Post subject: AFC East roundup: notable post-cut additions Post Posted: Tue Sep 17, 2019 1:18 am
With a week to go before the NFL season kicks off two big things happen around the league. The first is that we see all the teams making cuts to get their rosters down to that magical 53 or even less. The second is that Youth Kyle Williams Jerseys , with so many cuts taking place around the league, the waiver wire goes crazy with teams picking up players just released hours earlier. This week on the AFC East roundup we will be looking at some interesting signings that the teams made while working their roster to 53. Buffalo BillsThe Bills made two interesting claims to note, adding two guys from division rival Kyle Williams Jerseys Stitched , New England. The first is cornerback Ryan Lewis who was on the Patriots practice squad last season. The six foot corner is hoping to find his spot in a secondary that has been shaky at times in the preseason. The other claim was Corey Bojorquez who is expected to be the starting punter after the team released Colton Schmidt. Bojorquez did not have a single punt in the preseason but he does kick with his left foot which sometimes proves challenging for returners. Buffalo is hoping to get a similar magic like the Patriots do when they take on former Bills.New England PatriotsThe Pats tried to bolster their wide reciever group singing Amara Darboh and Chad Hansen. They have been looking for new threats on the outside after Erik Decker announced his retirement earlier in the week. Both players were drafted in 2017 and are both 6’2” adding some size for Tom Brady to look at. Something to note that even though he has not been signed, there has been rumors of the team targeting former Bill, Brandon Reilly which would drive Bills fans crazy Youth Doug Flutie Jerseys , especially after the success of Chris Hogan. New York JetsThe Jets decided to stay in house with their roster, electing to just make the necessary roster moves to get to 53 without signing or claiming any outside players. All ten of the players on the practice squad where also on the team at some point in the offseason so New York was confident with all of the players they brought in during the offseason. After trading Teddy Bridgewater earlier in the week, it will be the Sam Darnold show with Josh McCown as the backup.Miami DolphinsMiami added two players to their rosters off waivers in quarterback Luke Falk and receiver Tanner McEvoy. Falk was a sixth-round pick of the Titans this year after playing three seasons at Washington State. McEvoy has been on the Seahawks the last two seasons after coming out as an undrafted free agent. A surprising cut from the team was tackle Sam Young. The nine-year veteran was looking to have a solid role on the team but may return after Week 1 when veteran’s salaries are not fully guaranteed. In a report from Rob Demovsky at ESPN Doug Flutie Jerseys Stitched , the Buffalo Bills have conducted an interview for one of their coaching vacancies. In an article primarily focused on the Green Bay Packers hiring Nathaniel Hackett (yes, THAT Nathaniel Hackett) to be their next offensive coordinator, Demovsky tosses in that Joe Philbin has interviewed with the Buffalo Bills and two other teams. The report does not indicate which position the Bills were looking at Philbin for. Currently the Bills still have vacancies for their special-teams coordinator Youth Jim Kelly Jerseys , wide-receiver coach and offensive-line coaching positions. Aside from looking a lot like the guy who played The Devil in Constantine, Bills fans should remember Philbin’s stint as the head coach of the Miami Dolphins from 2012 to 2015. Philbin was most recently with the Green Bay Packers as their offensive coordinator and interim head coach after Mike McCarthy was let go mid-season. Along with that experience, Philbin has worked with the Indianapolis Colts as an assistant head coach and offensive-line coach (2016 and 2017). Philbin has extensive experience with the offensive line Jim Kelly Jerseys Stitched , working in Green Bay from 2003 to 2011, mostly with the lineman. It seems like a safe bet Philbin is on the Bills’ radar to remake the offensive line after they missed out on Sean Kugler.
