Morning take: Kevin Kolb to Bengals?
By James Walker
Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday in the AFC North:
Morning take: With the lockout likely going beyond this month's NFL draft, I think that lowers the chance of the Bengals making a serious push for Kolb. For the right price, he should be an option. But all indications are that the Bengals will look for "Carson Palmer insurance" in the draft first and foremost.
- ESPN's Adam Schefter writes the Cincinnati Bengals could be a trading partner for Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb.
Morning take: The entire panel pegs Georgia receiver A.J. Green for Cleveland. The pick will help the passing game and second-year quarterback Colt McCoy. But the Browns are in desperate need of help on the defensive line.
Morning take: This is a move I think every dedicated team should make. Flacco and the Ravens are at an advantage because the players know the offense. This should help Baltimore hit the ground running whenever a new collective bargaining agreement is reached.
- Mike Duffy of BaltimoreRavens.com writes that starting quarterback Joe Flacco plans to organize player workouts with teammates later this month.
Morning take: Alabama's James Carpenter Jr., Marcus Gilbert of Florida and Jarriel King of South Carolina are not big names. But it shows Pittsburgh's diligence in finding depth and youth in the trenches. The Steelers played much of last season with a patchwork offensive line due to injuries.
