Morning take: Lewis could return to Baltimore
Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker
Here are the most interesting stories Sunday in the AFC North:
- As his options begin to dwindle, free agent linebacker Ray Lewis could be leaning towards a return to the Baltimore Ravens.
Morning take: This is good news for a team that already lost two of its top in-house free agents in Bart Scott and Jason Brown. Lewis' return to the Ravens would bring back a lot of continuity to the defense.
- Free agent receiver and former Cincinnati Bengal T.J. Houshmandzadeh visited the Minnesota Vikings Saturday and could make a decision Sunday night.
Morning take: A lot of big names were moved in the first 48 hours of free agency. So it might be in Houshmandzadeh's best interest to decide soon before all of the big money is dried up.
- Speaking of players on the move, Pittsburgh Steelers free agent cornerback Bryant McFadden is scheduled to visit Sunday with the Arizona Cardinals.
Morning take: This could be a good landing spot for McFadden. Not only would he play for a winner--the reigning NFC champs--but he will get the type of big-money contract he can't get in Pittsburgh.
