Here are the most interesting stories Wednesday in the AFC North:
Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette believes there were three "obvious snubs" for the Pro Bowl, which include linebacker LaMarr Woodley, nose tackle Casey Hampton and defensive end Aaron Smith.
Morning take: "Obvious snubs" are strong words. Woodley has the best case of the three. Smith and Hampton are great players, but it's an uphill battle every year for 3-4 linemen to make it to Honolulu.
Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times profiles Baltimore Ravens tailback/fullback Le'Ron McClain's run from unknown to Pro Bowler.
Morning take: McClain runs extremely hard and has been a great story. He is one of several unsung heroes on Baltimore's team this season.
Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain Dealer scouts Sunday's "Battle of Ohio" between the Browns and Cincinnati Bengals.
Morning take: To the winner goes...a lesser draft pick!
According to Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com, receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh said he will make the Pro Bowl next year.
Morning take: Houshmandzadeh forgot to add "...in a different uniform."
