Morning take: Ravens prep for free agency

2/20/2011

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

Morning take: The Ravens made a big trade to acquire receiver Anquan Boldin last offseason. Will Baltimore make another splash this year?

  • Cincinnati Bengals receiver and pending free agent Terrell Owens says something is "not right" with his soon-to-be former team.

Morning take: This has not been a good offseason for the Bengals. Quarterback Carson Palmer wants out, the team fired its offensive coordinator and various players have lashed out about the franchise.

  • With the departure of Frank Summers and possible departure of Mewelde Moore, are the Pittsburgh Steelers thinning at running back?

Morning take: I like the combination of Rashard Mendenhall and a developing Isaac Redman in Pittsburgh. Perhaps finding a scat back to replace Moore's role would be needed in the draft. But it's not a necessity.

  • Can Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy compare to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers?

Morning take: Let's not start making these comparisons. Both will run a West Coast offense and no one does it better right now than Rodgers. Playing at such a consistently high level is something McCoy can aspire to.

Get ready. The first installment of "Walker's Fab 40" is coming up next.
