Morning take: Bills, Steve Johnson close

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

Morning take: This is big news for Buffalo, which lacks depth at receiver. Both sides have not been on common ground for a while, but the tide seemed to turn for the better at the NFL combine.

Morning take: No shocker here. New England and Welker need more time to work out a long-term contract. If not, Welker will be a Patriot for at least another season.

  • Will the New York Jets take Alabama tailback Trent Richardson with the No. 16 pick?

Morning take: If Richardson is there, the Jets can't pass up that kind of talent. But I expect Richardson to be a top-10 pick.

  • Is going after quarterback Peyton Manning wrong for the Miami Dolphins?

Morning take: I pointed out the other side last week, but Manning deserves to be the favorite. Health permitting, he makes the Dolphins an immediate contender.
