Here are the most interesting stories Friday in the AFC North:
- The Cleveland Browns claimed former New England Patriots linebacker and 2008 draft pick Bo Ruud off waivers.
Morning take: Patriots coach Bill Belichick gave up on Ruud after one year. Now Browns coach Eric Mangini wants to see if he can get something out of him.
- Cincinnati Bengals kicker Shayne Graham agreed to sign his one-year, $2.483 million franchise tender Thursday.
Morning take: With that salary, what happens if Graham misses his first chip shot next season?
- How many starting jobs are open for the Pittsburgh Steelers this year?
Morning take: Very few, if any. But there are some roles that need to be defined for the defending champs.
- Speaking of roles, here is a look at the receiver situation for the Baltimore Ravens.
Morning take: There's a lot of unproven depth behind the starters. Will someone, namely Demetrius Williams, step up?
