AFC East: Nick McDonald

Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday morning in the AFC East: Morning take: The Dolphins should be interested in all receivers with potential. I'm not convinced the team is happy with its current group. The Dolphins have the draft capital with two third-round picks next year thanks to the Brandon Marshall trade.
Morning take: Sanchez took a beating last season, and probably had wear and tear, but no surgery was needed. I'm a little tired of Burress talking about his former team seemingly to keep his name in the news while he searches for a job.

  • Buffalo Bills rookie receiver T.J. Graham is signed and ready to get to work.
Morning take: Buffalo has all of its draft picks signed, and rookies now can join the team on a voluntary basis. First-year players like Stephon Gilmore, Cordy Glenn and Graham all could have big roles this season.
Morning take: McDonald isn't a big name, but his versatility to play guard and center gives him a shot. McDonald's chances mostly rest on the availability of starting guards Logan Mankins and Brain Waters early in the season.

The Miami Dolphins' chances of victory have improved based on the Green Bay Packers' scratches Sunday at Lambeau Field.

The Packers will be without four starters, including the NFL's sacks leader, outside linebacker Clay Matthews.

Miami will have inside linebacker Channing Crowder in uniform for the first time this year. Defensive end Jared Odrick will miss his fourth straight game with a leg injury.
