Morning take: What is Mark Sanchez doing?


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

Morning take: This won’t be the first or last time we see a pro athlete partying. But Sanchez has to be smarter than this. Some are already calling this the “Butt Fumble Part II.”

  • NFL rookies can learn a lot from the case of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez.

Morning take: There are plenty of cautionary tales, but this is the most recent. Hernandez had a really good situation in New England but now faces major legal issues that may potentially ruin his career.

Morning take: Training camp is important for a team like the Bills. They are in transition with a new offense, a new defense and a new quarterback. All these moving parts must be in sync by their Week 1 game against New England.

  • The Miami Dolphins continue to have dialogue with free-agent fullback Vonta Leach.

Morning take: Miami has been pegged as the favorite. The Dolphins have been very aggressive in free agency, and it's rare to be able to add a Pro Bowl player this late in the offseason.
