Morning take: Fixing Patriots' defense

February, 1, 2013
Here are the most interesting stories Friday in the AFC East: Morning take: I think better corners and safeties would do. New England’s front seven is solid and was ninth against the run. It was the NFL-high 74 passing plays of 20 yards or more that's an issue.
Morning take: New defensive coordinator Mike Pettine should be more concerned about running backs. Buffalo’s front seven was pushed around way too much by opponents last season.
  • Should the New York Jets go after New York Giants defensive end and free agent Osi Umenyiora?
Morning take: I’m skeptical of any big name coming to the Jets this offseason. Their cap is too tight to make a huge signing. New York has to release a lot of players to be able to sign Umenyiora.
Morning take: Jones, who came in at No. 40 in "Walker's Fab 40," had a career year that put him on the map. He’s a talented player who could lead Miami’s secondary for years to come.
