Morning take: The Patriots model

Here are the most interesting stories Wednesday in the AFC East:

Morning take: Both franchises are stable and have won championships. New Orleans' bounty controversy will probably set the team back this year. But this is still a talented group.

Morning take: Nelson will miss this week’s preseason opener against the Washington Redskins. But he’s getting better every day. The Bills will need him to work in the slot, which is an important role in their offense.

Morning take: I’m surprised that Johnson didn’t see this coming. He surely knew what happened with Tim Tebow last year and has to be aware of the New York media market. What else did Johnson expect?

Morning take: Naanee began camp on the first team and wants it to stay that way. Naanee and Johnson are Miami’s two starters at the moment, and there will be a lot of pressure for both veterans to produce in Miami’s West Coast offense.
