Morning take: Chad Johnson's new commercial
Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker
Here is your one-stop shopping around the AFC North:
- Chick Ludwig of the Dayton Daily News is a fan of Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Johnson's latest Reebok commercial. It shows Johnson hitchhiking on a dirt road in an effort to get to training camp.
Morning take: If Johnson had his druthers, that car would take him somewhere other than Georgetown, Ky.
- As you can read here and here, reports out of Baltimore state that training camp this year under Ravens rookie head coach John Harbaugh will be much different than the easy-going Brian Billick.
Morning take: In one year, the Ravens went from a summer country-club setting to running a boot camp. Ouch!
- Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal says an annual staple is missing from Cleveland Browns training camp this year: a quarterback controversy.
Morning take: Not if it were up to Browns fans. But debating the merits of Derek Anderson versus Brady Quinn is a vast improvement of the days of Tim Couch vs. Kelly Holcomb or Trent Dilfer vs. Charlie Frye.
