Morning take: Steelers vets on Mendenhall

Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC North: Morning take: The general consensus is Mendenhall should avoid these controversial topics in his position. Everyone is free to express their opinions. But there's a lot to lose for pro athletes to do it in such a public forum.
Morning take: Throwing deep is not McCoy's game and arm strength is perhaps his biggest weakness. This is another reason why switching to the West Coast offense is a good idea.
Morning take: M&T Bank Stadiums is a very tough place to play, and Ravens fans love cheering their defense. Week 1 will be exciting when the Steelers come to town.
Morning take: Whitworth is one of Cincinnati's best leaders, so I'm not surprised. Quarterback Jordan Palmer also has worked with Bengals receivers this offseason.
