Morning take: Managing Miami expectations

By James Walker

Here are the most interesting stories Thursday in the AFC East: Morning take: It absolutely does not. Miami must put it all together on the field in order to earn respect. But the Dolphins have enough talent on paper to contend for a wild-card spot this season.
Morning take: The NFL is a cruel business and the Patriots are one of the more emotionless teams. Love played well for New England last season but joins former teammate Brandon Deaderick as recent cuts on the defensive line.
Morning take: The New York Jets were a strong target for Cribbs, but a balky knee forced general manager John Idzik to wait. It is clear Oakland doesn’t have the same level of concern.
Morning take: Anderson came to Buffalo with expectations after recording double-digit sacks with the Patriots in 2011. This is an important time for Anderson to show he can get healthy and contribute to the Bills this upcoming season.
