Here are the most interesting stories in the AFC North:

Morning take: No surprise here. Pittsburgh was one of the few teams that bottled up Slaton (13 carries, 43 yards) in Week 1 of his rookie season.

Morning take: Mason in particular spent a majority of his career catching passes from McNair in Baltimore and with the Tennessee Titans, and their bond goes far beyond the gridiron.

Morning take: We will have more on "Madden" this afternoon, once I finish taking NFC East blogger Matt Mosley to task in the upcoming Eli Manning vs. Ben Roethlisberger debate.

Morning take: Coffman could help the Bengals if he recovers from his foot injury this summer. Getting to training camp on time would be a good first step.
