Here are the most interesting stories Thursday morning in the AFC East:
The New York Jets' trade with the Carolina Panthers is on hold after offensive tackle Jeff Otah failed his physical.
Morning take: This is not a big surprise. Otah has bad knees and the Jets knew it when they traded a conditional pick for him. Otah has a week to get healthy for the trade to go through. Wayne Hunter has his fingers crossed.
The Miami Dolphins signed two more draft picks: Olivier Vernon and Michael Egnew.
Morning take: That leaves quarterback and first-round pick Ryan Tannehill as the last remaining draft pick. Players report today, but practice isn't until Friday. So Miami has one more day to work out a contract before Tannehill misses time on the field.
What will tight end Visanthe Shiancoe bring to the New England Patriots’ offense?
Morning take: Depth is most important. Shiancoe can still be a decent receiving tight end, and that's what New England needs in this offense. Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez can get injured at any time.
The Buffalo Bills are eager to get back to work.
Morning take: Buffalo still has a sour taste from losing eight of its last nine games last season. A stellar offseason has given this team playoff aspirations. But it is up to the players and coaches to put the work in, starting now.
