AFC East Notes: Jets, Tom Brady, Patriots


Jets HC Todd Bowles admitted that they will have a “tough decision” to make in the coming weeks regarding their starting quarterback job.

“We’ll see how the preseason goes,” Bowles said, via the New York Post. “Like I said, I’ll make my decision when it happens. I’m not going to jump to any conclusions after one game. I’m going to take my notes and watch practice and compare with the coaches and we’ll come up with a decision. It’s a tough decision. We’ve got three good players and we’re happy to have them.”
