Here are the most interesting stories Friday morning in the AFC East:
Running back C.J. Spiller says the Buffalo Bills are close to being a title contender.
Morning take: There are a lot of good vibes coming out of that Bills locker room. But you hope this team doesn’t start believing in its own hype. Buffalo is not a Super Bowl contender but it can make some noise this season -- if the team stays focused.
New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis was voted the fifth-best player in the NFL by his peers.
Morning take: This is quite an honor for Revis, who is on his way to being an all-time great. It’s clear he has the respect of his fellow players.
Are Vince Wilfork and Brian Waters bargains for the New England Patriots?
Morning take: Yes, both players give you Pro Bowl production at a relatively good price. The Patriots front office knows what it is doing.
The Miami Dolphins promote Brian Gaine to assistant general manager.
Morning take: Gaine will work right under general manager Jeff Ireland in running the Dolphins. This is another step forward as the front office moves on from the Bill Parcells era.
