Morning take: Dolphins draft options

Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday morning in the AFC East:

  • If the Miami Dolphins can’t draft a quarterback, where should they go with the No. 8 or No. 9 pick?

Morning take: If the team doesn’t trade up for a quarterback, I think Miami has the luxury to take the best available player. It can come at right tackle, receiver, or safety among others positions.

Morning take: New England does have a different look about the team in the playoffs. According to this ESPN readers' poll, the Patriots are now the Super Bowl favorites. Agree or disagree?

  • New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning joked that it would be fun to have brother Peyton Manning on the neighboring New York Jets.

Morning take: New York is the one city big enough to handle both Mannings. But at this point Peyton Manning landing with the Jets doesn’t seem likely.

Morning take: Dareus had a solid first season and will only get better. Dareus probably will move back to defensive end once former Pro Bowl nose tackle Kyle Williams returns.
