Here are the most interesting stories Wednesday in the AFC East:
Free-agent tailback Cedric Benson said the New York Jets are one of several teams that have shown interest in him.
Morning take: Benson, 30, would fit New York's ground-and-pound style. But age and off-the-field issues make him a risky investment beyond one year. Benson could get a call from teams after there is an injury.
The Buffalo Bills and Erie County are expected to miss their goal of reaching an agreement before training camp.
Morning take: I wouldn't hit the panic button just yet. The stadium lease isn’t up until next year. Often, a new contract doesn’t get done until it has to.
The Miami Dolphins have a deep backfield this season.
Morning take: Reggie Bush, Daniel Thomas and rookie Lamar Miller could make a nice trio. But expect defenses to stack the box against the run to see if Miami’s quarterbacks can successfully pass the ball.
Here are key dates upcoming for the New England Patriots.
Morning take: The big date is Aug. 31. That is when teams have to make their final 53-man roster. New England has a talented roster and a lot of tough decisions to make.
