Morning take: Bengals' wide receivers


Here are the most interesting stories Friday in the AFC North:

Morning take: The top four receivers of Chad Ochocinco, Antonio Bryant, Jordan Shipley and Andre Caldwell are in. From there, it’s anyone's guess.

  • Pittsburgh Steelers backup defensive lineman Nick Eason is targeting training camp for his return from appendix surgery.

Morning take: The report says Eason lost 28 pounds, which he will certainly need to gain back to play defensive line in a 3-4 scheme.

  • The Baltimore Ravens signed veteran safety Ken Hamlin Thursday but was turned down after offering cornerback Walt Harris a one-year deal.

Morning take: I'm not sure what happened in this case. But usually with players it comes down to money or possibly a better opportunity elsewhere.

  • The Cleveland Browns are expected to take the field for training camp on July 31.

Morning take: This camp will have several key position battles. It will also be interesting to see how much the Browns have improved.
