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

Morning take: This would reunite Beck with Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron. It also makes for an interesting battle with Troy Smith for the No. 2 quarterback position.

Morning take: Veteran Jeremi Johnson was solid when he was healthy and in shape. An influx of young talent at the position should keep him motivated to compete this year and possibly get back to his old form.

Morning take: This is the time of year when unknown players emerge, and there are some pleasant surprises from this weekend such as second-year quarterback Dennis Dixon.

Morning take: I'm hearing good things so far from new coach Eric Mangini's practices. I'm told it's very organized, which the team hopes can translate on the field.
