Here are the most interesting stories Thursday in the AFC East:
The Miami Dolphins could have significant roster turnover before the start of the regular season.
Morning take: This is a roster lacking depth and talented playmakers. Teams must trim rosters by Friday, and I expect the Dolphins to make many of those pickups to improve their team.
New York Jets owner Woody Johnson says the team cannot get enough of Tim Tebow.
Morning take: The context of the comments was about the struggling offense. New York has yet to score a preseason touchdown, and Tebow might be able to help in the red zone. The Jets have a lot of issues to fix before Sept. 9.
New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick says the race to be the No. 2 quarterback is "tight."
Morning take: Ryan Mallett and Brian Hoyer will both make the team, and Belichick probably won’t designate a backup until he has to. We thought Mallett had the better preseason, but he still lacks experience.
Here is another playoff prediction for the Buffalo Bills.
Morning take: Two playoff teams from the AFC East this season won’t be easy. It will probably take 10 wins to be safe. Are the Bills up for that challenge? They must first learn how to win inside the division.
