Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday in the AFC East:
Can the new-look Miami Dolphins challenge the New England Patriots in the AFC East this season?
Morning take: Miami made a lot of improvements and certainly closed the gap with New England. But the difference was so great that I don’t think the Dolphins surpassed New England in one offseason. Still, Miami has a good chance to challenge for a wild card.
Speaking of the Patriots, they have one of the NFL’s smallest coaching staffs.
Morning take: New England coach Bill Belichick is the biggest, most singular voice in the franchise. It’s probably best that the team doesn’t have too many cooks in the kitchen. The Patriots are doing fine with a staff of 17 coaches.
New York Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg says quarterback Mark Sanchez's accuracy is “sky high.”
Morning take: If that’s the case, Sanchez should win the quarterback competition with rookie Geno Smith. However, Sanchez is only a 55.1-percent passer in his career. So there's a good chance that Mornhinweg is overstating things.
The Buffalo Bills could have one of the youngest starting lineups in the NFL.
Morning take: Much of that will depend on the ability of Buffalo’s rookie class to learn the NFL game. Quarterback EJ Manuel, receiver Robert Woods and linebacker Kiko Alonso all have a chance to win starting jobs right away in training camp.
