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

  • Several members of the Pittsburgh Steelers, including coach Mike Tomlin, were on hand for the University of Texas pro day this week.
Morning take: Texas cornerback Aaron Williams is the one prospect I keep hearing with Pittsburgh. He's physical and aggressive, which fits in well with the Steelers' defense. Cornerback also is a huge need for Pittsburgh.
Morning take: The Browns continue to show interest in quarterbacks. I'm convinced they will take one at some point in the draft to try to develop, despite their confidence in starter Colt McCoy.

  • The Baltimore Ravens also have taken a closer look at Iowa quarterback Ricky Stanzi.
Morning take: The Ravens do not have a backup quarterbacks under contract and could take one in the middle or later rounds. Baltimore also needs to sign a veteran, which is what it did last year with Marc Bulger.

  • Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Dhani Jones is auditioning to become the voice of the Aflac duck.
Morning take: Jones has always been interested in things a little outside the box. If Chad Ochocinco can try his luck at soccer and Tom Zbikowski can box this offseason, why not commercials for Jones?
