Here is a look at some of the interesting stories around the AFC North:
Walker's take: I commend Schmuck for presenting the other side in what's become a fast-growing fantasy in Baltimore. This column won't be popular with Ravens fans, but it is thoughtful and insightful.
- Peter Schmuck of the Baltimore Sun writes an intriguing column outlining why the Ravens should not consider quarterback Brett Favre if he becomes available. Two of the biggest reasons are cap room and rookie head coach John Harbaugh trying to start anew.
Walker's take: A lot of teams (including Baltimore and the Cleveland Browns) haven't signed a majority of its picks. No need to hit the panic button just yet.
- The Cincinnati Bengals have yet to sign any of their 10 draft picks, with the report date for training camp looming on July 27.
Walker's take: Anderson obviously knows how to stay busy. In addition to running a football camp, he's also training for this upcoming season, watching game film and playing a little golf. Walker's take: After one championship season in Baltimore, a strong case can be made that Dilfer is the best quarterback in Ravens history. Think about it.
- Browns quarterback Derek Anderson is having a good time running his football camp at his high-school alma mater in Oregon.
