Here are the most interesting stories Wednesday morning in the AFC East:
Is this a make-or-break year for Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross?
Morning take: Dolphins fans booed Ross at the regular-season finale. But I don't know if you can ever have a make-or-break year as an owner. Ross is the boss and can do whatever he wants. But it is important to get this coaching hire correct.
New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez says he will make things work with No. 1 receiver Santonio Holmes.
Morning take: Sanchez and Holmes have no choice. The pair will be together for at least one more season. If things don't work out in 2012, both of their jobs with the Jets may be in jeopardy.
Buffalo Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick finally shaved his beard.
Morning take: Do you like "Fitz" with or without the beard? I think I'm leaning towards the beard.
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady says the Jets will be back.
Morning take: The Patriots' sweep contributed to New York's demise. Brady says the Jets won't lose any confidence and I think he's right.
