Around the AFC East: Bills' top pick arrives
Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham
- CB Leodis McKelvin, the No. 11 overall draft pick, finally arrived to camp and has begun his quest to unseat Jabari Greer as the left-side starter. He made it in time for the first practice in pads Monday.
- Before McKelvin signed his five-year deal, potentially worth $19.4 million, his family was spending his money.
- Playoff talk has been rampant so far at Bills camp, even though they haven't been there since the 1999 season.

- The Jets signed an AFC East exclusivity agreement with an innovative Web site that, with an Xbox 360 controller, helps them securely access their playbook, video and scouting reports from anywhere in the world.
- Dave Hutchinson of the Newark Star-Ledger suggests if the Jets QB competition between Chad Pennington and Kellen Clemens were a pay-per-view event, fans would be livid. It has been lopsided so far.
- New York Daily News reporter Rich Cimini writes "Pennington is beating Clemens soundly, but everything could change with one phone call," saying the Jets still are in the Brett Favre hunt.
- Pennington on Sunday made a pointed request for the front office to make up its mind on Favre quickly. "Sooner or later," Pennington said, "the organization has to make a decision one way or the other."
