Morning take: Tomlinson on Rex Ryan

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

Morning take: Tomlinson said it put pressure on his team, and I agree. It looks more and more like the pending free agent won't be back in New York.

Morning take: It's going to be either Joe Philbin, Mike McCoy or Todd Bowles. Each candidate has strengths and question marks. We will have more on the search coming up next (hint, hint).

Morning take: Easley suffered from a heart condition that kept him out last season. But Buffalo needs more depth from its receivers, so Easley will get another chance.

Morning take: It's ironic because Law is exactly the type of player the Patriots are missing this postseason. A physical, shutdown corner on this year's team would give the defense a lot more flexibility.
