|ESPN.com: AFC North||[Print without images]|
Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker
Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC North:
Morning take: The common thread is they are all slightly undersized. But the Ravens have never been afraid to take undersized players as long as they can perform.
Morning take: Potentially. The Steelers still have a chance to re-sign pending free agent Bryant McFadden but have a contingency plan (Deshea Townsend, William Gay, the draft) if it doesn't work out.
Morning take: If 51 sacks last season and an elbow injury to Carson Palmer doesn't tell Cincinnati to get protection, nothing will.
Morning take: I'm not sure what to make of head coach Eric Mangini's constant hiring from the college ranks. There will be a lot of college coaches in Cleveland adjusting to dealing with pro players.
