Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC North:
Free agent receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh will take a little more time before making a decision. His options include the Minnesota Vikings, Seattle Seahawks or returning to the Cincinnati Bengals.
Morning take: The fact that Houshmandzadeh remains in Minneapolis could be a clue of where he's leaning. Of the three teams, that appears to be the most logical choice if "Housh" wants to join a playoff contender.
(Update: There have been some conflicting reports and it turns out Houshmandzadeh did leave Minnesota Sunday night.)
Following the signing of cornerback Domonique Foxworth, veteran Samari Rolle wants to be released from the Baltimore Ravens.
Morning take: Rolle, 32, sees the writing on the wall as Baltimore is getting younger in the secondary. The Ravens also would save more than $4 million off their cap, making his release likely.
The Cleveland Browns lost a potential target when cornerback Andre Goodman signed with the Denver Broncos.
Morning take: The Browns were rumored to be interested in talking with Goodman. Several days into free agency, Cleveland only traded one player (Kellen Winslow) for draft picks.
The Pittsburgh Steelers could lose receiver Nate Washington to the Tennessee Titans.
Morning take: This sounds like a good match for Washington, who would bring a needed deep threat to Nashville. Let's see if Tennessee will eventually close this deal.
