Morning take: James Harrison won't change

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

Morning take: Harrison has played one way his entire career -- and that's aggressive. He may lose some money, but it won't do him or the Steelers any good to play at three-quarter's speed.

  • Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam Jones is returning home to Atlanta to play the Falcons.

Morning take: Jones could play a bigger role this week, because starting cornerback Johnathan Joseph has an ankle injury. Falcons receiver Roddy White is already pumped to face Cincinnati's secondary.

  • Baltimore Ravens standouts Haloti Ngata and Michael Oher were both passed up by the Buffalo Bills.

Morning take: It's no secret that drafting poorly is a sure way to stay at the bottom of the NFL. The Ravens often take advantage of bad teams like Buffalo passing over quality players.

  • The status of receivers Josh Cribbs (concussion) and Mohamed Massaquoi (concussion) remain up in the air.

Morning take: The Browns will need all the help they can get against the reigning Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints. A return by either player would help Browns rookie quarterback Colt McCoy.
