Morning take: Patriots meeting TE Shiancoe

By James Walker

Here are the most interesting stories Thursday morning in the AFC East: Morning take: The Patriots continue to look at tight ends. In addition to Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez, New England signed Daniel Fells, cut Bo Scaife and now is checking out Shiancoe.
Morning take: In other words, don't expect Tannehill to start in Week 1. Miami is rightfully taking its time and letting veterans Matt Moore and David Garrard battle it out. Tannehill is the quarterback of the future.
Morning take: The Bills need several. Defensive end Mario Williams is the obvious choice. But I like several other players like Marcell Dareus, Kyle Williams, George Wilson and Jairus Byrd, as well.
Morning take: That sounds about right. Holmes is a dynamic talent, but only when he's focused and on the same page. That wasn't the case last year when Holmes was in the middle of the team's implosion.
