Here are the most interesting stories Wednesday morning in the AFC East:
New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora hinted that a lack of distractions help keep them on top of the Jets.
Morning take: Distractions are hard to avoid in New York. But it does seem like the Jets are more in the headlines for things not pertaining to the field. Winning is what matters in the end, and the Giants do it more than the Jets.
New Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman will play an important role this season.
Morning take: Sherman has a quarterback competition and questions at receiver. It's a tough job that probably won't all come together in one year.
Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams (foot) is back in practice on a limited basis.
Morning take: The Bills need Williams in September, not June. So it's wise for Buffalo to take its time with one of its best players.
Former New England Patriots running back Kevin Faulk hopes to return.
Morning take: Faulk may be on the shelf unless there is an injury. The reigning AFC champs are going younger at the position and will watch to see if those players produce.
