Morning take: Rooneys to keep Steelers

Here are the most interesting stories Thursday in the AFC North:

  • The NFL approved the sale of shares of the Pittsburgh Steelers to Dan and Art Rooney II, ending several months of ownership uncertainty.

Morning take: This is great news for the Steelers and the NFL. The Rooneys are an important and influential part of the league and deserve to remain invested.

Morning take: Goodell said it was "very good use of instant replay." We believe it was the exact opposite.

Morning take: With upcoming games against the Cleveland Browns (4-10) and Kansas City Chiefs (2-12), Ocho Cinco could be correct.

Morning take: ACL injuries can take anywhere from six months to a year, so there are no guarantees when Heiden will be ready. It will be interesting to see if his questionable status affects the Browns' offseason plans for starting tight end Kellen Winslow Jr.
