Let’s round up a few of the latest updates from around the AFC East….
- Tom E. Curran of CSNNE.com doesn’t expect the market for Julian Edelman this offseason to exceed $6MM per year, in which case he believes there’s a good chance the free agent receiver returns to the Patriots.
- Governor of New York Andrew M. Cuomo has appointed the first five members to group known as the New Stadium Working Group, which will be tasked with exploring the possibility of building a new stadium for the Bills, according to Gene Warner and Jonathan D. Epstein of the Buffalo News. New York State, Erie County and the Bills will all be responsible for appointing up to seven members to the board, which is poised to meet “within the next two weeks” to begin discussions.
- Even if the Dolphins can extract a sixth- or seventh-round pick out of another team in exchange for Jonathan Martin, Miami should simply cut him rather than keeping him on the roster through potentially lengthy trade negotiations, argues Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald. Releasing Martin and allowing Richie Incognito to sign elsewhere would at least symbolically close the door on last year’s bullying scandal, allowing the team to move forward, says Salguero.
- ESPN.com’s James Walker wonders if the Dolphins might have interest in offensive lineman Gabe Carimi, who was released yesterday by the Buccaneers.
