AFC Notes: Dolphins, Patriots, Titans


Dolphins HC Brian Flores wasn’t willing to commit to a starting quarterback following Thursday’s preseason game, but he admitted that Josh Rosen‘s play “makes the decision harder.”

“[Rosen] played well,” Flores said, via the Palm Beach Post. “And that makes the decision harder. I think that’s pretty clear and evident. But again there are other things at play here.

  • According to Armando Salguero, recently signed DT Robert Nkemdiche doesn’t appear to be in any sort of football shape, as he could not complete pregame gassers and stopped at the 53-yard line. 


  • Regarding the reports that mentioned that the Patriots offered the Redskins a 2020 first-round pick for LT Trent Williams, Field Yates reports that New England is not and has not been in the business of trading for Williams.
