Wake-up: Browns continue to look at QBs

A programming note: I'm attending a summit for ESPN.com bloggers in Bristol, Conn. (I'm representing the AFC), and will be in meetings all day. While I won't be able to react to news as quickly as I would like, I will have blog posts throughout the day, including my weekly column that should be posted before noon. I will touch base either late Wednesday or early Thursday. Here's the wake-up call ...

RAVENS: Baltimore recently had a pre-draft visit with Alabama right tackle D.J. Fluker, according to The Baltimore Sun. He is projected to be gone before the Ravens are on the clock for the last pick in the first round. West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin is scheduled to attend the Ravens' local pro day workout, The Sun reported. Austin, who is also expected to go earlier in the first round, went to high school in Baltimore.

BENGALS: Tommy Urbanski, who was paralyzed in a 2007 strip-club shooting that was sparked by cornerback Adam Jones, told the New York Daily News that he has yet to receive any money from last year's $13.4 million judgment. Urbanski has filed papers in Ohio to seek 25 percent of Jones' earnings this year. Jones, who re-signed with the Bengals last month, will earn $750,000 in 2013.

STEELERS: Georgia outside linebacker Jarvis Jones, who has been linked to Pittsburgh in the first round, had a pre-draft visit with the Steelers on Tuesday, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Jones is an explosive pass-rusher who could fill James Harrison's spot on the defense. There is concern whether Jones has stenosis, which is the narrowing of the spinal column. His medical condition, along with a disappointing pro-day performance, may cause Jones to fall to the Steelers at No. 17.

BROWNS: Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib will have a private workout with the Browns on Thursday, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Head coach Rob Chudzinski and offensive coordinator Norv Turner are scheduled to attend. Nassib is the latest quarterback prospect to get an up-close look by the Browns, who have the No. 6 overall pick. The Browns have a private workout scheduled with Florida State's E.J. Manuel on Friday and are expected to have one with West Virginia's Geno Smith. Chief executive officer Joe Banner previously said taking a quarterback early in the draft is not the team's focus.
