AFC East links: Bart Scott sums up Jets
By ESPN.com staff
In his first year as the Bills' defensive coordinator, Dave Wannstedt will guide the team's switch to a 4-3 scheme. So which position group will grasp the change the quickest?
Defensive end Randy Starks has been one of the NFL's most underrated defensive players, says the Buffalo News' Tim Graham.
There are five players entering the "put up or shut up" era of their time with the Bills. Buffalo Rising's Josh Bauer doesn't hold back on who those players are.
Following a somewhat disappointing offseason, there are several Dolphins who must step up their game to make a better impression on new coach Joe Philbin and his staff, according to the Sun Sentinel's Omar Kelly.
Grab your iced coffee Dolphins fans; you will have to get up early to see the team in training camp.
New England Patriots
Aside from stars like Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski, there's a quintet who must emerge to help the Patriots succeed in 2012, says the Boston Herald's Jeff Howe.
Replacing a Pro Bowler is never an easy task, however, tackle Nate Solder has the background and the fortitude to succeed in New England.
New York Jets
Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis says rookie Demario Davis has been the standout so far this offseason. “He’s vocal. You don’t frown on that. You accept that. He still has a lot of things to learn. But just to have those leadership qualities, you can tell where he came from. You can tell he was a leader in college."
The Star-Ledger's Jenny Vrentas asks Bart Scott what will be the biggest difference between the 2012 Jets and the 2011 Jets? Scott answers simply, "Not a sense of entitlement."
