Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC East:
Miami Dolphins rookie head coach Joe Philbin says he doesn't regret trading Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall to the Chicago Bears this offseason.
Morning take: Philbin did not want to put up with the headache Marshall can bring while trying to establish a new program. But it's clear Philbin could have used Marshall’s talent. Miami’s current group of receivers has little playmaking ability.
New England Patriots Pro Bowl tight end Rob Gronkowski is frustrated with the team's offense.
Morning take: New England hasn't looked in synch offensively, but this group hasn't received much playing time, either. The Patriots will go into the regular season a little bit rusty due to lack of reps in the preseason.
The New York Jets suffered several injuries in Sunday night's preseason game, including to linebacker David Harris (ankle) and tight ends Dustin Keller (hamstring) and Josh Baker (knee).
Morning take: The tight-end injuries are most concerning. Keller is very important and needs to be ready for the Bills in Week 1. Baker may be out for a significant time.
Is quarterback Tarvaris Jackson an upgrade over Vince Young for the Buffalo Bills?
Morning take: I’m not big on either as a quarterback. But the Bills must see something in Jackson that they might not see in Young. Their quarterback cuts will be interesting.
