AFC East roster moves

The Miami Dolphins weren't the only team to make roster moves Tuesday. Both the New England Patriots and New York Jets both altered their roster with a series of transactions.

Starting with the Patriots, the reigning AFC champs signed free-agent running back Lex Hillard and released offensive lineman Matt Tennant. Meanwhile, the Jets surprising cut punter T.J. Conley and nose tackle Isaako Aaitui, the team announced.

Tuesday was an interesting day for roster moves. The Dolphins also released quarterback David Garrard, who was a projected starter before his knee injury this summer.
