AFC East links: Grading the Patriots

Buffalo Bills

Brad Smith is trying his hand at something new this offseason.

Ryan Nassib is just one of several quarterbacks the Bills are looking at as the draft draws closer.

Miami Dolphins

Watching fellow 2012 draft picks Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson reach the postseason as rookies serves as motivation for Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill. “I’m confident in what we can do here in Miami going into the future,” said Tannehill. “I think going into the year outside people didn’t really have any expectations for us but we had expectations for ourselves. Obviously, we came up short but we were right there down to the end. We wish we could have won some of those close games early on in the year that we felt like we should have won, so moving forward we’re excited about the opportunity we have and the guys that we have on the team.”

Is it time for Miami to part ways with defensive end Jared Odrick? The answer is yes, according to The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero.

New England Patriots
