Throughout the day I'll post the rundowns of free agents for each AFC East club.

We'll start off with the New York Jets, who have a lot of work to do to get their roster organized for 2009.

They're already about $7 million over the projected salary cap because of an accumulation of prorated signing bonuses.

Before we get to the list of free agents, here are some of the higher cap numbers for Jets under contract. I think everybody can identify one player in particular who will alleviate a lot a lot of cap strain if he doesn't return:

Here are the Jets whose contracts are up:

Unrestricted (free to negotiate with any team beginning Feb. 27)

Restricted (Jets have right to match offer from other team)

Exclusive rights (cannot negotiate with other teams if tendered qualifying offer)

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Greetings from balmy Giants Stadium, where the Miami Dolphins can claim the AFC East title with a victory over the New York Jets. Conditions are warm and windy, but nothing like the tornadic gusts at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

There are no surprise scratches for Sunday's showdown. The Dolphins will have both linebacker Channing Crowder and cornerback Will Allen, who missed considerable practice time this week but will dress.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Because the New England Patriots staged a walkthrough Tuesday afternoon, it's difficult to determine exactly what the initial injury report means for Thursday night's game against the New York Jets.

Patriots running back Sammy Morris, coming back from a knee injury, was listed under "limited participation." That's better than running back LaMont Jordan, who didn't participate at all due to his nagging calf problem.

Also not participating for the Patriots were linebacker Adalius Thomas (forearm) and cornerbacks Lewis Sanders (hamstring) and Terrence Wheatley (wrist). Thomas is expected to be placed on season-ending injured reserve.

Limited for New England were guard Stephen Neal (knee), defensive end Ty Warren (groin) and linebacker Eric Alexander (hamstring).

For the Jets, tight end Bubba Franks (hip), linebacker David Harris (groin) and safety
Eric Smith (head) didn't practice Tuesday. Limited were receivers Laveranues Coles (thigh), Jerricho Cotchery (shoulder) and Brad Smith, linebacker Cody Spencer (shoulder) and kicker Mike Nugent (thigh).
