Morning take: Haloti Ngata's contract

By James Walker

Here are the most interesting stories Friday in the AFC North: Morning take: Ngata is looking to become one of the NFL's highest-paid defensive linemen, and he's earned it. For Ravens fans thinking they can sign Ngata and cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha in the same offseason, forget about it.
Morning take: Palmer is from California and San Francisco needs a quarterback. It makes sense. But it remains to be seen if the Bengals will entertain trade possibilities.
Morning take: Townsend and Horton spent plenty of time together in Pittsburgh and will bring some of that flavor to Arizona.
Morning take: It can be done, but this is a lot of responsibility for a first-year coach. This will be something to monitor closely next season.
