Morning take: Todd Bowles leaving Miami?

Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday morning in the AFC East:

  • The Miami Herald reports Dolphins assistant coach Todd Bowles most likely will not return.

Morning take: Bowles did a good job in Miami, but I understand a new staff wanting to change direction. Bowles represents the old regime and the old way of doing things. This is a new era.

  • The New York Daily News reports the Jets are interested in another Dolphins coach. New York got permission to interview Dolphins offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo.

Morning take: DeGuglielmo also is expected to exit Miami. But why is New York looking to fix its offense with so many of Miami's former coaches?

  • Baltimore Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayandadejo tweets that the two best teams -- Baltimore and the San Francisco 49ers -- are sitting at home.

Morning take: This sounds like sour grapes to me. All four teams played a pair of classic conference title games. But you don't get second chances in the playoffs. The Ravens came up just short.

Morning take: This is an interesting question, because the Bills throw the football a lot. But their best talent is at running back with Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller. Balance is needed, even with a spread offense.
