Earlier this morning, we looked at some rumblings out of New England. Let’s now take a look at what is happening with the other three AFC East teams…
- The Bills announced that offensive coordinator Nate Hackett will return to the coach’s box during games (via ESPN’s Mike Rodak Twitter). The coach’s presence of the field was for former starter EJ Manuel‘s benefit.
- The Bills sale to Terry and Kim Pegula is expected to be approved later this week, writes Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com.
- Dolphins defensive end Derrick Shelby was arrested Saturday in Fort Lauderdale, writes Omar Kelly and Brett Clarkson of the Sun Sentinel. The player’s agent, Daniel Rosenberg, says reports of the player resisting arrest are not true. “Derrick maintains his innocence,” said Rosenberg. “There’s a lot of conflicting information about his arrest.”
- The New York Daily News’ Manish Mehta attributes all of the Jets woes to general manager John Idzik. The writer’s criticism stems from the GM’s poor personnel decisions and mismanagement of the cap.
- ESPN.com’s Rich Cimini didn’t mince words when discussing recently-released Jets rookie Jalen Saunders. The writer refers to it as a “whiff for the ages,” especially considering the wideout talent in this past year’s draft.
