Morning take: Rex Ryan's days numbered?


Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC East:

  • After the New York Jets traded away star cornerback Darrelle Revis, is Rex Ryan now a lame-duck coach?

Morning take: If this is a must-win year, Ryan's prospects do not look promising. The Jets are not a playoff team and have one of the weakest rosters in the NFL. Ryan would have to do the best coaching job of his career to make New York a contender.

  • Will the Buffalo Bills draft Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib or USC's Matt Barkley later this week?

Morning take: Preferably one of these players falls to the second round. The addition of Kevin Kolb provides flexibility so the Bills won't have to reach for a quarterback at No. 8 overall.

  • The Miami Dolphins could consider West Virginia receiver Tavon Austin or Notre Dame tight end Tyler Eifert in the first round.

Morning take: Miami did a lot to deepen its receiver position, so I don't expect the team to add another one in the first round. Eifert would be a good fit if the team is ready to quit on 2012 draft pick Michael Egnew.

Morning take: The Patriots don’t need Hernandez now. But this is the time to build chemistry. Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski need to focus on getting back to 100 percent for the fall.
