Morning take: Ryan Tannehill on the rise

By James Walker

Here are the most interesting stories Friday the AFC East: Morning take: The Dolphins are expecting big things from Tannehill in Year 2. Miami’s front office put a lot of weapons around him this season and expects Tannehill to make the jump and lead the Dolphins into playoff contention.
Morning take: Not according to ESPN medical expert Stephania Bell. Gronkowski had his fourth arm surgery this week and aims to make it back for training camp. But based on Gronkowski’s long history of injuries, the Patriots must be cautious.
Morning take: I think Ryan has been too patient with Sanchez in the past, but those days are over. Ryan is in the hot seat this year and can’t afford another turnover-prone year from Sanchez. If rookie quarterback Geno Smith is better in training camp, he should play in Week 1.
Morning take: This is good news for the Bills after Chandler suffered a torn ACL late last season. Buffalo hasn’t found a sure replacement for Chandler and will need him back in the lineup as soon as possible.
