Morning take: Ravens looking for WRs
Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker
Here are the most interesting stories Thursday in the AFC North:
- The Baltimore Ravens are trying out four receivers this weekend: Jerry Porter, Kelly Washington, Tab Perry and D.J. Hackett.
Morning take: After passing over receivers completely in this year's draft, the team should be able to find some veteran help in this group. It will be interesting to see which receiver has the best minicamp.
- The Cincinnati Bengals signed former Pro Bowl safety Roy Williams.
Morning take: Williams reunites with defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer in Cincinnati. Once one of the league's better safeties, the Bengals are hoping he has more left in the tank.
- The Cleveland Browns promoted George McDonald from quality control coach to the team's receiver coach.
Morning take: I thought it was a little strange that Cleveland would go this far into the offseason without a position coach. I guess it's a moot point now.
- Here is a breakdown of Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison's monster six-year contract.
Morning take: This looks more like a three- or four-year deal for Harrison. He gets most of his bonus money up front, which makes him happy. But the salaries are back loaded, which gives the team flexibility if he's no longer productive in the latter years.
