Morning take: Tim Tebow at tight end?

By James Walker

Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday in the AFC East: Morning take: With injuries to Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez, the Patriots need extra skill players. But based on what I saw from Tebow last year, he has a lot to learn running routes and catches passes.
Morning take: I wouldn’t rule it out considering Jets general manager John Idzik’s ties to Jackson with the Seattle Seahawks. Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith aren’t necessarily lighting up spring workouts for the Jets. So the Jets may want to add more competition.
Morning take: Byrd cannot get fined because he has not signed his franchise tender. But Byrd is making a major statement that he’s taking a hard-line stance on this contract situation.
Morning take: Starks also is looking for a long-term contract, but he appears more willing to earn his $8.5 million this year. Miami spent a lot of money this offseason and may not spend on another huge contract extension.
