Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday in the AFC North:
The Pittsburgh Steelers have to decide soon if Dennis Dixon or Charlie Batch will be the No. 2 quarterback behind starter Ben Roethlisberger.
Morning take: Dixon is younger, and the ability to make plays with his feet adds another dimension to Pittsburgh's offense. That may give him the edge.
The Cleveland Browns claim former Baltimore Ravens guard/tackle Oniel Cousins off waivers.
Morning take: The fall has been fast for Cousins. He was Baltimore's starting right tackle a few weeks ago, then a right guard and now he's with Cleveland. Cousins has a shot to replace Eric Steinbach, who is out with a back injury.
Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron is preaching patience with rookie receiver Torrey Smith.
Morning take: The second-round draft pick has had some drops in the preseason. Baltimore hopes Smith can put those behind him and contribute.
New Cincinnati Bengals corner Kelly Jennings will add speed to their secondary.
Morning take: Jennings will play right away behind starters Leon Hall and Nate Clements. Pass defense has been an issue for the Bengals in the preseason.
