Morning take: Chad Henne to Jets?
By James Walker
Here are the most interesting stories Thursday morning in the AFC East:
Morning take: The AFC East blog called this one weeks ago. New Jets offensive coordinator Tony Sparano was a big supporter of Henne while in Miami. It didn't work out for either party. But it makes a lot of sense to have Henne reunited with Sparano and push Jets starting quarterback Mark Sanchez next season.
Morning take: In a perfect world, Williams is just what New England's defense needs. He's a game-changer who can get to the quarterback. But financially this would be tough. New England has the cap room, but Williams and receiver Wes Welker would take up a majority of it.
- Will the New England Patriots make a play for free agent defensive end/linebacker Mario Williams?
Morning take: I think Miami should go the route of free agency. Peyton Manning or Matt Flynn are better options at this point, considering it only takes money to get these quarterbacks. The price for Griffin III is going to be a lot, and Miami needs its draft picks to help other areas.
Morning take: Buffalo's third unit was solid, especially when Rian Lindell was healthy early in the season. The kicking and punting from Lindell and Brian Moorman, respectivley, combined with big returns from Leodis McKelvin helped Buffalo's numbers.
- The Buffalo Bills' special teams were ranked 11th according to the Dallas Morning News.
