Here are the most interesting stories Wednesday in the AFC North:
Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey is taking a leadership role on the offensive line.
Morning take: Pouncey is already the team's best offensive lineman in his second season. But the Steelers need to surround him with other pieces to make the unit complete.
Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti says the team is still hunting for free agents.
Morning take: The top players are signed, but there are still several players around who may help a team. Look for Baltimore to make another small push once Haloti Ngata's extension frees up cap room.
Are the Cincinnati Bengals setting up for another 4-12 season?
Morning take: The vibes in Cincinnati are not good after an abysmal start to the preseason. But it's too early for any team to hit the panic button.
Cleveland Browns linebacker Titus Brown is patiently waiting for his opportunity.
Morning take: Brown had the big fumble return for a touchdown last week against the Green Bay Packers. Brown played in Cleveland under Romeo Crennel and Eric Mangini. Now, Brown hopes to impress rookie head coach Pat Shurmur.
