Here are the most interesting stories Friday in the AFC North:
With Carson Palmer's situation in flux, should the Cincinnati Bengals look to Philadelphia Eagles backup quarterback Kevin Kolb?
Morning take: The Bengals will have to explore options eventually if Palmer doesn't change his stance leading up to the draft. Jay Gruden wants to run a West Coast offense, which is the same system Kolb runs in Philadelphia.
Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert says finishing second isn't good enough.
Morning take: The expectation for Pittsburgh is to win championships. It's an extremely high bar, but the Steelers are one of the few NFL franchises which truly abides by it.
Will the Baltimore Ravens find linebacker Ray Lewis' eventual successor in this draft?
Morning take: That's easier said than done, but Lewis won't play forever. The Ravens have to be prepared for the day their leader retires.
Is Georgia receiver A.J. Green a good fit for the Cleveland Browns?
Morning take: Green, tailback Peyton Hillis and quarterback Colt McCoy sound like a good nucleus for rookie head coach Pat Shurmur to build his offense. But should Cleveland ignore other needs? I'm torn on this topic.
