Morning take: Vikes offered Wallace more?

By James Walker

Here are the most interesting stories Friday in the AFC East: Morning take: The Dolphins still paid Wallace $60 million, but I think it shows that Wallace wasn’t only thinking dollar signs when he chose Miami. He wanted to play for an up-and-coming team.
Morning take: This is a solid ranking for “Gronk,” but injuries probably kept him from landing a little higher. Gronkowski, who’s had offseason back and arm issues, must stay healthy for the Patriots this season.
Morning take: It’s been an up-and-down spring for Smith, which is to be expected. But the second-round draft pick is falling behind in the quarterback competition with Mark Sanchez and needs to do more in training camp to make up ground.
Morning take: Brown has a head start on Legursky, who just arrived. But Legursky does have playoff and Super Bowl experience from his time with the Pittsburgh Steelers. The spot was left open after the exit of Andy Levitre via free agency.
