Here are the most interesting stories Thursday the AFC East:
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan was not pleased with quarterback Mark Sanchez's three interceptions in practice Wednesday.
Morning take: It is easy to say it’s just practice. But Sanchez is in a four-way competition and needs to begin separating himself if he wants to claim the starting job. Three interceptions will not cut it.
Buffalo Bills rookies EJ Manuel and Marquise Goodwin are working together to master the offensive playbook.
Morning take: It is good for Buffalo’s rookie quarterback and receiver to work together. Perhaps the two will also bond on the field and have good chemistry.
The New England Patriots claimed another former Rutgers player off waivers: offensive tackle Kevin Haslam.
Morning take: That brings the Patriots up to eight former Rutgers players on the roster, the most of any college. Belichick has strong ties to the school and is taking advantage of the inside knowledge.
New Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Gibson is getting work in the slot.
Morning take: Miami has to fill a void left by the trade of Davone Bess to the Cleveland Browns. Gibson is not a natural slot receiver, but he’s probably the third-best receiver on Miami’s roster.
