Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday in the AFC East:
It turns out quarterback Tom Brady's three-year, $27 million extension with the New England Patriots is fully guaranteed.
Morning take: This is a good compromise for Brady to take an extension that's below market value. Brady will be a Patriot until he's 40, which is a career goal for him, and the added cap space will keep New England competitive.
What does Brady's extension mean for the New York Jets?
Morning take: It means, health permitting, Brady isn’t going anywhere for another five years. Teams like the Jets must figure out a way to beat Brady, because he's not retiring in the next year or two.
The Buffalo Bills are at the NFL combine in search of help at linebacker.
Morning take: Buffalo was 31st against the run last season and was too small at linebacker. Buffalo needs to add toughness in the middle of Mike Pettine's 3-4 defense, as well as linebackers who can cover ground.
BYU defensive end Ziggy Ansah ran an impressive 4.62 time in the 40-yard dash.
Morning take: Teams like the Miami Dolphins have interest in Ansah. He's a raw prospect without much experience. But Ansah has good physical tools if he can be coached up by the right team.
