Morning take: Mike Tomlin on Mendenhall

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

  • Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin says tailback Rashard Mendenhall should have thought twice about revealing his thoughts via Twitter on the death of Osama bin Laden and the events of 9/11.

Morning take: This is Tomlin's first public comments on the matter and he's in agreement with the majority. Mendenhall should have thought about the situation more in-depth before tweeting.

Morning take: Few players have a similar combination of size, power and athleticism. The Ravens are expected to make Ngata one of the NFL's highest-paid defenders and he is worth every penny.

Morning take: Mangini was very big on offseason workouts and minicamps during his tenure in Cleveland. So his take shouldn't be shocking to anyone.

Morning take: It may be a challenging position but one that has to excite Dalton. He's projected to be one of the few rookie starting quarterbacks in the NFL this season.
