The Biggest Upcoming Roster Decision For Each AFC East Team

Organized team activities are here, meaning most NFL teams have turned their attention away from upgrading their rosters and focusing on the team as it currently is. While a few players will signed, cut or traded before the preseason truly starts up, most of the rosters are set. 

But for each NFL team, there are still a few notable roster decisions that they'll need to make in the near future. That could be figure out who gets a contract extension, what to do with a particular players or addressing a major need that simply has to be taken care of. With that in mind, here are the biggest upcoming  roster decisions for each team in the AFC East. 

Buffalo Bills - Does Tyrod Taylor get an extension?

The Bills need to give out multiple contract extensions, ideally before the season ends. They've already taken care of Cordy Glenn which helps. CB Stephon Gilmore is going to get paid, but should he get a deal before Tyrod Taylor? The QB had a breakout season last year, but the Bills have made it clear they aren't totally convinced that Taylor is the long-term answer. He was impressive last year, but also battled injuries. He wants to make starting QB money, and could get a massive deal if he plays well in his contract year. But the Bills appear to worry about giving him a long-term deal. At some point they are going to have to decide if Taylor is just a stop-gap option or a franchise option. 

Miami Dolphins - What To Do With Reshad Jones And Suh?

Jones is currently on a holdout, as he has yet to report to minicamp. He won't report until he gets one either, reports the Miami Herald. Jones is in year three of a four year deal he signed, and he'll make over $7 million the next two years. But he wants a deal that pays him near $11 million, in line with the highest-paid players in the league. Will the Dolphins cave and give Jones a bigger deal? Or will they play hardball?

As for Suh, he's once again skipping OTAs to work out on his own. That's a common act from Suh, but it's upset the Dolphins' front-office. Much like he did during the 2015 season, Suh is doing what he wants. Will Miami force the league's highest-paid defensive player to do what the team wants?  

New England Patriots - Who gets an extension?

The Patriots are in a somewhat similar position to the Bills. Players need multiple extensions, and although it's not a QB, it's several key players. Dont'a Hightower, Jabaal Sheard, Sebastian Vollmer, Rob Ninkovich, Jonathan Cooper, Logan Ryan, Jamie Collins and restricted free agent Malcolm Butler are all player due for a new deal. The Pats can't extend everyone, and it's why they traded Chandler Jones, but who is going to get locked up before the start of the season? 

New York Jets - Who is the QB?

This might be the most obvious answer for any team in the NFL. Ryan Fitzpatrick remains unsigned, something WRs Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker aren't happy about. If the Jets don't bring back Fitzpatrick, they are stuck with Geno Smith, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg on the roster. We know Smith isn't the answer, while Petty still needs a ton of work. Playing at Baylor did not prepare him at all for reading NFL defenses. Hackenberg was a second round pick, but is he really ready? The answer should be resigning Fitzpatrick, but it's far from official yet.
