Here are the most interesting stories Friday in the AFC East:
After trading for cornerback Aqib Talib, the New England Patriots are without a draft choice in the fourth, fifth and sixth rounds in 2013.
Morning take: New England traded those picks for Talib, Albert Haynesworth and Chad Johnson. Haynesworth and Johnson didn’t pan out. The Patriots hope the third time is the charm.
The Buffalo Bills welcome back two starters on the offensive line for Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans.
Morning take: Buffalo will need it -- Houston’s dynamic defensive line, led by J.J. Watt, could give the Bills offense a lot of trouble.
Will New York Jets coach Rex Ryan ever figure out the Mark Sanchez-Tim Tebow dilemma?
Morning take: That is Ryan’s job. So far, Ryan’s methods aren’t working. Sanchez isn’t consistent and Tebow is a non-factor on offense.
Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey and defensive end Cameron Wake are getting All-Pro recognition.
Morning take: Both players are performing at a Pro Bowl level. Pouncey and Wake are two reasons the Dolphins (4-3) are in playoff contention.
