Morning take: EJ Manuel aims high

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

  • Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback EJ Manuel plans to continue to work hard during this off time before training camp.

Morning take: Manuel is behind veteran Kevin Kolb in the quarterback race. The rookie will have to do all he can to master Buffalo’s offense and put in the work before he returns to the Bills on July 28.

  • Denver Broncos receiver Wes Welker will be out for revenge in Week 12 against the New England Patriots.

Morning take: This should be a marquee game in the AFC late in the season. But there’s a lot of football to play before both teams get to that point.

  • New Miami Dolphins right tackle Tyson Clabo is trying to get acquainted to his new team.

Morning take: Clabo was released by the Atlanta Falcons this offseason, which opened the door for Miami. The Dolphins needed an offensive tackle, and Clabo has plenty of starting experience.

Morning take: Ryan is in a must-win year and being extra aggressive is one of the few ways he can try to save his job. But talent is the biggest issue, and the Jets can't fix that in one season.
