Here are the most interesting stories Thursday in the AFC North:
Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed responds to his No. 5 ranking on the NFL Network's top 100, which was voted by the players.
Morning take: Reed was rated one spot ahead of Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu. I wanted to stay away from another "Troy Reed" debate this week. But feel free to dig in.
Speaking of the Steelers, they continue to keep their options open for training camp.
Morning take: As we mentioned Wednesday, each day without a collective bargaining agreement makes it tough for an off-site training camp. The Steelers trained at St. Vincent College for 45 consecutive years, but the streak is in doubt with the NFL lockout.
Will quarterback Jake Delhomme become a cap casualty for the Cleveland Browns?
Morning take: Unless the Browns want to pay $5.4 million for a third-string quarterback, I don't see how Delhomme can return under his current deal.
Cincinnati Bengals receiver Terrell Owens wants to do a television sitcom loosely based on his life.
Morning take: Owens has his eye on his next career, which is commendable. Many players struggle in their next phase of life, but acting could fill that void for Owens.
