AFC East Free Agency Primer. Is Tyrod Taylor Done In Buffalo?

Patriots: After Josh Mcdaniels slid back to New England the Patriots were left with no major holes on offense. What they must do is fix the defense. Malcolm Butler is gone, Belichick showed us that when he didn’t play him in the Super Bowl. The Patriots need a defensive star, they are renowned for being smart with money in free agency but with Brady turning 40, sorry Tom V Time but at some point everyone falls off, you have to maximize your Super Bowl window now. That sounds strange when talking about the Patriots but this team needs defensive help. Ziggy Ansah and Dontari Poe would both be excellent mid-range price options for the Patriots on defense.

 

Dolphins: Miami needs to figure out what they are doing at QB. It certainly looks like all signs point towards Jay Cutler retirement. Ryan Tannehill improved under Adam Gase but maybe you look outside and go after someone like Kirk Cousins. If you go after Cousins you figure to have a better chance at retaining Jarvis Landry who feels he needs to be paid big this offseason. One option, tag Landry and go after Cousins or a QB in the draft. If you stick with Tanehill you need to add pieces on offense specifically wide out. Eric Decker or Taylor Gabriel would be good players to snag, Decker worked under Gases offense in Denver and under the right system Gabriel can shine.

 

Jets: Another team in need of a QB. This team had a fantastic year considering the pieces they had this season. Unfortunately, it turns out Robby Anderson is a felon so that isn’t going to work out for the Jets and they will have to find more depth at wide out in the draft or free agency. Another thing this team could use would be a pass rusher.

 

Bills: The Tyrod Taylor experiment needs to end this offseason. Either stick with the guy or trade him, get him out of the building and go hard after Cousins or draft a QB. Case Keenum would be a perfect bridge QB here. Grab some wide outs as well, the defense was impeccably coached but they need a leader on the defensive side of the ball.
