Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC North:
Now that new president Mike Holmgren wrapped up his first draft with the Cleveland Browns, did they make up ground in the division?
Morning take: Talent isn't everything, but Cleveland still trails the rest of the division in that department. Health and chemistry will be important.
The drafting of tight end Jermaine Gresham and receiver Jordan Shipley should help the Cincinnati Bengals' offense.
Morning take: The Bengals have struggled getting production in the middle of the field since losing T.J. Houshmandzadeh in free agency. That’s the area Gresham and Shipley did most of their damage in college.
The Baltimore Ravens signed two cornerbacks as undrafted rookie free agents.
Morning take: Considering health concerns in the secondary, I'm a bit surprised the Ravens didn't draft a corner. But they stayed true to their board to help other areas.
Former Pittsburgh Steelers guard Alan Faneca was shocked by his release from the New York Jets.
Morning take: The NFL is a harsh business. Faneca should find his third team soon, but don't expect a Pittsburgh reunion as the team has likely moved on.
