Morning take: Reshad Jones update

May, 21, 2013
Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday in the AFC East:
  • Updating a previous story, starting safety Reshad Jones reportedly changed his mind and plans to show up to the Miami Dolphins OTAs Tuesday. It was previously reported that he would not show unless there are discussions about a contract extension.
Morning take: Jones is still playing on his rookie contract and wants a raise in his final year. Miami spent a lot of money this offseason on other free agents and it will be interesting to see how the Dolphins handle Jones’ contract.
  • After successful arm surgery, New England Patriots Pro Bowl tight end Rob Gronkowski will decide in about a month whether to have back surgery.
Morning take: Gronkowski is on the mend and will need about 10 weeks to recover from his fourth arm surgery. The back is another issue but not as serious. The key is to get Gronkowski ready for the regular season.
  • New York Jets owner Woody Johnson says the team is in fact-finding mode with running back Mike Goodson.
Morning take: Goodson is in hot water following last week’s arrests. It’s not looking good for his situation, considering new general manager John Idzik must set a tone for the organization.
  • The Buffalo Bills are working rookie wide receiver Robert Woods on the outside and in the slot.
Morning take: Woods is an NFL-ready player who should contribute immediately for Buffalo. Expect Woods to see plenty of playing time, but his best position is probably outside.
