Morning take: Bengals grab a punter
Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker
Here are the most interesting stories Saturday in the AFC North:
- Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer writes the Bengals acquired former Washington Redskins punter Ryan Plackenmeier off waivers.
Morning take: There was smoke this offseason that the Bengals were not happy with current punter, Kyle Larson. Now there's fire.
- CNN.com jabs the Cleveland Browns for getting rid of former coach Bill Belichick.
Morning take: Every once in a while this comes up locally or in the national media. With Belichick's success after coaching Cleveland, it's certainly fair game.
- Clifton Brown of the Sporting News believes free agency is the Baltimore Ravens' biggest obstacle.
Morning take: For now, that is correct. In the fall, I would say it's the Pittsburgh Steelers.
- Speaking of the Steelers, Bob Smizik of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says don't expect Plaxico Burress to return to Pittsburgh.
Morning take: The Steelers have been there and done that. They're probably the least likely team interested in a trade for Burress.
