Here are the most interesting stories Friday in the AFC East:
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell wants the Dolphins to stay in Miami.
Morning take: There's nothing to worry about for the next several years. Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has no intention of moving the team as long as he’s owner. But what happens when Ross doesn’t own the team is what should concern Dolphins fans.
The New York Jets will get their first glimpse of quarterback Geno Smith this weekend at rookie minicamp.
Morning take: This marks the start of the Geno Smith era in New York. Smith will compete for the starting job in Year 1. But regardless of the outcome, Smith will be the starter eventually in New York.
Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone says the offense will be able to play fast or slow this year.
