Morning take: Patriots add cornerback

Here are the most interesting stories Thursday in the AFC East:

Morning take: Cole adds a boost on special teams but not much in the secondary. New England still needs more depth in the defensive backfield.

Morning take: Moore might be taking the route of Dustin Keller in switching allegiances from the Jets to the rival Dolphins. The difference is that Miami has money to spend this year on free agents.

  • A long-term contract won't be an issue if the Jets trade Darrelle Revis to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Morning take: This looks like the most likely destination for Revis. But the Jets would prefer to get top draft picks for this year, to help the team immediately.

Morning take: Maybe in the second round. West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith appears to be the most likely target in the first round. If Buffalo can’t get Smith, signal-callers like Manuel, Ryan Nassib and Mike Glennon are targets in the second round.
