Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC East:
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the New York Jets want to restructure the contract of receiver Santonio Holmes.
Morning take: That's ideal, but will Holmes cooperate? He is due at least $7.5 million guaranteed next season. Holmes is coming off an injury and it's probably wise that he doesn't take less money.
Could the Green Bay Packers use the franchise tag on wide receiver Greg Jennings?
Morning take: That would be a silly move for Green Bay, but it is an option. It would cost Green Bay $10.4 million against the cap and hinder some other players Aaron Rodgers to get long-term extensions. Jennings most likely hits free agency. Miami will be watching this closely.
The New England Patriots, at No. 29, are going depth over star power at the NFL draft.
Morning take: This is a good year to do it. This is not a top-heavy draft, but there will be good value at the end of the first rounds. We will have more on the draft and combine later today.
Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib has been working out with former NFL coach Paul Hackett.
Mornint take: Hackett is the father of Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett. I assume the two talk regularly about the chances of bringing Nassib to Buffalo.
