SiriusXM NFL Radio continued on its NFL Training Camp Tour, this time bringing listeners interviews and updates from the AFC East. Here is what they learned:

New England Patriots  

Running back LeGarrette Blount has no doubt that Jimmy Garoppolo is fully capable of filling in for Tom Brady at quarterback.

“He’s playing up under the greatest quarterback, man, you can’t do nothing but learn from him,” Blount said. “I feel like if he goes in there, he’s going to be productive and think he’s going to be good. I don’t think he’s going to go out there and do anything crazy, I think he’s going to go out there and do exactly what they tell him to do.”

The Patriots have a lot of young players in camp this year, and coach Bill Belichick had a lot of positive things to say about them.

New York Jets 

Geno Smith has learned to just leave turnovers in the past, and try to go out and execute on the next possession.

“I’ve had a number of turnovers, and I’ve had times where they stuck with me,” Smith said. “I realized if it happens, it happens. You can’t take it back, go back in the past and try and redo it. You’ve got to make it up the next play, you’ve got to play smart the next play, you’ve got to play better the next play.”

Buffalo Bills

New head coach Rex Ryan is going to run a competition for the starting quarterback position, and believes in the Bills’ ability to win in 2015.

“It’s going to be a thorough evaluation and, like I said, we might not name a starter officially until we have to,” Ryan said. “All we want to do is win. Not only is this team going to be revved up to go, so is our fan base, and it’s going to be fun to watch.”

Miami Dolphins

Defensive end Cameron Wake is both frustrated and encouraged by barely missing the postseason.

“The last few years it’s been one game or two where had we won this game, or beat the last team or whatever it may be, we’d be in the postseason and for whatever reason it hasn’t happened, and that’s frustrating,” Wake said. “At the same token, being so close is kind of encouraging knowing that it’s not like we have to just completely overhaul the entire team.”

Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh spoke about mentoring younger players and sharing his knowledge of the game.

“Leadership can be seen in many different ways and I’m the type of person, I like to lead by actions,” Suh said. “I’m more of a guy that’ll pull somebody to the side, have a conversation with them and tell them my experiences.”
