Morning take: Dolphins on the bubble

By James Walker

Here are the most interesting stories Friday in the AFC East: Morning take: Plenty of receivers are on the bubble in Miami, as the team tries to pick its top five or six players to keep. That is a position to watch in these final two preseason games. The Dolphins must also decide what to do with young backup quarterback Pat Devlin.
Morning take: The group hasn't looked sharp in the preseason, but I expect more when the real games begin. Buffalo's defensive line must lead this group and provide a boost for the other two levels.
Morning take: The Jets need a jolt to their struggling offense, and Holmes, New York's No. 1 receiver, can provide it. He's one of the few offensive playmakers on the team.
Morning take: Receivers Wes Welker and Jabar Gaffney are the big names. But both players are resting up for the regular season. This is the “dress rehearsal” game for New England and a final chance for many of the starters to prepare for Week 1 of the regular season.
