Morning take: Joe Thomas' ranking

Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday in the AFC North: Morning take: After Ben Roethlisberger's No. 41 ranking and Thomas at No. 43, I'm seriously questioning the validity of these ratings. There will always be surprises on any list, but these are major whiffs.
Morning take: That is a tremendous turnout for one team. The lockout likely will go into July and it's time for teams to do all it can to hit the ground running.
Morning take: I don't think the odds are even that high. The Steelers have more than enough receivers and don’t need to get older at the position.
Morning take: Zbikowski is the favorite entering training camp but Nakamura will not roll over. Either way Baltimore will have depth at the position.
