Morning take: Woodley returns home
Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker
Here are the most interesting stories Thursday in the AFC North:
- With his Super Bowl win secured, Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley returned home to Saginaw, Mich., this week.
Morning take: It's always good to see players become heroes and role models in their hometowns.
- The Cleveland Browns are getting ready for the NFL combine.
Morning take: With the No. 5 overall pick, and not many picks after, it's important for the Browns to get this draft right. Rest assured, the Baltimore Ravens and Steelers will try to keep the gap as wide as possible.
- Speaking of the Ravens, they used their franchise tag for the second consecutive year on Pro Bowl defensive end/outside linebacker Terrell Suggs.
Morning take: The Ravens say their goal is give a long-term deal to Suggs. He won't be happy until then.
- Is tailback Cedric Benson the biggest priority for the Cincinnati Bengals?
Morning take: I'm not so sure the Bengals are convinced Benson is the sure-fire answer. It will probably come down to the price tag.
