Here are the most interesting stories Thursday in the AFC East:
The Miami Dolphins have put slot receiver Devone Bess on the trading block.
Morning take: Miami is four deep at wide receiver and could use the extra pick in the NFL draft, which begins tonight, to help fill out another position. The Cleveland Browns reportedly are interested. If the value is right, I have no issue with this move.
The New York Jets have made no progress in trade talks for New Orleans Saints tailback Chris Ivory.
Morning take: This is a luxury move for New York. The team can use depth at tailback but is not looking for a starter. If the price is too high, the Jets can get an extra running back later in the draft.
Could the New England Patriots take Florida State cornerback Xavier Rhodes with the 29th overall pick?
Morning take: Rhodes would be solid value for New England. I would prefer the Patriots to draft a receiver, but cornerback would be the second or third position on my list.
Will the Buffalo Bills take Florida State quarterback E.J. Manuel with the No. 8 overall pick?
Morning take: I just don’t see this happening. Buffalo could take a quarterback high in the first round, which I think would be a mistake. But Ryan Nassib, Matt Barkley and Geno Smith appear more likely with the Bills' first pick than Manuel.
