Morning take: Will Welker get tagged?

By James Walker

Here are the most interesting stories Monday morning in the AFC East: Morning take: There is a very good chance it will happen. The Patriots are too smart to let Welker walk. But the tag also will buy time for both sides to continue to negotiate this offseason.
Morning take: Sherman coached Tannehill at Texas A&M. Does that put Tannehill in play for the Dolphins at No. 8 or No. 9 overall? Doubtful.
Morning take: Buffalo and Johnson haven't been on the same page in contract talks for a while. Both sides have to make up ground quickly or Johnson will hit the open market next month.
Morning take: A healthy Tom Brady and Manning could make the Jets a non-factor in the division. That would definitely put a lot of pressure on Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez and Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to step up their games.
