With the exception of Tom Brady, there are quarterback questions throughout the AFC East division.

Is New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez really the "Sanchize?" Can Ryan Fitzpatrick lead the Buffalo Bills to the playoffs? Will Ryan Tannehill develop into the best Miami Dolphins quarterback since Dan Marino? These are all questions division teams must answer for their long-term future.

ESPN.com senior writer Jeff Chadiha examines the difficult subject of when to cut ties with quarterbacks. Chadiha talks to NFL experts to get an answer.
"It really comes down to when the player stops improving," said former Redskins and Texans general manager Charley Casserly. "That's a hard thing to judge because there's a lot of thought that goes into picking these guys. You have a body of work that was assembled to make the selection, and egos do get involved. But if you get to the second and third year and you're still seeing the same mistakes, that's when you get concerned."

This is a pertinent story for Jets, Bills and Dolphins fans. Here is a link to read the full article.
