AFC Notes: Dolphins, Jets, Steelers, & Titans


  • James Walker of ESPN expects Billy Turner, Dallas Thomas, Jeffrey Linkenbach and fourth-round rookie Jamil Douglas to compete for the two starting guard positions.
  • Walker does not see Miami making any significant free agent additions at this time, barring an injury.
  • CB Jamar Taylor is expected to start at the No. 2 cornerback opposite of Brent Grimes.


  • Rich Cimini of ESPN only sees a “five percent” chance of the Jets trading DE Muhammad Wilkerson.
  • Cimini does not expect fourth-round rookie QB Bryce Petty to play immediately, but could see him coming in for the final two games of the season if the Jets are having a poor season.
  • According to Cimini, WR Jeremy Kerley will likely start at slot receiver over second-round rookie WR Devin Smith.
  • Cimini could see the Jets implementing a 4-3 defensive scheme against run oriented teams.


  • Steelers signed seventh-round S Gerod Holliman to a four-year deal.


  • Paul Kuharsky of ESPN believes G Andy Levitre is getting his “last chance” in 2015 to prove he is worth the contract he received in 2013.
  • Kuharsky writes that Jeremiah Poutasi and Byron Bell will compete for the starting right tackle spot.
  • Kuharsky expects CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson to start as the nickel corner, due to the arrival of CB Perrish Cox.
  • According to Kuharsky, DE Daquan Jones is the most likely player on the Titans to have a breakout season in 2015, with ILB Zach Brown, WR Justin Hunter and RB Bishop Sankey being other possibilities.
