Morning take: No Carson Palmer trade

By James Walker

Here are the most interesting stories Friday in the AFC North: Morning take: History says Bengals owner Mike Brown won't budge and Palmer seems content on retirement, as well. Look for this high-stakes poker game to go well into the summer to see who blinks first.
Morning take: Zbikowski is taking full advantage of the lockout by getting back into boxing, which is something he's very good at. The Ravens have to hope no injuries occur to Zbikowski, who could be the team's starting safety next season.
Morning take: Beside the fact both players had knee surgeries, I think comparing these two is a stretch. Bowers' surgery is relative minor compared to the multiple knee injuries Hardesty suffered in recent years.
Morning take: Pittsburgh has done a great job finding receivers in the later rounds. Pettis is another player who had a productive career and could be a mid-round prospect this year.
