AFC East links: Bills get linebacker help

Buffalo Bills

The Bills have found their replacement for Paul Posluszny in the form of ex-Packers linebacker Nick Barnett.

Quarterback Tyler Thigpen is excited to be back on the same sideline as Chan Gailey.

Miami Dolphins

The Sun Sentinel details Brandon Marshall being diagnosed with borderline personality disorder.

Miami signed defensive tackle Ronald Fields to a deal on Sunday and also brought in former Giants center Shaun O’Hara for a visit.

New England Patriots

Albert Haynesworth made a positive impression during his first practice with the Patriots.

The Patriots and Matt Light have come to terms on a two-year deal.

New York Jets

Ian O'Connor of ESPNNewYork.com: "The Jets were embarrassed the other day when they lost Nnamdi Asomugha to the Philadelphia Eagles, this after asking just about everyone except Joe Namath and Don Maynard to restructure their deals to make Asomugha theirs. The rejection rocked the foundation of the Jets' program, the core belief that every free agent worth a damn was desperate to play for Rex Ryan. With the rest of the AFC surely mocking them in private, reveling in their misery, the Jets needed to reestablish their credibility as a preferred destination for the stars. Plaxico Burress gives them that credibility at the Giants' expense."

The New York Daily News' Mike Lupica says acquiring Burress is a win-win for the Jets.
