Morning take: Ranking Ben Roethlisberger

Here are the most interesting stories Saturday in the AFC North: Morning take: I disagree. I think you start any quarterback discussion with Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, then work from there. I would probably rank Drew Brees third and Roethlisberger fourth. But they're all great players.
Morning take:  Reed's younger brother was reportedly involved in a police chase and jumped into a river. The safety is expected to play Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Morning take: Johnson spent 17 years with the Bengals and was very well-respected. He led the Bengals to a 10-4 record in 1976 after Hall of Famer Paul Brown retired.
Morning take: Mularkey has good qualities. He is a good offensive mind and has the ability to work with young quarterbacks. But his previous stint as a head coach in Buffalo may be a concern.
