The rest of the AFC East has woken up in the past few hours, with the New England Patriots trading a fifth round draft pick in 2013 for Albert Haynesworth. It is hard to criticize New England for taking a risk like this considering the success the Jets have had with players like say for example, Santonio Holmes…and look at him now.
The Miami Dolphins have also made some waves by trading for running back Reggie Bush. He is a nice gadget player, who can provide big plays if put in the right spot but still doesn’t give the Dolphins the type of every down running game they need to support Chad Henne, or even Kyle Orton if they trade for him. I do think Orton would be a nice upgrade for them at quarterabck if they could work out the details of the trade.
Buffalo has been relatively quiet. They acquired Tyler Thigpen to backup Ryan Fitzpatrick and brought back cornerback Drayton Florence, who the Jets had expressed some interest in, yet also lost linebacker Paul Posluszny to Jacksonville.
