Here are the most interesting stories Friday in the AFC East:
Former Patriots defensive end Willie McGinest says New England's defense needs more attitude.
Morning take: I think better corners and safeties would do. New England’s front seven is solid and was ninth against the run. It was the NFL-high 74 passing plays of 20 yards or more that's an issue.
Will the Buffalo Bills’ defense have answers for running quarterbacks next season?
Morning take: New defensive coordinator Mike Pettine should be more concerned about running backs. Buffalo’s front seven was pushed around way too much by opponents last season.
Should the New York Jets go after New York Giants defensive end and free agent Osi Umenyiora?
Morning take: I’m skeptical of any big name coming to the Jets this offseason. Their cap is too tight to make a huge signing. New York has to release a lot of players to be able to sign Umenyiora.
Miami Dolphins safety Reshad Jones gets a raise due to a performance-based bonus in his contract.
Morning take: Jones, who came in at No. 40 in "Walker's Fab 40," had a career year that put him on the map. He’s a talented player who could lead Miami’s secondary for years to come.
