AFC Notes: Levitre, Brown, Raiders, Dolphins

Big money guard Andy Levitre isn’t starting for the Titans in the preseason for the second straight week, which doesn’t bode well for his chances of making the team, writes Jason Cole of Bleacher Report (via Twitter). Cole expects the team to release him, and picks the Dolphins and Eagles as possible landing spots.

Here are some other notes from around the AFC:

  • The Texans released Stevie Brown earlier today, and Tania Ganguli of ESPN writes that the timing is interesting because it was clear he wouldn’t make the team but the early release will help him find work elsewhere (via Twitter). Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle adds that there could be better opportunities for playing time elsewhere in the league (via Twitter).
  • Speaking of Brown, the Raiders could be in play for his services, according to Bill Williamson of ESPN (via Twitter). The Raiders were in play for him in free agency, and still have a need at the position.
  • The Dolphins went all in this offseason for Ndamukong Suh, and could sacrifice buying potential in future offseasons due to the amount of money they committed to the All-Pro defensive tackle. However, the future could still be bright if they can develop their young talent, as James Walker of ESPN notes that the team is rich with under-25 talent on the roster, ranking second in the NFL by Football Outsiders (subscription required). The Cowboys are the only team with better young talent.

    The nice thing for the Dolphins is that they also have their QB locked up long term. So when it comes time to navigate the salary cap and make tough decisions with their young talent, at least they’ll be able to plan around Tannehill instead of having to worry about fitting him into puzzle. The Suh megadeal was probably not the greatest decision in the world, but at the moment, things are looking up for Miami.

      That is true about the Dolphins. Suh was an over pay, but at the same time they needed to draw interest. The Cowboys…. umm…. way over rated as usual. They’re not even in the top 15 for young talent.
