Morning take: Should Buffalo draft a QB?

By James Walker

Here are the most interesting stories Wednesday morning in the AFC East: Morning take: Nor should he be. Fitzpatrick's $59 million extension virtually guarantees he will be Buffalo's quarterback for at least two seasons. But Fitzpatrick, as the face of the franchise, needs to play much more consistently next season.
Morning take: The Brady-to-Ocho connection has been a disappointment this season. But that doesn’t mean the pair can’t get more production down the stretch and into the playoffs.
Morning take: Miami is 5-2 in its last seven games and could give the Patriots a scare. But I don’t think the Dolphins have the explosiveness to keep up with New England on the road.
Morning take: That’s noble of Ryan, but I can think of plenty of reasons the Jets are in this situation. Ryan could have toned down the talk a bit, but he’s not the biggest reason the Jets are down to their last strike.
