PITTSBURGH -- As long as there are no weather delays, I am flying back to Baltimore this morning to catch the final day of the Ravens' mandatory minicamp. That will wrap up my "three camps in three days" tour. I actually did need a wake-up call to make sure I got to the airport on time this morning. Now, here's your wake-up call ...

RAVENS: Coach John Harbaugh said Terrell Suggs "looks tremendous." Suggs, who couldn't train last offseason because of an Achilles injury, has put a lot of work into his workout regimen this year. "The goal was to train so that you can be the best player for your team, for your organization and for a city that's given you so much," Suggs said, via The Baltimore Sun. "I would have to say that the organization and the fans have really been patient with me, especially coming off an injury. So I really wanted to show them the player that I really am."

BENGALS: Tight end Orson Charles has been moved to fullback during the Bengals' offseason workout program. With Chris Pressley out with a quad injury, John Conner was the only fullback on the roster before Charles' position switch. “I'm just embracing it,” Charles told The Cincinnati Enquirer. “The more things I can do the more valuable I can be. At the end of the day, I just want to be on an NFL roster.” The Bengals have plenty of depth at tight end with Jermaine Gresham, Tyler Eifert and Alex Smith.

STEELERS: Like defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau, safety Troy Polamalu isn't ready to think about retirement yet. “I don't look beyond tomorrow's practice," Polamalu told The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "I hope I'm not scratching and clawing for a year (hanging on). I hope I can call it quits when I know it's time. But no, we don't talk about.” Polamalu, 32, is signed through the 2014 season. He is scheduled to make $7.5 million in 2013 and $8.25 million in 2014.

BROWNS: The Browns are among the teams that have expressed interest in Vonta Leach, the Pro Bowl fullback's agent told a Houston television station. Leach was cut Tuesday by the Ravens after the sides couldn't agree to a restructured deal. The Houston Texans, New York Giants and Kansas City Chiefs are also in the mix for Leach, who visited the Miami Dolphins on Wednesday. The Browns are in need of an established lead blocker for Trent Richardson. Owen Marecic, the only pure fullback on the roster, was benched last season.
