Morning take: Mason update

Here are the most interesting stories Sunday in the AFC North:

  • Jamison Hensley of the Baltimore Sun reports receiver Derrick Mason is no longer a top priority following the trade for Anquan Boldin.

Morning take: Receiver suddenly isn't as big a need for Baltimore. But getting Mason, or another solid No. 2, would help complete the offense.

  • Terry Pluto of the Cleveland Plain Dealer writes Browns defensive tackle Shaun Rogers could be on the move.

Morning take: Rogers is the only dominant defensive player on Cleveland's roster. So the Browns should be very careful unless it's an offer they can't refuse.

Morning take: This is a look to improve depth in case Limas Sweed doesn't overcome his struggles.

  • According to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer, standing pat early shouldn't be a surprise for Bengals fans.

Morning take: I agree that Bengals fans shouldn't be shocked. When was the last time Cincinnati went crazy with free-agent spending?
