Morning take: Carter returns to Washington

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

  • New England Patriots defensive end Andre Carter is excited to play his former team: the Washington Redskins.

Morning take: Carter gets a return trip to Washington and will be excited for this game. He’s quietly been one of the best free-agent additions for New England in a class that included flops Albert Haynesworth and Chad Ochocinco.

  • Why were the Buffalo Bills reportedly interested in Green Bay Packers backup Graham Harrell?

Morning take: I'm not sure about this one. Buffalo probably was just looking for depth behind Ryan Fitzpatrick and took a look at Green Bay's practice squad. But it's interesting nonetheless.

Morning take: This is not a good sign for offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer. The Jets have not performed well offensively and wants to have another experienced voice involved.

Morning take: With names like Kyle Orton, David Garrard and Carson Palmer being mentioned, who would have thought the best quarterback for the Dolphins this year was the No. 2 guy already on the roster? It's a great story, but will it continue in Miami beyond this season?
