Morning take: Oher in contract talks
Here are the top stories Thursday in the AFC North:
- BaltimoreRavens.com is reporting the team and first-round pick Michael Oher began preliminary contract negotiations.
Morning take: There shouldn't be much concern for a holdout situation in Baltimore. It's the other first-round tackle (Andre Smith) in the division with a much larger pay scale fans should worry about.
- According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was seen limping in practice Wednesday.
Morning take: It appears to be a minor tweak of the left knee. But when it's the two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback, every nick is a concern.
- From the Cincinnati Enquirer, Bengals receiver Chris Henry is turning the corner for the best.
Morning take: I've talked to Henry several times in the past year, and he appears to be getting his priorities in order. Henry also is in an important contract year.
- According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Browns and Indians are teaming up this summer to sell suite packages to see both teams.
Morning take: With the economy and two struggling teams, it's no surprise the Browns and Indians are having a hard time selling luxury suites. Winning is the quickest way to change this, but perhaps this pairing could also help.
