Morning take: Bills' draft options
By James Walker
Here are the most interesting stories Sunday morning in the AFC East:
Morning take: Buffalo may need to slightly overdraft a player like receiver Michael Floyd or left tackle Riley Reiff. But if the player turns out to be a franchise building block, no one will care if he was taken No. 10 or No. 15.
Morning take: The Patriots did a smart thing by grabbing Solder in the first round last year. Solder is a good, developing player and will plug in well if needed.
- New England Patriots backup offensive tackle Nate Solder is ready to take over if Matt Light retires.
Morning take: Everyone has an opinion on how this will work. But this is a hit-or-miss experiment, which makes it so intriguing.
- Former New York Jets star running back Curtis Martin likes the acquisition of quarterback Tim Tebow.
Morning take: This means the offensive line will be asked to be more mobile this season. The Dolphins had more of a grinding running game up front. So there will be an adjustment.
- The Miami Dolphins will be switching to more of a zone-blocking scheme in rookie coach Joe Philbin's West Coast offense.
