Morning take: Can Tim Tebow be fixed?
By James Walker
Here are the most interesting stories Saturday in the AFC East:
Morning take: Unless you fix the mechanics, Tebow will be inaccurate and erratic as a thrower. Teams must take advantage of his other skills, such as his ability to run the ball.
- Quarterback gurus tell USA Today that New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow can be fixed.
Morning take: The Patriots do not need "Gronk" against the lowly Jaguars, and it's best to rest him until he's 100 percent. New England may want to consider resting him until the postseason.
- New England Patriots Pro Bowl tight end Rob Gronkowski will not play Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, ESPNBoston.com reports.
Morning take: That's good news, but the seven-year out clause is concerning. The Bills could be seeking a new stadium around that time, and that could be another battle between the county, state and the team.
- Buffalo Bills CEO Russ Brandon tells reporters the team isn’t going anywhere after a 10-year lease extension with Ralph Wilson Stadium.
Morning take: That is a big position in Joe Philbin’s offense and the aging Anthony Fasano will be a free agent. As we mentioned last week, Jermichael Finley of the Green Bay Packers could be available, and he’s very familiar with Philbin’s offense.
