Morning take: Will Stover return?
Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker
Here are the top stories Saturday in the AFC North:
- Mike Preston of the Baltimore Sun believes Matt Stover is "too good, too clutch" to remain off the Ravens' roster in 2009.
Morning take: With Baltimore's young kickers still learning, I wouldn't rule this out, either. It's somewhat telling that Stover and Ravens head coach John Harabugh remain in contact.
- Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports punter Daniel Sepulveda had additional knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus in March but is punting again in practice.
Morning take: Sepulveda raised some eyebrows when he still wasn't punting in prior practices this offseason. Now we know why.
- The Cleveland Browns added another offensive lineman, agreeing to terms with former Detroit Lions tackle George Foster, Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer writes.
Morning take: It appears coach Eric Mangini's strategy is to stockpile as many offensive linemen as possible and let the best five separate themselves this summer.
- Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer catches up with retired NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason, who says there's no reason the Bengals can't be successful this year.
Morning take: The Bengals' bandwagon is filling up fast, and there's not much room left. At this rate, will they really be "sleepers" in September?
