Here are the most interesting stories Wednesday in the AFC East:
Miami Dolphins Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino reflects on his rookie year and what that could mean for Ryan Tannehill.
Morning take: Not even Marino played in Week 1 as a rookie, which is what Tannehill will do Sunday. Even the best quarterbacks go through some growing pains and Tannehill will be no different.
After cutting Matt Tennant, the New England Patriots have just eight offensive linemen.
Morning take: I'm not sure what the Patriots are doing with their makeshift offensive line. Some players are banged up and we're still not sure if Brian Waters will return. But New England seems willing to go into Week 1 with eight players up front and no injuries.
The New York Jets switched punters Tuesday, signing Robert Malone before their Week 1 game against Buffalo.
Morning take: The Jets never seemed too comfortable with their kicking situation this offseason. Malone might get plenty of chances to prove himself with the way New York’s offense performed in the preseason.
The Buffalo Bills came in at No. 20 in the Associated Press’ NFL Power Rankings.
Morning take: The Bills didn’t get much respect from the AP or ESPN.com. Buffalo still has a lot to prove after not making the playoffs since 1999.
