Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC East:
Can the Buffalo Bills afford to pass on West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith at No. 8 overall?
Morning take: I’ve said all offseason there isn’t a quarterback in this draft I would take in the top 10. However, desperate times call for desperate measures, and the Bills find themselves with only Tarvaris Jackson as the potential starter. If the top-rated quarterback is on the board, the Bills have to consider it based simply on need.
The New England Patriots signed free-agent offensive tackle Will Svitek.
Morning take: This is an insurance move if Sebastian Vollmer doesn’t re-sign. Svitek has experience on the left and right side and offers flexibility.
New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow is generating interest from the Orlando Predators in the Arena Football League.
Morning take: We haven’t had any Tim Tebow news in a while in the AFC East blog. So I thought I'd add this in there.
Former Miami Dolphins linebacker Kevin Burnett signs with the Oakland Raiders.
Morning take: This is not at all surprising. Burnett was released in Miami because former Raider Philip Wheeler signed with the Dolphins. This was simply a swap of player.
