Morning take: Another Bengal arrest

Here are the most interesting stories in the AFC North:

Morning take: Here's the same response I gave to the others.

  • Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed, who contemplated retirement, recently had hip surgery and will not participate at this weekend's minicamp.

Morning take: The Ravens are confident that Reed is returning and didn’t alter their draft plans, which is further proof of that.

  • Pittsburgh Steelers linebackers coach Keith Butler has a lot of talent to work with.

Morning take: I'm still a bit baffled why Pittsburgh drafted two OLBs in the first four rounds last month. But Butler should definitely be happy about it.

  • Here is more info on Cleveland Browns rookie safety and fifth-round pick Larry Asante.

Morning take: Asante worked his way up from junior college to Nebraska, where he became one of the Huskers' top defenders. The Browns hope he continues to improve.
