Morning take: Tomlin gets extension

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

Morning take: After much speculation, the Steelers made a statement with this extension. We will have more on Tomlin coming up.

  • Despite making his first Pro Bowl last season, Baltimore Ravens tailback Ray Rice still feels underrated.

Morning take: To most casual football fans, it takes multiple Pro Bowls to get national recognition. Rice is just scratching the surface. Therefore, barring injury, he could be in for another big year.

Morning take: The Bengals have depth with Bernard Scott and Brian Leonard. Perhaps they can fill in, if needed. But Benson would obviously be missed.

Morning take: Cleveland has a good mix of runners. Could this be the formula to dig out the basement of the division?
