC Sports notes that Newton signed with the Patriots with a cap hit that was slightly higher than that of LS Joe Cardona, despite the fact that his contract is worth up to $7.5 million.
  • Much of the incentives of Newton’s contract are designated as “not likely to be earned”. By NFL rule, NLTBE incentives do not count against the salary cap immediately.
  • The Patriots had less than $1 million in space prior to agreeing to terms with Newton, according to Patriots cap expert Miguel Benzan.
