AFC Notes: Dolphins, Jets & Texans


Dolphins Hall of Fame QB Dan Marino has been more involved in the team’s quarterback meetings, according to rookie Brandon Doughty.

“He’s been telling me I need to align to my throws, not fall off my throws,” Doughty said, via Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. “I’m going to work on that the next five weeks, I guarantee you. I get to talk to him every single day. It’s pretty cool.

“Actually had a flashback; my mom sent me a picture of Halloween of me being Dan Marino. I showed him the other day. Dan has still got it. A lot of teams don’t have a guy like that, with that much knowledge, to pick his mind. We’re in a special spot.”


  • Rich Cimini of ESPN writes that the Eagles have really made things difficult for the Jets with the contracts they handed out this offseason.
  • Cimini specifically points to that two-year, $35 million contract signed by QB Sam Bradford and the recent six-year, $103 million contract given to DT Fletcher Cox as the two particular agreements impacting the Jets and their talks with Ryan Fitzpatrick and franchise DT Muhammad Wilkerson.
  • In regards to Wilkerson, Cimini would be surprised to see him show up for training camp, especially when you consider he’s coming off of a broken leg and can’t be fined.
  • Cimini mentions undrafted rookie OLB Deion Barnes as someone worth keeping an eye on this summer.
