Morning take: Polamalu or Suggs?


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

  • Baltimore Ravens Pro Bowl linebacker/defensive end Terrell Suggs says Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu was the top player from Suggs' 2003 draft class.

Morning take: You have to appreciate Suggs' honesty. There are several great players from the '03 draft, including Suggs, but Polamalu has two rings and is making a strong case for the Hall of Fame.

Morning take: The Browns have a lot of needs, and in most cases, drafting a receiver this high is a bad idea. The defensive line needs an upgrade. But I also would understand Cleveland's want to help second-year quarterback Colt McCoy.

Morning take: For the second time this season I watched Ward on the show, and I was very impressed. Ward performed the rumba better than most people.

  • Is backup cornerback Adam Jones in line to be a starter for the Cincinnati Bengals next season?

Morning take: I would be surprised if the Bengals pay free agent Johnathan Joseph enough money to stay in Cincinnati. Jones showed flashes last year before suffering a season-ending neck injury, and the Bengals may feel he's ready to become the starter.
