Morning take: Ed Reed's future

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

  • Baltimore Ravens Pro Bowl safety Ed Reed says he feels sluggish and is not sure how much longer he's going to play football.

Morning take: Reed is chasing that elusive Super Bowl ring and now appears to be on a year-to-year basis. Neck and hip ailments have bothered the safety in recent seasons, but he's back for 2011.

  • The District Attorney in Nevada will look into possible probation violations for Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam Jones following his recent arrest.

Morning take: For Jones' sake, he better be correct in claiming this was a wrongful arrest. Otherwise, Jones could face up to a year in jail for past violations, as well as a suspension from the NFL.

  • The Pittsburgh Steelers may be as much as $10 million over the cap once a new collective bargaining agreement is reached.

Morning take: The cap for 2011 is unknown, but the Steelers will be over. They have some tough decisions to free up money for draft picks and potential free agents.

Morning take: This is the fourth time the Cleveland Browns have organized player workouts, which should help a difficult transition. Colt McCoy is showing good leadership in what will be a huge season for the second-year quarterback.
