Here are the most interesting stories Thursday in the AFC North: Morning take: According to the report, the Bengals need to sell about 5,000 tickets Thursday. The NFL may have to grant an extension for Cincinnati to have a chance to televise Sunday’s game.
Morning take: Clayton would be a good boost for Baltimore’s offense in Week 1, as long as summer rust doesn't become an issue.
Morning take: Becoming the reigning Super Bowl MVP has changed Holmes’ life for the better. The next step is getting 1,000 yards and developing into Pittsburgh’s No. 1 receiver.
Morning take: Mangini hinted that both will play. The Minnesota Vikings have arguably the top defensive line in football. So Mack and Fraley need to be at the top of their game.
