AFC News

Not all of this is exactly hot off the press, but I figured I'd do a roundup of some significant events in the AFC.  I know most of us have been focused on Miami and how their newcomers have come along, but there is a few interesting things going on with some other competitive teams.

Pat White has returned to training camp for the Miami Dolphins.  It is still unknown what the personal reasons were for his absence.

Laveranues Coles has returned to the New York Jets.  It's uncertain how this may play out as they already have Brad Smith as the #4 WR.  Coles said the job may only last four weeks into the season until Santonio Holmes returns from injury.

Jets RB Joe McKnight failed his conditioning test and has been placed on the PUP list.  This is a bad start for the rookie who was horrible in OTA drills.

Mark Brunell has signed a two-year contract with the Jets.  This leaves the future of Kellen Clemens in doubt.

The Jets general manager, Mike Tannenbaum, received an extension through 2014.  The Jets also extended the contract of Dunkin Donuts' number one customer.

David Patten of the New England Patriots announced his retirement today.  Derrick Burgess has not shown up at New England's training camp yet as he too contemplates retirement.  This would leave the Patriots thin at OLB.  They've already released Shawn Crable.

Aaron Schobel is reconsidering retirement and believes he's leaning towards returning to the BillsTim Graham of ESPN wonders if this is a good idea.

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed Flozell Adams and will move him to right tackle.  This shores up their offensive line after Willie Colon tore his achilles tendon.

Domonique Foxworth, the Ravens top CB, tore his ACL on the first day of training camp and will miss the 2010 season.  Baltimore's second and third CBs, Fabian Washington and Lardarius Webb, are both recovering from a torn ACL.  Webb is still wearing a brace on his knee.  Free agent pickup, Walt Harris, was also placed on the PUP to start training camp.  This does not bode well for a team with high hopes and Ed Reed's uncertain status makes the secondary a big question mark going into the season.

Runningback JJ Arrington of the Denver Broncos was traded to the Philadelphia EaglesIs Brian Westbrook in Denver's plans?

McNeil back in camp?  Bill Williamson of ESPN reports Marcus McNeil may reach an agreement with the San Diego Chargers.
